“Under One Roof” Campaign Cabinet... Committed to the Cause



Co-Chairs, David Beatty and Mary Jean McFall are surrounded by the dedicated community members making up the “Under One Roof” Campaign Cabinet. In recent months, this group has been working behind the scenes, alongside the Brockville and District Hospital Foundation (BDHF) garnering support for this project. The goal of the Cabinet is to secure the $20 million community share required for the redevelopment of the Brockville General Hospital. This is the largest fundraising effort in the history of the Foundation.

 

This redevelopment project will amalgamate the services of the Brockville General Hospital currently provided at the Charles and Garden Street sites under one roof at the Charles Street site.

 

The municipalities of Leeds-Grenville have made key lead donations to the campaign. The members of the Cabinet, staff and Board of the Foundation would like to take the opportunity to thank its donors and the communities of Leeds and Grenville. The City of Brockville, the United Counties of Leeds & Grenville, the Town of Prescott and the Town of Gananoque are to be commended for their commitment to the Brockville General Hospital’s Redevelopment Project…communities building their community hospital.
