Help Us Keep Care Close To Home
Year over year, the Wiarton and Hepworth Tim Hortons restaurants have made such a positive and lasting impact on local health care through this national fundraising campaign. To date $36,947 has been donated for priority health care on the Bruce Peninsula through the Smile Cookie Campaign. This year, Smile Cookie will assist in funding new X-Ray Machines for the Wiarton & Lion’s Head Hospitals for a total cost of $1,020,000 for both hospital sites.
The x-ray is the most commonly used and accessible diagnostic tool. It is often referred to as the first line of defense when diagnosing patients. Most patients who end up in the ER, and those who are admitted at some point in their hospital journey will receive an x-ray. It may be to diagnose a broken arm or ankle, or a chest x-ray to determine pneumonia. The x-ray informs the physician of what type of care or test the patient requires next.
The x-ray is a work horse – x-rays are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Support Your Organization and Bruce Peninsula Hospitals Foundation
BPH Foundation would be pleased to be the charity of choice for your next fundraising event. Third-party events are coordinated and hosted by people who wish to hold their own fundraiser to benefit the health care needs of the people of the Bruce Peninsula area, Lion’s Head Hospital or Wiarton Hospital by donating their net profits to BPHF.
Like most charities, we rely on donations from the general public, businesses, service clubs and special events to help raise urgently needed funds for medical and diagnostic equipment. In addition to raising funds, third-party events help increase awareness about the hospitals and BPH Foundation.
