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.

The 18TH ANNUAL CKNX HEALTH CARE HEROES RADIOTHON this past fall helped raise the $30,567 for a new Hematology Analyzer.

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.

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!

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 still can be mailed to P.O. Box 40, Chesley and via canadahelps.org. As well, the Foundation's AGM, normally held in June, has been rescheduled to September 15, 2020, 7:30PM in the Hospital Board Room, COVID-19 dependent.

The on-going support for the Chesley Hospital continues and is greatly appreciated. One such supporter felt it was a good time to give back and included a message with their generous donation: "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 as well!

Thanks to the generosity of the Chesley community last Christmas, we continue to fund a Physician Recruiter for Chesley and Chenelle Monk has been doing an amazing job, as evidenced, for one, by the smashing success of the Royal Gala. For any questions, information or general inquiries Chenelle can be reach at 519-377-2441 or chenelle@physicianrecruitmentchesley.com
