ABOUT THE MILTON DISTRICT HOSPITAL FOUNDATION
Milton District Hospital is a 65-bed community hospital providing mostly primary care to the residents of Milton. The hospital currently serves a town and rural population of over 85,000. Areas of clinical emphasis include obstetrics, general medicine, surgery, rehabilitation and complex continuing care.
The original building was constructed in 1959; in 1987 an addition was built and more than 60 per cent of the building was completely renovated. In 2007 a new Diagnostic Imaging Annex was built adjacent to the old Diagnostic Imaging Centre. MDH is situated on 30 acres of land with approximately 20 acres remaining for future development. The area’s population is expected to grow to 128,000 by 2016 with projections of the town reaching a population of 170,000 by 2021.
While the government provides most of the day-to-day costs of running Milton District Hospital, it does not provide all of the funding for the hospital’s equipment needs. Milton District Hospital Foundation raises funds to help purchase vital medical equipment and improve facilities. It is only through the generous support of the community that our hospital will continue to be well-equipped to serve you, your family and your friends when you need it most.
A registered charity founded in 1980, Milton District Hospital Foundation (MDHF) works to raise funds for Milton District Hospital (MDH), site of Halton Healthcare Services (HHS). As the government does not provide all the funding for hospital equipment needs, MDHF raises funds to help purchase vital medical equipment and improve the facilities through annual fundraising initiatives, community events, and a combination of various other programs. All donations made to MDHF remain in Milton.
Over the years MDHF has developed a strong tradition of community support to ensure the people of Milton have access to quality healthcare close to home. You can help to meet the healthcare needs of tomorrow by participating today. MDHF most gratefully acknowledges all those who continue their generous support through individual, community or corporate partnerships with MDHF to benefit the hospital. The Foundation is managed by an Executive Director supported by a volunteer board. Board members, who are elected from Milton area residents, are committed to helping Milton District Hospital meet the needs of the community now and in the future.
