What We Do

WHAT WE DO

The Medicine Hat General Hospital, built in 1888-1890, was the first hospital in the entire Northwest Territories and the only one - between Winnipeg and Vancouver. Donations have been an important part of local healthcare from the very beginning. In fact, the original hospital was funded almost entirely from donations.

WHERE DOES YOUR MONEY GO?

We are proud to say that 100% of your donation goes to local healthcare initiatives. Thanks to donors like you, we fund new equipment, programming, and services that positively impact patient and family experiences. These enhancements serve to provide:

  • State of the art medical equipment and technology
  • Comfortable environments for friends and family to gather for strength and support
  • Opportunities to connect and give back to the Medicine Hat community
