About the Foundation
Funding the hospital with a goal to achieve the highest standards
Monitors in ICU
We believe our community deserves the best medical care that modern technology and medical caregivers can provide. The role of the Lakeshore General Hospital (LGH) Foundation is to raise funds for the purchase of medical equipment from the Hospital’s priority needs list. Each year, the Equipment Committee of the West Island Health and Social Services Centre (WI HSSC) submits requests to the LGH Foundation’s Board of Directors for specific equipment acquisitions identified by doctors, nurses, and administrators as priority items. All requests must relate to patient care.
Your donation to the LGH Foundation allows for a higher standard of equipment than allowed for by government funding alone. Better equipment helps to attract medical professionals and results in better care for you and all of our patients.
In recent years, donations to the LGH Foundation have helped purchase, among other items, the following equipment: a pulmonary function machine for Inhalation Therapy, an echocardiogram and computerized stress treadmill for Cardiology, an MRI and mammography unit for Radiology, phototherapy equipment for the Nursery, specialized chairs for Geriatrics and Dialysis, and surgical lasers and other Operating Room equipment for Orthopedics, Urology and General Surgery.
