The Huntsville Hospital Foundation (HHF) is $50,000 closer to its fundraising goal thanks to two Lake of Bays Cottagers.
Ian Telfer and Nancy Burke donated the amount towards the HHF’s Focus on Imaging Campaign. The campaign has a goal of $5.5-million towards upgrading and replacing the hospital’s diagnostic imaging equipment.
“Most are surprised to learn that the government does not fund essential medical equipment, nor all the costs of building renovations or new construction to expand areas or build new facilities, and that it is the combined responsibility of the community and hospital,” says Katherine Craine, foundation CEO.
According to the HHF, the hospital does more than 42,000 imaging tests per year.
“We donate to support the health care of the whole Huntsville community that’s so dependent on this wonderful hospital,” says Burke. “We hope others will join us by making a donation to the Focus On Imaging campaign.”
