10. Why do you need to fund raise? Doesn't the government pay for health care?

While the government provides most of the day-to-day costs of running the hospital, there are never enough funds available for equipment. Last year, almost 1/3 of the equipment purchased by the Hospital was funded through donations.

It is only through the combination of public funds and community donations that our hospital will continue be well-equipped to serve you, your family and your friends when you need it most.
