The North Bay Regional Health Centre’s mission is to provide compassionate, quality, patient-focused care to the people of North Bay and district. The Hospital has provided excellent health care for almost 100 years. As a district referral centre, communities from a vast area rely on the Hospital for more specialized services. North Bay Regional Health Centre is a national and provincial leader in a number of its medical services and initiatives. To maintain this advanced level of care, the Hospital must rely more and more on the generous financial help from our friends in the community. Increased demand for our services and rapidly changing medical technology place enormous pressures on our Hospital’s financial resources.
Foundations play a critical role in the operation of hospitals, providing support to ensure communities have access to more advanced levels of care. All Ontario Hospitals have Foundations and some have more than a fifty-year history with their health centre. The North Bay Regional Health Centre Foundation was founded in 1999, a relatively young lifespan in the larger picture. Under its former name, the North Bay and District Hospital Foundation initiated the Caring for Generations campaign to raise the community’s share for the building of the new North Bay Regional Health Centre.
