Burlington Hydro Gives Back to the Community with Donation to Joseph Brant Hospital’s Our New Era Campaign

December 14, 2017

Burlington Hydro is proud to support Joseph Brant Hospital’s Our New Era Campaign with a $25,000 donation that will go towards ongoing redevelopment and expansion priorities at the hospital. The donation is being used as part of continuing renovations to the existing hospital and the construction of the new Michael Lee-Chin & Family Patient Tower. 

“We are very fortunate to operate and do business in such a vibrant and caring community - a community that has come together to support the health needs and critical expansion of Joseph Brant Hospital,” said Gerry Smallegange, Burlington Hydro President and CEO.  “We’re very pleased to give back to our community in this meaningful way, and support cutting edge medical care in the City of Burlington for many years to come.”

Expanding medical, surgical and outpatient services are an important part of the ongoing redevelopment of Joseph Brant Hospital.  Burlington Hydro is being recognized for its gift with a plaque at one of the new Ambulatory Care Centre’s Medical/Surgical Exam Rooms.

”We are thankful that Burlington Hydro has supported the building project underway at Joseph Brant Hospital,” said Anissa Hilborn, Joseph Brant Hospital Foundation President. “The support from our community is helping to transform the care available closer to home and is making a difference for our patients and our caregivers every single day.”

Burlington Hydro is committed to growing and conducting its business in ways that consistently deliver value and provide benefit to the community. It’s a progressive company with strong community ties that strives to help keep Burlington a great place to live, work and do business. Joseph Brant Hospital’s state-of-the-art redevelopment is an important part of what makes Burlington a great place to call home.

Burlington Hydro will mark the occasion with an official photo op when the Ambulatory Care exam room is opened and designated in 2018.

The redevelopment and expansion project to build the new hospital has been undertaken in two phases. Phase One was the construction of the Halton McMaster Family Health Centre, hospital administration and new parking facility. Phase Two included the Michael Lee-Chin & Family Patient Tower which opened in August 2017 and the ongoing rrenovations to the existing hospital which are continuing through 2018.
