Huntsville Hospital Foundation kicked off the new year with a $235,000 donation from local philanthropists, Chris and George Gilley. This donation brings their lifetime giving to almost $2 million and marks the 17th consecutive year that the Gilleys have generously made an investment in local healthcare.  

The donation from the Gilley’s will help purchase new state-of-the-art technology and equipment that is not funded by the government.

Katherine Craine, CEO of Huntsville Hospital Foundation says “Most [people] are often surprised to learn that the government does not fund essential medical equipment, or total construction costs to build and furnish a new hospital.

The Foundation says it is a pivotal time for Huntsville Hospital Foundation. Recently the Ontario Government announced the approval for operational funding for a first ever MRI for Muskoka. With this news, the Foundation increased its Focus On Imaging campaign goal to $10 million.
