Why Give

Every dollar you donate to the North Bay Regional Health Centre Foundation is helping provide exceptional healthcare close to home, for patients and family in our region. Thank you.

Our community, technology and the system and world in which we operate are changing. By donating to NBRHC Foundation, you are supporting excellence in patient care and the expansion of programs and services at your local hospital.

You can designate your donation to a specific area or department at your hospital, or you can help fund the highest priority needs for our community’s healthcare.

Hi there! I’m Nat Brunette.

If you’re from North Bay, you may recognize my name. Since 1987, I have lived in North Bay, working as a teacher and guidance counsellor while volunteering at many local community organizations.

“I am so grateful for the care I received at North Bay Regional Health Centre. This is why I donate; to say thank you and help purchase advanced medical equipment to care for future patients like me.”

Emmette & Elva Mae Busch

“Community was really important to both of us, which is why we included charity in our Will,” says Emmette. “I know that when I’m gone, Elva Mae’s memory will live on helping our community and hospital.”

Emmette has included three of his and Elva Mae’s favourite charities in his Will.

Dr. Pawan Kumar

“I have had the privilege of being a member of the surgical team at NBRHC for eight years. My colleagues and I perform a variety of surgical procedures aimed to improve the quality of life of patients. “

Thanks to your generosity and our community, our hospital is a leader in surgical techniques. For more than 22 years, we’ve been performing basic and advanced laparoscopic procedures (including the first tele-robotic surgery in 2003). Laparoscopic surgery is a form of minimally invasive surgery (MIS).

Demographics of our Region

More than one in five people in the Nipissing District is over age 65 and at increased risk of chronic and complex health concerns. North Bay is also home to a large proportion of low‐income earners who struggle with access to housing, healthy food and reliable transportation. This, along with high rates of obesity and physical inactivity, dramatically increase the likelihood that more of our loved ones and neighbours will experience a serious physical and/or mental health crisis.
