About the Foundation
The West Lincoln Memorial Hospital Foundation works with the community to help raise funds for equipment, upgrading of facilities, and special projects for the West Lincoln Memorial Hospital. Incorporated in 1981, the role of the Foundation is to provide our community with an opportunity to continually improve patient care at the West Lincoln Memorial Hospital through a wide range of giving opportunities. Second only to the provincial government, the West Lincoln Memorial Hospital Foundation is the largest funder of West Lincoln Memorial Hospital. It is through the support of our community, the Foundation continues to play a crucial role in the advancement of healthcare at West Lincoln Memorial. The Foundation is currently supporting the revitalization of programs within the following core areas – B Ward, C Ward, Education, Emergency, Intensive Care Unit, Laboratory, Obstetrics, Operating Room, Pharmacy and Radiology.

A strong West Lincoln Memorial Hospital benefits all. Everyone from the tiniest newborn babies to the oldest residents of our community rely on our local hospital to meet their healthcare needs at some point in their lifetime. Your investments in new state-of-the-art radiology technology and equipment enables our Hospital to continue to deliver the very best in diagnostics. Project X-ray provides West Lincoln Memorial Hospital with general x-ray service, fluoroscopy examination in real time, ultrasound technology with echocardiogram and colour doppler abilities, a mobile radiography system, mammography units with clearer imaging allowing more surety of diagnosis without the need for invasive techniques, and a picture archiving and communication system (PACS) that stores x-rays and scans electronically. While some of this equipment has been installed at WLMH, the Foundation continues to work with our community to fund this initiative. The Project X-ray campaign goal is estimated at $3.6m. Outstanding grant to WLMH as at fiscal year ending March 31, 2014 totals some $1.072m. Our mission has never been clearer…..come lend a hand.
Investing in Life Campaign
In 2000 the Foundation launched a $12.5m ‘bricks and mortar’ campaign to build a new West Lincoln Memorial Hospital. The Foundation is pleased to announce that this goal has been fulfilled by dollars raised and pledges, substantiating the dream for a new hospital. This dream will continue to be pursued until it becomes a reality, and all contributions fuelling this dream will remain secure in a restricted trust fund. Your investing in life is building a healthier community.
