About the Chesley & District Health Services Foundation

The Chesley and District Memorial Hospital Foundation was created as a separate entity and by-laws were created in 1994.  Before this it had been a part of the governing Board of Directors of the hospital. Founding members of the Foundation are Robert Hutchinson - Chair, Guy Kirvan - Sec. Treas., Donna Thomson, Peter Loucks and Cliff Rier. The purpose of the Foundation was “to receive and maintain a fund or funds and to apply from time to time all or part thereof and the income therefrom to and for the benefit of the Chesley and District Memorial Hospital.”  At the time of its inception there were five directors. In 2004 a by-law was revised to increase the number of members to eleven.  Nine of these members represent, and are elected from Chesley, Brant, Bentinck, Arran-Elderslie, Arran-Tara, Sullivan and the Hospital Auxilliary. A representative also comes from the Board of Directors of the South Bruce Grey Health Centre and SBGHC Corporate.  The name of the foundation also was updated in 2004.

 

All monies raised benefit health care at the Chesley site, SBGHC, in the form of equipment or renovations.  Since 1994, with the generosity of the community, the Foundation has been able to purchase items and make renovations valuing almost 1.5 Million Dollars from 2000 to 2019.

CKNX Healthcare Heroes Radiothon

The 18th Annual CKNX Health Care Heroes Radiothon was held Saturday October 19, 2019, airing live on CKNX am 920.  Last year's project, 4 new hospital beds for the Chesley Hospital, have been making patients more comfortable, safer and healthier for awhile now.  This year's project is a Hematology POCT Analyzer, $30,567.  The support received through the Radiothon and BBQ at the Chesley Grocery Store means the medical staff gets blood test results in a minute instead of twenty minutes after being taxied to Walkerton.

Any additional donations for future projects always are welcome.  The Chesley Foundation and Hospital thank CKNX and all who donated.  The patients, staff, volunteers and Foundation are extremely grateful for the strong community support.
