The Haldimand War Memorial Hospital (HWMH) will soon be home to an upgraded X-Ray suite thanks in large part to a $215,000 legacy donation from the estate of former nurse Alice ‘Marie’ Richard. The donation marks the second largest one given to the Foundation in the last ten years.
“Marie Richard was a long-time generous donor to Dunnville Hospital and Healthcare Foundation (DHHF),” said Rachel Williams, Finance, Administration & Donor Relations Specialist for the Foundation. “This gift, in addition to the $75,000 she donated to the ‘Every Moment Counts’ campaign for the new Emergency Department at HWMH, was a result of her strong belief in giving to causes she was passionate about. I had the absolute pleasure of meeting with Marie many times and she truly believed in the importance of supporting healthcare in our community.”
