About the Georgetown Hospital Foundation and Halton Healthcare Services

The Georgetown Hospital (GH) is one of the hospital sites of the Halton Healthcare Services Corporation and is an integral part of the rapidly changing and growing community.  GH serves the Town of Halton Hills with a population of over 59,000.  Together with Milton District Hospital and Oakville-Trafalgar Memorial Hospital, Halton Healthcare provides quality, compassionate healthcare services to more than 325,000 residents ensuring a consistent, coordinated approach to care through the provision of primary, secondary and some tertiary healthcare services. 

Led by a volunteer Board of Directors, the Georgetown Hospital Foundation (GHF) is dedicated to ensuring that the GH is equipped to offer top-quality, compassionate healthcare today and into the future.  With the help and support of valued volunteers, citizens and local businesses, the GHF raises funds for much needed equipment and hospital upgrades.  The Foundation recently concluded its biggest fundraising campaign in the hospital’s history surpassing its $6.5 million dollar goal in a three year period. The funds raised supported the recent 14,000 sq. ft. expansion of the Emergency Department and the renovation to Diagnostic Imaging Department to accommodate the hospital’s first CT Scanner.
