The “Under One Roof” Campaign Co-Chairs Thank the City of Brockville

The Brockville and District Hospital Foundation’s “Under One Roof” Campaign Co-Chairs recently presented a plaque to the City of Brockville. The plaque was presented at the November 27th City Council meeting as an expression of gratitude to the City of Brockville for their generous contribution to Brockville General Hospital’s Phase II Redevelopment Project.
