February Appeal

The following is an excerpt from our February Appeal letter. Follow this link to read the full letter.

At Cambridge Memorial Hospital (CMH), we strive each and every day to care for one another. CMH patients/families, volunteers, staff, and donors, make me feel a profound sense of gratitude. This gratitude is a reflection of our shared commitment to Cambridge Memorial Hospital.

CMH holds a special place in my heart, not just as a place of healing but as part of my personal history.

My mother passed away last year, after a life well lived. In a real sense CMH was my mother’s Hospital. She spent her formative years in the Community, and her experiences with the Hospital have left a lasting imprint. Her connection to CMH has always had a powerful influence on me.

To me, CMH represents a place where her values of care and compassion are deeply rooted. My mother’s spirit and teachings remind me daily of our goal to provide compassionate, high-quality healthcare, just as it was provided to her and our Community in those early days.

Your generous support is instrumental in funding vital equipment. While donors are not directly present in a surgical suite or by the bedside, you are crucial to the services we provide each day.

Healthcare can never be perfect, but each day we grow and achieve great things caring for thousands of people every year – be it a hip replacement, an emergency visit, or the joy of a newborn.

At CMH life unfolds every day with all its challenges and triumphs. Described to me as a place of first hellos and last goodbyes, our Hospital is truly an integral part of our lives.

Looking forward, CMH is poised for significant advancements. Completing Wing B construction is a major step in enhancing our ability to serve the Community with advanced facilities. This isn’t just growth in size. It’s about creating a more accessible, inclusive, comprehensive, and safer healthcare environment.

With this in mind, I encourage you to renew your support with a generous gift. Your commitment enables us to keep pace with these changes and continue to provide exceptional care.

In heartfelt appreciation for your continued partnership, I thank you. Together, we will keep building a community-centred healthcare system that stands ready for whatever the future holds.

Warm regards,

Patrick Gaskin
President and CEO, Cambridge Memorial Hospital
