In 1974, the Dunnville community saw the clear need for a charitable foundation to support our local hospital’s growth and maintenance. The Dunnville Hospital and Healthcare Foundation was established to support the Haldimand War Memorial Hospital – and later, the Edgewater Gardens Long-Term Care Centre – as well as to support healthcare more generally in town.
In 1920, a plot of land on John Street in Dunnville, Ontario was gifted to the Dunnville Women’s Patriotic Society with the intention to start a local hospital. The Haldimand War Memorial Hospital first opened on February 3, 1921; the new hospital had 20 beds, a small nursery, and a small operating room. It even had a portable x-ray machine!
Today, our hospital has grown to have 22 acute care beds, 13 complex care beds, and 2 respite care beds. The hospital is equipped to provide a continual line of care, from emergency room visits to long-term palliative care. With your support, we can continue to offer these, and other services into the future.
Connected to the Haldimand War Memorial Hospital on the banks of the Grand River, Edgewater Gardens Long-Term Care provides high-quality housing and assistance for 64 seniors. Care in Edgewater Gardens is focused on our residents’ rights to independence, personal choice, dignity, and participation in decisions affecting their care.
Without you, we could not support healthcare in Dunnville.
