SMMH in Bracebridge receives $1 Million Dollar Gift
Bracebridge’s South Muskoka Memorial Hospital (SMMH) has received a $1 million dollar donation. Thanks to Peter Gilgan, founder and CEO of Mattamy Homes, SMMH can now offer residents and seasonal visitors’ better emergency care. The Peter Gilgan Emergency Department was unveiled yesterday afternoon during a special reception in recognition of the largest donation from a seasonal resident in the history of the South Muskoka Hospital Foundation. The $1 million donation will go towards the $6.5 million dollar capital campaign, which Gilgan has agreed to serve as Honourary Chair. Funds will also be used to purchase new equipment.
