Doctor Can See You Now picture

The Chapleau General Hospital Foundation is pleased to announce a $60,000 donation from an anonymous donor through the Sybil Anne Brake Fund of the Ottawa Community Foundation.

The donor was inspired to contribute to health care in the Chapleau area after watching the TVO documentary The Doctor Can See You Now, featuring Dr. Doris Mitchell.

The documentary explores Dr. Mitchell's journey to becoming a doctor through her studies at the Northern Ontario School of Medicine, what it was like coming back to her home community to work, and the challenges faced by rural, northern health care providers.

The Caring Project

Furniture

The local effort to replace furniture for Chapleau's long-term care residents is now complete.

The Chapleau General Hospital Foundation launched The Caring Project in December 2016 and successfully refurnished all 25 rooms at the Bignucolo Residence over the subsequent three years. Each room received a new low bed, mattress, dresser, wardrobe, and chair for our friends, neighbours, and family members in long-term care to enjoy.

We were able to reach our goal with thanks to United Way, various raffles, a yard sale, the Golf Classic, our first Oktoberfest in 2019, as well as many generous donations by community members.

The cost to replace the furniture in an entire suite is $7,100. Anyone who donated the full amount for a suite will have the room renamed in their honour. Donors will also be recognized in the main lobby of the Chapleau General Hospital on the Donor Recognition Wall. The Foundation is grateful for the community's ongoing support over the course of The Caring Project campaign.
