First Grant from the Dr. William S. Monk Community Health Care Development Fund
The Muskoka Community Foundation announced a donation of $30,000 to Hospice Muskoka from the Dr. William Monk Community Health Care Development Fund.
The Fund was established in October 2023 as a community-centric tool to attract, retain and develop primary health care professionals across Muskoka. The donation to Hospice Muskoka is the first initiative supported by the fund, and monies will go towards immediate operational needs while Hospice Muskoka seeks provincial government funding.
Kathryn Monk says that “Recognizing the need to not only retain the exceptional and dedicated Nurse Practitioners currently on staff who are working full tilt, but to also attract an additional primary care professional to help with their current and expanded services, I hope that this donation will assist in some small way in achieving this important short-term goal.”
