The Muskoka Algonquin Healthcare announced that they are grateful for the community’s assistance in providing hospitals in the area with donations of PPE. MAHC has said that supply levels are in a stable and solid position, and community donations of PPE are no longer required.

The Huntsville Hospital Foundation and South Muskoka Hospital Foundation facilitated more than 200 in-kind donations of PPE and other supplies, prepared food and snacks for staff, homemade masks and other items for staff use, and approximately 50 offers of accommodations for staff. As well, throughout the pandemic the Foundations have raised much-needed funds through generous donations by community organizations and service clubs, businesses and individual residents – both seasonal and permanent.

MAHC Chief Executive Officer Natalie Bubela said “On behalf of all of us at MAHC, we thank every community donor for reaching out and recognizing the importance of supporting their hospitals during times of need. This is truly the definition of community and really demonstrates to us that Muskoka cares,”
“Our staff and physicians are also so grateful for the more than 12,320 staff meals facilitated by the Foundations thanks to donations. Thank you one and all!”
