Frequently Asked Questions
What is the the Foundation and the Care Close to Home Campaign?
The Temiskaming Hospital Foundation was established in 2006 in order to raise funds for the
Hospital. In 2016, the Care Close to Home campaign was created in order to raise the $6.5M needed in order to replace aging hospital equipment. All funds raised by the Foundation go towards providing our community with the best possible healthcare close to home.
Why now for the Capital Campaign?
The hospital needs to acquire new patient equipment, replace equipment that is nearing the end of its life cycle and make necessary upgrades to its facility, all to be able to ensure the
community of Temiskaming Shores has access to the most up-to-date hospital facilities and
services. The hospital has not undertaken a capital campaign of this size since 2006 when, as many people will remember, it ran the successful campaign to acquire its first CT Scanner.
Why should I donate to the Capital Campaign?
This campaign is about people. If you, a member of your family, a neighbour or coworker
needs hospital care and services, you want to be sure that Temiskaming Hospital has the latest and most modern standard of medical care available. As a donor to this capital campaign, you will be helping the hospital to continue to provide quality health care close to home, ensure the recruitment and retention of physicians and professional staff and provide education rotation for healthcare and medical students from the Northern Ontario School of Medicine (NOSM).
Having modern medical and patient care equipment also supports the board’s direction to bring into the hospital space more services like ambulatory care, palliative care and rehabilitation for patients coming back from North Bay and Sudbury post stroke and orthopaedic surgery, to name a few.
Does the government provide funding for the Temiskaming Hospital?
No, the government does not fund the Temiskaming Hospital for patient care equipment.
Hospitals in Ontario receive funding to cover their day-to-day operations from the Ministry of
Health and Long-Term Care; however, the hospital is accountable to develop fundraising
campaigns for patient care equipment, infrastructure renewal and facility upgrades.
