Hastings County donation gives major boost to advanced diagnostics at BGH

Representatives of the Belleville General Hospital Foundation were thrilled this week when Councilors at the county’s Finance, Property and Personnel meeting presented a cheque for $500,000 as a gift towards the Foundation’s ‘Be Well’ campaign.
With the hospital acting as a center of important regional services to more than 160,000 people from Bancroft to Picton, Brighton to Nappanee, the generous support brings a welcomed boost to diagnostic services available at the hospital.
Given as a means to replace aging equipment the funds will play an important role in equipment that supports oncology services. Belleville General Hospital is a level three cancer center, with 3 oncologists that support the diagnosis and treatment of patients from across the entire Quinte Health Care catchment.
BGHF Executive Director Steve Cook said, ‘with one in three Canadians now diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime, this leadership level gift ensures we can continue to move in line with advancing equipment technology and provide the best care for patients right across the region.’
Belleville General Hospital provides over 93,000 diagnostic exams annually, a figure likely to rise with population migration to the region. In the past couple of the years the Belleville General Hospital Foundation has focused heavily on soliciting funds for its regional cancer clinic campaigns, alongside Nuclear Medicine Camera project and future fracture clinic expansion plans.
On behalf of the BGH Board, incoming Chair Dr Tracey Bray expressed thanks to Hastings County representatives and acknowledged the hard work of the foundation to address the growing equipment replacement needs at the Belleville General Hospital.
