Milton District Hospital Foundation
Milton District Hospital Foundation (MDHF) works to ensure that our hospital has the necessary resources to meet the healthcare needs of our community. Since the government does not provide funding for the purchase of new or replacement medical equipment or technology, MDHF raises funds to support this need.
The population of Milton and the surrounding area is continuing to grow quickly. This means that our hospital needs more equipment and technology. But it’s not just about more people in our community and more patients in our hospital. The fact is that our physicians are seeing patients with more health acuity, which means that they require more intensive, specialized and exceptional care.
In the last year alone, inpatient surgeries at Milton District Hospital increased by 16%, the number of days that hospital beds were occupied by patients increased by 13%, and the number of ultrasounds performed increased by 11%. This escalates our need for equipment and it means that our current equipment must be replaced more frequently.
Our hospital depends on the support of the people living in our community to ensure that our front-line healthcare workers are able to provide high quality care to every patient who walks through our doors.
