The Kemptville District Hospital Foundation is launching a fundraising campaign to raise $1,000,000 to fund the building of new clinics at the Hospital.

The Clinic Modernization Project is transforming the unused, old, operating suites into a new state-of-the-art patient and physician friendly space.

In addition to 6 new clinics, the project includes a new patient waiting room, a private room for families to gather, a wheelchair accessible washroom and several other suites that are multi-purpose rooms.

"With an increasing need to bring new services (like mental health) to our community, the Hospital needed to upgrade the current clinic space built in the 1960s," says Robert Noseworthy, Chair of the KDH Foundation. "The Hospital is approached by physicians on an ongoing basis wanting to bring new speciality services to Kemptville.  We simply did not have the space to adequately house both patients and physicians.

Support for the project has been growing.  Six donors have so far pledged to fund the family room, the patient waiting room and a COPD Clinic (thanks to proceeds from the Bob Perry Memorial Golf tournament} as well as the endoscopy clinic and recovery room suite.

Our first gift of $100,000 to the project was made by Urbandale Construction.  Thank you to the donors for their generous contribution to this important project for our community.

The first new service to open will be an ophthalmology clinic.
