Letter to Our Donors The Oakville Hospital Foundation recognizes that every donor has the power to make a difference. Thanks to donors like you, the Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital (OTMH) healthcare team can continue to secure the essential equipment and technology it needs to care for thousands of patients every year. Your generosity helped caregivers deliver approximately 2,500 babies last year, perform more than 15,000 MRI scans and 30,000 surgical procedures, and see more than 80,000 emergency department visits. You have changed the lives of thousands of patients this past year. That is the power of your gift. In this annual report, you will find stories about a few of the special gifts we received last year from loyal donors. Their renewed support, and yours, not only fuels leading edge healthcare but also demonstrates trust in OTMHâ€™s vision to
transform the community hospital experience. I hope you will be as touched as I am by the generosity of these donors. As the new Chief Executive Officer of the Oakville Hospital Foundation I am fortunate to be a part of this generous and dedicated community of donors and volunteers. Your dedicated commitment to improving the health of our community is the reason we were able to raise $10.7 million to fund the immediate and urgent priority needs of our Hospital. This level of support would not be possible without you, so on behalf of the patients who are impacted by your support every day, I thank you.
Mary McPherson Chief Executive Officer
Judy and David Campbell For more than 40 years, David and Judy Campbell have called Oakville home. Their daughters were born at the Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital legacy site, as were their grandchildren and Judy is a dedicated volunteer at the Hospital. Understanding the importance of community support, the Campbells have been giving to the Oakville Hospital Foundation and the Oakville Hospital Volunteer Association for close to 20 years and in 2017 made a transformational gift to the Hospital. “We know it is important for everyone in the community to have a hospital with the right equipment since anyone could be a patient
at OTMH one day,” shared Judy Campbell. “We know this gift will provide OTMH staff and physicians with the latest equipment and technologies needed to diagnose and treat patients enabling them to return home as quickly as possible.” Their donation helped fund numerous pieces of equipment throughout the Hospital including two ultrasound machines, a digital mammography machine, a digital x-ray machine, and a sentinel node navigator. In recognition of the Campbells’ extraordinary generosity, the Medical & Surgical Specialty Clinics are named in their honour.
Shoppers LOVE. YOU. Run for Women Mental illness affects one in five Canadians making it the single most disabling group of disorders worldwide. Although mental health is a priority, it is often overlooked and misunderstood. Entirely too common as an illness, women are two times more likely to be diagnosed with depression and anxiety. One in eight women will develop depression at some point in their lives; this is twice as likely as men. To help women live their best lives, the SHOPPERS LOVE. YOU. program is designed to help women stay focused on making their own health a priority by connecting them to the expertise
of partners at leading women’s health organizations and to others in support of women’s health initiatives across Canada. The SHOPPERS LOVE. YOU. Run for Women is Canada’s first and only women’s and girls’ running race series, benefitting women’s mental health initiatives across the country. Last year, the Oakville event raised more than $108,000 for the Mental Health Programs at the Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital. Through this support and partnership, we have realigned groups and programming to better support the complex needs of people living with mental health through
education, health workshops, skills building and opportunities to improve overall wellness. Additionally, donations have allowed us to increase capacity within our program by integrating Peer Mentor supports as part of the inter-disciplinary team to support and facilitate our aftercare groups within the mental Health Day Program. Thank you to Shoppers Drug Mart, its employees and customers, for supporting mothers, daughters, and friends through the funding of OTMH programs that allow women to take that next step to recovery.
Lorelei and Richard Jenkins For more than twenty years, Lorelei and Richard Jenkins have called Oakville home. Grateful to live in a community with a state-of-the-art healthcare facility, they decided to make a generous $250,000 gift to the Hospital in 2017. Richard Jenkins, the Chairman and Managing Director of Black Creek Investment Management, recognizes the importance of giving to his local community hospital and sees the gift as an investment in the future but with the hope of not needing its services.
“We believe in paying it forward and giving to charitable organizations that are financially sound, transparent, and accountable with donor dollars,” said Richard. The couple’s donation helped fund numerous pieces of priority equipment needed in Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital’s medical and surgical departments. In recognition of their generosity, the 6 South inpatient unit will be named in honour of Lorelei and Richard Jenkins and Family.
Jim and Lois McDougall were dedicated community members involved with Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital throughout their lives. In the early 1950s, Lois established her teaching career at Linbrook School in Oakville, known today as St. Mildredâ€™s-Lightbourn School. There, Lois joined her fellow teachers in starting a fundraising committee for the new hospital site being developed on Reynolds Street. Alongside the responsibilities of teaching and being actively involved in their church, Jim and Lois raised seven children. They lived their lives as loving, faith-filled parents and took pride in their big, closeknit family including 19 grandchildren and 26 great-grandchildren. Lois volunteered with the palliative care program at OTMH helping to provide companionship for patients and assistance for families. Her dedication to the unit helped promote her to the head of the palliative care volunteer team. While Lois was helping palliative patients, Jim volunteered his time to gurney patrol at OTMH, helping transport patients throughout the Hospital. Married for 71 years and soulmates until the end, Jim and Lois McDougall passed away in 2017 within 40 days of each other. Their final gift to OTMH was a generous bequest to fund the priority needs of the Hospital and improve the healthcare of our community for years to come. 5
The Lions Club From being a founding supporter of OTMH since 1943, the local Lions Club helped build, equip, and grow OTMH from a 14-bed Lions Temporary Hospital to the state-of-the-art healthcare facility it is today. This past year, their contributions to OTMH reached a new pinnacle thanks to a generous standard grant from the Lions Clubs International Foundation. Led by Pravin Sharma, a member of the Oakville Hospital Foundation development committee, she and the Lions District A-711 rallied the community to support Perspective Marketing’s “Buy a Brick” campaign. The initiative raised more than $47,000 and the LCIF matched that amount to help purchase a ophthalmology ultrasound unit. Hundreds of people in Oakville and beyond supported this campaign, most notably Pravin Sharma, Dr. Bindlish, the Oakville Trafalgar Lions Club, the Burlington Lions Club, and the cabinet of District A-711. In addition, the Oakville Hospital Foundation is grateful for the individuals behind the “Buy a Brick” campaign including Steve Montague, CEO of Perspective Marketing, Caldwell Securities, Cropac Cranes, and D’Orazio Construction. For a minimum donation of $100, donors received a reclaimed brick from the now closed legacy site on Reynolds Street. Thanks to the Lions, the bricks used to build the hospital were put back to work this year to help fund leading-edge medical equipment that will enable the Ophthalmology team at OTMH to provide patients with the best healthcare possible.
For the year ended March 31, 2018 The Oakville Hospital Foundation is conscious of its responsibilities and is accountable to those in the community who place their trust in us. Your support will allow us to address the priority needs of our Hospital â€“ both the immediate purchase of vital equipment and for the equipment needs of tomorrow through endowments and investments.
