Georgian Bay General Hospital has launched an adopt-a-room program in order to raise funds to cover the costs of much-needed renovations of patient rooms at the facility.
Starting in 2019, 48 patient rooms containing 64 beds will be completely renovated.
“This hospital was built in the 1970s and it needs some upgrading,” said Gail Hunt, GBGH CEO.
Many patient rooms in the facility haven’t seen upgrades since they were constructed in 1976. The hospital is looking to overhaul each room by installing new drywall, sinks, plumbing, lighting fixtures, flooring and updating the furniture.
Raytheon ELCAN and the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 80 in Midland recently donated $12,000 to the adopt-a-room program to renovate a four-bed room.
