Current Needs

With your assistance we can enhance our community's health care services...one gift at a time. This is even more important during this COVID-19 crisis when the on-going daily functioning of our hospitals is so critical.

_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________

OUR IMMEDIATE PRIORITY IS BEATING COVID-19! NOW MORE THAN EVER OUR HOSPITALS NEED TO CONTINUE FUNCTIONING AT THEIR BEST. THIS MEANS THE MOST CURRENT UP-TO-DATE EQUIPMENT. YOUR CONTINUING SUPPORT FOR THE HOSPITAL'S EQUIPMENT WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE TO OUR SUCCESSFULLY BEATING COVID-19.

Last year's CKNX HEALTH CARE HEROES RADIOTHON helped raise $30,567 for a new Hematology Analyzer. This year, the Foundation's HEALTH CARE HEROES RADIOTHON goal is 12,000 for IV Pumps and Poles. The Foundation looks forward to your continued participation in this event in support of your community hospital.

Thanks to your generosity in supporting healthcare in our community, we've come this far. 

Now it is even more important. Upgrading and enhancing Chesley Hospital's equipment enables our health care staff to continue giving us the best patient care possible. This year Chesley Hospital needs the following equipment.


 2020 Fundraising Projects

The Chesley & District Health Services Foundation has committed to funding the following items.

  • ER instruments, equipment & Oxygen Drops

 How Your Gifts Have Helped

With our 2019 Radiothon and Christmas campaign successes, Bruce Power's generous contribution and service club, community group, local business, church, individual and legacy & estate donations that were received all year round, we now have a new Hematology Analyzer, Central Cardiac Monitors, Spirometry Machine, Safe Room, new Emergency and In-Patient nursing stations and accessible washroom at the Chesley Hospital. This is possible because of YOU! Thank You! Our next step is funding this year's equipment needs.

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.

COVID-19:  During this health crisis, the Foundation is working off-site; however, donations can be made to P.O. Box 40, Chesley, via canadahelps.org or at hospital registration. In response to the increased COVID-19 cases in Bruce-Grey, the next Board meeting will be a zoom meeting, Wednesday, January 13, 2021.


The on-going support for the Chesley Hospital is greatly appreciated. With their donation one supporter said, "Thanks for always treating my dad so well. I hope this helps" The Foundation wishes to extend this Thank You to all medical and support staff - take care of yourselves!


Thanks to the generosity of the Chesley community, we continue to fund a Physician Recruiter, Chenelle Monk, who is doing a great job. Even with COVID-19 physician recruitment and retention has been strengthened with a digital marketing footprint and by keeping in touch with current contacts. We also have secured ongoing locum coverage for physicians to easily check out our community. This year we have four new locum doctors in our clinic and several physicians added to our ER locum group. This winter's projects include a promotional video, 2021 rural medicine retreat, and, along with the Foundation, a green space at the hospital. This amazing community makes it enjoyable to share Chesley in the search for great candidates! For any questions, information or general inquiries Chenelle: 519-377-2441 or chenelle@physicianrecruitmentchesley.com
