The Huntsville Hospital Foundation announced a donation of $1 Million from the Sprott Foundation today. 

The Foundation says that this represents one of the largest gifts ever received by the hospital and will be invested in urgent care and advanced medicine.

Community leaders and seasonal residents Eric and Vizma Sprott have long been known for their generous support of health care in Ottawa and Toronto.  This gift will have an equally substantial impact on healthcare in Muskoka.

Eric Sprott said “We have had occasion to use the hospital and we’re grateful it is there, especially as we spend more time in this community."

The Sprotts hope their gift will inspire others to give generously to the hospital.  The hospital needs up to $3 million dollars per year to buy new equipment and upgrade technology not funded by the government.
