A message to our community Karen McGrath, President and CEO, Georgian Bay General Hospital


eorgian Bay General Hospital once again took centre stage in our community in 2015; the story revolved around the exceptional care provided by our frontline staff and physi-

cians and the overall dedication of the more than 600 staff members and more than 200 volunteers who make this hospital a vital part of our community. We are all very much aware of the financial challenges faced by our hospital throughout the past four years and last year our hospital and our community was confronted with yet another funding crisis that threatens clinical services at our hospital. And while we have struggled with those challenges we never lost sight of the reason we are here; to serve the health care needs of our community. Over the past year our staff saved more lives, comforted more families and worked harder to improve how we deliver health care services every day.

Ralph Befort, Board Chair, Georgian Bay General Hospital

We underwent an incredibly successful Accreditation review that left us proud of what we do; the Accreditation Canada team of surveyors had wonderful things to say about our care, our innovative thinking and the improvements we have made over the last four years. What we do here at Georgian Bay General Hospital relies in large part on the support of our community. A community hospital can only succeed when the community is behind it and that commitment to GBGH is more evident every day in North Simcoe. Hospitals play a vital role in the communities they serve and, in turn, the community plays a vital role in helping the hospital keep pace with the ever-changing health-care technology. One of the avenues GBGH uses to connect with the community is through the GBGH Foundation. The Foundation brings together the donors who provide the much-needed funds that make it possible for GBGH to provide our health-care professionals with the tools they need

Karen Roberts, President, Georgian Bay General Hospital Volunteer Association

to do their jobs – providing the best care possible. Funding from the province does not include money to purchase capital equipment, which means GBGH must rely on community support to acquire those tools. Last year, the foundation raised nearly $1.5 million to help the hospital meet patient needs. Everyone at your hospital knows the difference your gifts make. Thank you to everyone who supported us this year – by making a donation, volunteering, hosting or attending one of our events. We can’t do what we do without you!

eorgian Bay General Hospital (GBGH) achieved 98% of Accreditation Canada’s standards for excellence and has been awarded a four-year Accreditation certificate. Of the 2,015 applicable standards tested by Accreditation Canada during their visit to the hospital in December 2015, 1,970 were met! Accreditation is the voluntary process by which hospitals evaluate their performance against national standards. The external peer review provides assessment and improvement opportunities based on standards of excellence. “I am very proud of the team here at GBGH,” President and CEO Karen McGrath said. “In eight dimensions of quality we met 98% of the standards we were measured against, and I believe this accreditation proved we are going in the right direction.” The accreditation process began with self-assessment on-line surveys, involving staff, board members and focus groups over many months. A four-member team of health care professionals (the surveyors) visited the hospital during the first week of December to complete a hands-on review. They looked at all aspects of the organization, reviewing documents, interviewing teams representing leadership, support and patient services, touring the facilities and holding focus groups and impromptu conversations with patients, staff, board members and community partners. In the end, they agreed that GBGH has many strengths

including staff commitment, strong commitment to improvement and the transformation journey, quality communication both internally and externally, and a true understanding of the patients the hospital serves. The surveyors made special mention of the housekeeping team for the safe and clean environment at GBGH and the volunteers for being the frontline warriors of a very robust hand hygiene program. They also commended the organization for the successful introduction of the Aboriginal Patient Navigator, the selftriage system in the emergency department, the antibiotic stewardship program and a patient passport tool introduced in the hospital’s active rehabilitation program.

“I am very proud of the team here at GBGH. In eight dimensions of quality we met 98% of the standards we were measured against, and I believe this accreditation proved we are going in the right direction. ”

e r o F Georgian Bay General Hospital



undraising for your local community hospital can be FUN! Just ask anyone who has participated in the South East Georgian Bay (SEGBAY) Chamber of Commerce Golf Tournament. Upon discovering that provincial funding in Ontario doesn’t pay for a single piece of equipment for their local hospital, the SEGBAY Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with Larche Communications (parent company of local radio stations KICX 106 and 104.1 The Dock), voted unanimously to support Georgian Bay General Hospital with an annual golf tournament. “The golf tournament idea for the hospital came about after SEGBAY President Paul Herriott and I attended a ‘Breakfast of Champions’ session at GBGH,” said Fred Wareing, another SEGBAY member and tournament chair. “There we learned that all hospitals have to raise money for equipment and upgrades; that the government did not provide that funding. This was a surprise to us.” Two years in, the tournament has already raised $62,000 for a state-of-the-art treat-

ment room in the Emergency Department at GBGH, along with two hospitals beds. The volunteer committee hopes that this year’s tournament, on August 9th at Bonaire Golf Course, will raise another $30,000. “Quick access to medical help is of primary importance to all our members. The hospital is also a key source of good paying jobs for our community. This attracts skilled people to the community which in turn leads to more local spending which then attracts more businesses to the community. So as well as providing needed medical help to our citizens, the hospital also strongly assists in creating a healthy economic environment,” added Wareing. The SEGBAY Chamber of Commerce represents businesses in Severn, Tay and Georgian Bay Township.

Construction crews returning to GBGH Next phases of Emergency Department project set to start

2001 2005 2009 2012 2014 2016 Planning Begins


early two years after the celebration to mark the opening of phase one of the new Emergency Department project at Georgian Bay General Hospital, the final phases of the project are about to begin. The hospital has begun the process of pre-qualifying prospective contractors in anticipation of the next stages of construction. Phases two and three will see the construction of a four-bay ambulance garage as well as a retrofit to bring the old spaces into alignment with the new. Pre-qualifying is the step taken before the project goes to RFP, after which construction is expected to begin sometime this summer and be complete in 18-24 months. For the past two years the hospital has been working on the plans and schematic block drawings to seek approval from the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care to proceed to the construction phase, which was granted

earlier this year. The total cost for these next phases is $9.1-million. Our Emergency Department Revitalization has been a wonderful example of community support. Phase one – a 6,000-square-foot addition – was opened in June of 2014 at a cost of $5-million, which was funded entirely by the community. While the province has committed more than $8-million toward phases two and three, our community has once again supported in earnest, raising an additional $2.1-million for capital expenses and the equipment your physicians and nurses need to provide you with the best care. When complete, the department will have grown from 10,000 square feet to nearly 17,000 square feet and will include new trauma rooms, treatment rooms, ambulance garage, secure areas and waiting rooms, at a total cost of $14.1-million.

THE electronic health record Our vision to provide exceptional care continues...


he Electronic Health Record has changed the pace of healthcare; soon your physicians at GBGH will be accessing, reviewing, communicating, making diagnosis and treatment plans quicker thanks to a new software addition. Our vision is to optimize our health re-

cord system so that physicians are able to enter their orders, document notes, receive alerts and notifications about their patients, and share the information with other clinicians. This will ensure more accurate entry of information along with more timely delivery of diagnosis and treatment for patients in our care, assisting us in our vision to provide exceptional care, every person, every time. The software that provides this leap forward in electronic health care is called the Physician Care Manager. This critical software, along with all the equipment at Georgian Bay General Hospital, is not funded

by the government and therefore must be purchased with funds donated by our community. In April 2015, the Foundation Cornerstone Partners took on the challenge of raising $651,078 to purchase the Physician Care Manager for GBGH! This wonderful group of 66 community members recognized the value this program brings to patients at GBGH and has jointly pledged more than $115,000 annually. Their funds support the equipment needs at GBGH, through individual contributions of $500, $1,000 or $2,500 each year on an annual basis. If you would like to learn more about becoming a Cornerstone Partner and supporting the Electronic Health Record, please contact Shelly Price in the GBGH Foundation Office at 705-526-GIVE (4483).

The Road Home

a Patient''s journey E

very journey has a destination, and in active rehabilitation that destination is usually home. The roadmap for this journey at Georgian Bay General Hospital is called the Patient Passport. Developed by the Therapy Team at GBGH, the patient passport is a communication tool between the Care Team, Patient and their support network. This unique booklet provides the patient and their support network (family, friends) with information about the Care Team and contact information, plus outlines the patient’s current level of functionality, their goals for discharge and the

recommendations of the Care Team. In essence, it provides the patient with all the information they need to understand and take part in their own active rehabilitation! The passport also provides the patient and support network with details of their responsibilities for arranging equipment and services for discharge and explains what the Care Team is able to provide or refer them to. How does it work? The Patient and their family meet with each of the disciplines involved in their care: Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy, Speech Language Pathology, GBGH 2016 | 16 |

Recreation Therapy, Nursing and Social Work. The Patient keeps the completed passport as a record of their meetings and a list of recommendations from each therapist of the things they need for a successful discharge. Congratulations to the Therapy Team at GBGH for their wonderful team work and innovation! During the visit by Accreditation Canada in 2015, surveyors were very impressed with the Patient Passport. In addition, the Therapy Team was the recipient of a Board Award of Excellence for the innovation.

Thank You for Answering the Call!


nurse call system is a communication lifeline for patients! Hundreds of times each day, patients use a call system to ask nurses questions, alert them to a problem or to request help getting out of bed. In 2015, the 40-year-old call system on 2 North began to work intermittently, and it became a risk the hospital needed to address immediately. Because there is absolutely no government funding for equipment in hospitals, the Foundation partnered with the nurses on the unit to

send out a letter to the community asking for their help. Your respnse was wonderful! 356 members of your community responded with donations, totaling $38,305 toward the new system. In addition, the staff at GBGH pledged their own Staff Giving Circle donations, contributing an additional $3,130 and bringing the total raised to $41,435. Thanks to all of your support, a new and improved nurse call system is in now place and is having a positive im-

pact on patient care. Additional units were installed in the shower and tub rooms, and the negative pressure isolation room to allow nurses to talk to their patients in these areas. There are also satellite units in the halls that allow nursing staff to respond to calls from anywhere on the floor, and the updated command centre is more efficient and user-friendly. Proof that when hospital staff, community members and the Foundation work together, amazing things happen!

THE gbghgala… 10 Years in the Making

“It’s all about the team” – Mary Jane Brooks, founding Gala Committee member.


n 2006, a team of community supporters launched the first Hospital Gala ‘Moonlight on Georgian Bay’ at The Inn at Bay Moorings, raising $45,000 for the Huronia District Hospital. The Gala featured eight chef stations, four entertainers and silent and live auctions with Wayne Middaugh as the Master of Ceremonies. “We were inspired by the Front Line Cancer Foundation’s Titz’n Glitz event we attended in Collingwood,” said Lyn Wolfhard, one of the members of the founding committee. “We actually pulled it off,” said Mary Jane Brooks, another member. “I wanted to serve my community and supporting the hospital was a good way to do it.” Over the next seven years, Lyn and Mary Jane (fondly referred to as the Gala Girls) worked with teams of volunteers to make the Gala bigger and better. They dazzled guests with themes ranging from Hollywood Nights

to Disco Fever, attracting more chefs, entertainers and guests. “It’s all about the team,” said Brooks, mentioning that the event is such a success thanks to the many dedicated volunteers who help out each year. In 2012, the Gala Girls invited Jaime Crouch of Splash Events to take the Gala to new creative heights as the event found its new home at the Midland Cultural Centre. Under his creative direction, guests have visited Paris, New York, Rio and even traveled Around the World to celebrate the 10th Anniversary in 2015. To date, the GBGH Gala has raised an incredible $671,644 for the hospital! The 11th Annual GBGH Gala, ‘Las Vegas, Baby!’ will take place at the MCC on Saturday, October 15, 2016. Tickets are $140 each and can be purchased through the MCC, at Rub of the Green, Splash Events or by calling the Foundation at 705-526-GIVE (4483). GBGH 2016 | 18 |

Celebrating 15 Years of

Celebrity Golf! W

hen Wayne and Sherry Middaugh ran their first Celebrity Golf Tournament in 2001, they had no idea it would become one of the most successful golf fundraisers in Simcoe County! With the help of dedicated volunteers, dozens of celebrities and hundreds of golfers, Wayne and Sherry organized their incredible tournament for 15 years in support of Georgian Bay General Hospital. Each year, participants enjoyed a day of golfing, cocktails, dinner and auction followed by live entertainment. Year after year, interest in the tournament grew, bringing more sponsorship dollars, more exciting auction items and raising more money for the hospital. In 2015, the final year for the tournament, a record $126,174 was raised, thanks to a special $50,000 gift from the Sandra Schmirler Foundation and an incredible live auction. Thanks to their amazing efforts to make their event bigger and better each year, Wayne and Sherry made the Middaugh Celebrity Golf Tournament an incredible success, with a total of $515,862 donated to Georgian Bay General Hospital! Over the years, the tournament has helped to purchase infant incubators, hospital beds, vital signs monitors, a wireless network and more. These are wonderful gifts that will continue to benefit our whole community for years to come. On behalf of everyone at Georgian Bay General Hospital, we want to thank Wayne & Sherry Middaugh, and their amazing volunteer committee, for their incredible generosity over the years!

110th anniversary

Georgian Bay General Hospital Volunteer Association


ne hundred and ten years ago, a small group of dedicated women met to discuss how they could help their hospital, then known as Midland Penetanguishene General and Marine Hospital. Four buildings and five name changes later, that small group has grown to more than 200 women and men who continue to volunteer and keep the vision and mission at Georgian Bay General Hospital very much alive and active. Volunteers contribute an average of 35,000 hours of service every year in virtually every area of the hospital! You’ll find them in the Emergency Department, Ambulatory Care, Diagnostic Imaging, Surgical Day Care, Patient

Happy Anniversary

Units, the Information Desks, Health Records, Patients in Motion and Pharmacy. They also provide assistance to the nurse practitioner and in the medical library. If you’ve ever been to the hospital as a patient or visitor, you have been helped by the volunteers. Fundraising is a large part of what they do — and they do it well! Since 1998, when the record keeping started through the Foundation, the Volunteer Association has given $1,318,175.80 to the hospital for equipment and capital projects. In addition to bake and craft sales, raffles, tag days, geranium sales and butter tarts, the volunteers also operate the very successful Gift Shop and the Coffee Bar and Lottery. These operations alone generate more than $60,000 a year! For shoppers, buying from the gift shop and coffee bar is a real win-win – an opportunity to support your hospital without paying taxes! What began as a group of women mending sheets has grown into a very successful community resource.

march mudness

raises $40,000 for CT Scanner!


alk about bringing an idea to life! In October 2015, Penetanguishene Mayor Gerry Marshall had a vision of bringing his community together to raise funds for their hospital by completing a five kilometer mud run. On March 20, 2016, more than 170 participants converged on Rotary Champlain Wendat Park in Penetanguishene to bring Gerry’s vision to life. The first annual March MUDness was born! Participants braved the chilly weather in their colorful team t-shirts, sporting names such as “Cirque du Sore Legs”, “50 shades of Tay” and “I Can’t Believe it’s not Mudder”. With incredible enthusiasm and energy, participants climbed an enormous snow pile, jumped over hay bales and tires, pulled fire hoses

and crawled through culverts to complete the course. From sponsorships and participant pledges, an incredible $40,000 was donated to the CT Scanner for Georgian Bay General Hospital! Special thanks to Tay Township Mayor Scott Warnock, who brought in the most individual pledges at $1,750, and kudos to GBGH Team “Dirty Rekords� who brought in $2,856 for the highest team total.

This inaugural event was an incredible success as our communities came together to support our hospital. Staff at the Town of Penetanguishene worked tirelessly to organize and promote the event, while title sponsors Magna, ALC and Geranium supported the event with great generosity, and the participants from across North Simcoe raised thousands of dollars and their enthusiasm was phenomenal.

Away From Home


ot everyone who comes to Georgian Bay General Hospital (GBGH) has a permanent home in our community. Each year, seasonal residents, boaters and visitors to our region account for more than 4,500 visits to our Emergency Department. Judy Kaufman is a longtime Georgian Bay boater, who considers Midland her home away from home. In 2014, following surgery in her home community, Judy and her husband were relaxing on their boat when she began to feel she was choking. Not the coughing kind, but she suddenly found that she couldn’t swallow and was having trouble breathing. Thankfully, they were docked at the marina, and were able

“I’m so grateful

to get quickly to the Emergency Department at GBGH. Judy was quickly diagnosed and rushed into emergency surgery. A nurse ran to the parking lot to call the Anesthesiologist back to the Operating Room. Surgery was done to clear the blockage and repair the damage caused by the aforementioned surgery. Within a few hours, Judy was back on the boat and on the road to recovery. “I’m so grateful to the staff at Georgian Bay General Hospital,” says Judy. “I might not be here today if it weren’t for their quick action.” Working with marinas from Penetanguishene around to Honey Harbour, the GBGH Foundation launched the Boat-

ers for Best Care program in 2015, to provide boaters in our area the opportunity to support their hospital away from home. Together, marinas and boaters donated $18,525 toward the purchase of a new CT Scanner at GBGH. There are a number of ways to get involved in 2016. Boaters can participate in a raffle for some incredible boating prizes (full list at www.526give. ca/boatersforbestcare) and join in the fun as marinas across the region host fundraisers in support of Georgian Bay General Hospital.
