What do we do at Georgetown Hospital? We provide 24-hour emergency care, we diagnose and treat cancer, heart disease, and other serious illnesses. We perform thousands of surgical procedures. We welcome hundreds of newborns every year at our level 1 Nursery. We provide clinics and treatment for COPD, diabetes, physiotherapy and asthma. We provide thousands of screening tests for cancer and other diseases. And we do much, much more to provide the best healthcare for the people of Halton Hills.
The Georgetown Hospital Foundation was originally incorporated in 1977 to help the Hospital meet steadily increasing demands on its resources from a growing Halton Hills population. In 2003 the Foundation merged with the Etobicoke and Peel Memorial Hospital Foundations to become The William Osler Health Centre Foundation.
In 2005, Georgetown Hospital joined Halton Healthcare, working alongside Milton District Hospital and Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital. A new Georgetown Hospital Foundation was incorporated in November, 2005 and the Foundation Office reopened in August, 2006.
Today, Georgetown Hospital is once again supported by an independent, community-based Foundation.
