CLOSE TO HOME
Your contribution, regardless of the amount, will go a long way in helping us reach our goal of replacing and supplying the equipment so desperately needed
CLOSE TO HOME
A campaign helping everyone in the community- including YOU!
Many of the essential medical equipment, systems and software at your hospital are reaching the end of their life expectancy. Therefore, they must be replaced or upgraded in departments such as Radiology, Obstetrics, the Laboratory and the Operating Room.
In order to continue to deliver high standards of medical care, the “Care Close to Home” campaign needs to raise $6.5 million dollars to fund these necessary improvements. The Temiskaming Hospital Foundation is planning for a healthy future.
WHY IT MATTERS
Private donations from the community are critical if your hospital is to continue to deliver modern standards of medical care to you and your family. This critical equipment will offer you faster diagnoses, earlier treatments and eliminates the need for stressful travel on our northern roads. We have an extraordinary team of doctors, nurses and staff at Temiskaming Hospital. Our goal is to ensure that they have the equipment they need to provide our community with the best possible care -- close to home!
DID YOU KNOW?
Ontario hospitals are funded by the Ministry of Health & Long-Term Care for approximately 85% of their operating budget. Items such as beds, diagnostic or surgical equipment and facility upgrades are NOT funded by the ministry.
The Temiskaming Hospital is your local health care hub providing regional services like Obstetrics, Level 1B Nursery, Telemedicine, and the majority of general surgery to approximately 33,000 people. We need your support to keep quality care close to home.

6th Annual Valentine's Day Radiothon
With February being Heart Month, this year's Valentine's Day Radiothon will focus on improving cardiac care at Temiskaming Hospital.
Our 6th Annual Valentine's Day Radiothon will be raising money for 3 ECG Machines.
ECG Machines can detect heart problems by measuring the electrical activity generated by the heart as it contracts and can diagnose abnormal rhythm, poor blood supply to the heart and heart inflammation.
Our Valentine's Day Radiothon will take place on Saturday, February 8th, 2020 from 9 am until 2 pm on CJTT FM - Temiskaming Shores, Ontario
This fundraiser is meant to help everyone in the community, including YOU!
Your monthly or one-time donation can have a big impact. Read for yourself how it's helped others already.
"The total reason for Care Close to Home is that we can be looked after, so we don't have to be on the road. Precious moments when you're ill, it's only moments that you have to find out what's wrong. And our doctors will certainly find that out here or send you to a place."
