Will you continue to make your community hospital the

very best it can be?

Caring and generosity: They are traditions in our Meaford community.

And when it comes to our health care, we give from the heart. Our local hospital is where we go for help in an emergency. Where our loved ones are treated with care. And the place we trust with our lives.

As Physician Lead here in Meaford, I have the great privilege of seeing your caring and generosity at work, every day.

I grew up in the Georgian Triangle area. As a teen in high school, I had an interest in health care and had an opportunity to do a co-op at the hospital. I started off cleaning operating room floors and making beds. Then one of the doctors asked me to join him in the operating room. That was it – I knew it was what I wanted to do.

I worked multiple part-time jobs to help with my education. It was very difficult, but I always believe if you want something, you can achieve it. It took thirteen years of my life – and it was worth it.

Everything of value is worth working for.

I moved my practice to Meaford in 2022 because it reminded me of my hometown – a small town where people know each other. Today, nearly two years later, I couldn’t be prouder to be a part of the hospital that donor generosity built and has continued to support through the growth and changes the community has seen.

We continue to grow.

The incredible growth of our population will continue to require expanded programs and services throughout the communities of Grey and Bruce to meet the increasing healthcare needs of our friends and neighbours. As I write, our hospital will continue to need new medical equipment and upgrades to existing equipment. We must continue to make critical investments in technology to get the highest quality of care for our patients and so we can recruit and retain physicians, nurses and other healthcare professionals.

With outstanding community support, we have continued to advance health care – and with your support today – the future of our hospital looks even brighter. The equipment our donors have helped fund has led to faster diagnoses, state-of-the-art treatment, and access to care. That generosity has helped save lives. Mothers, fathers, children – your family, friends and neighbours, have received the benefits of a well-equipped and staffed hospital.

I’m asking for your help today.

By equipping our doctors and staff with the latest technology, your gift today will ensure that every one of our patients can count on the most advanced care possible from a hospital that is close to home. I hope they can count on you to continue this tradition of giving by sending a gift today.

I changed specialties to rural family medicine because, as a small-town doctor, I wanted to get to know my patients and make a difference in their lives. I want to make sure the people in my community have a good quality of life, by tending to their healthcare needs while being empathetic and an active listener.

The Meaford community has given me the opportunity to be the doctor I always wanted to be.

We are neighbours. We are friends. And we need your support. Please take a moment to send a gift today.

With my sincere gratitude,
