Our Foundation’s History

Our Foundation's History

The Arnprior Regional Health Foundation was founded in 2005 with a commitment to raise funds annually in support of the Arnprior & District Memorial Hospital, The Grove Nursing Home and the Arnprior Regional Health community programs’ equipment needs, staff education and facility upgrades.

How we’re helping bring care close to home

Leading-edge equipment for early screening, diagnosis and treatment


Our community support has allowed us to purchase leading-edge equipment, including:
- A digital mammogram machine that detects abnormalities more easily
- portable electrocardiogram machines that assess heart function
- defibrillators for life-saving interventions

Medical equipment is not covered by government funding and these investments in state-of-the-art technologies for the best screening, diagnostics and treatment wouldn’t be possible without the generosity of our donors.

As part of our $5-million Come Home to Great Care Campaign, we are concurrently raising $1 million dedicated to purchasing new leading-edge equipment.

Advancing best practice education for our healthcare team

Thanks to generous donations, the Foundation invests in the professional development of the Arnprior Regional Health (ARH) staff to ensure their knowledge and training follows best practices.

Annually, up to $10,000 is available for professional development opportunities for staff through an application process and determined by ARH Leadership.

Building a new Grove to transform the lives of residents

The Come Home to Great Care Campaign is in the final push to reach the $4-million fundraising goal in support of the Grove redevelopment project.
