BMO Donates $360,000 and names one of the new outdoor courtyards.
Cambridge Memorial Hospital Foundation announced today that BMO Bank of Montreal will be donating $360,000 to support the hospital’s new construction project and will be naming one of the new outdoor courtyards once construction is completed at Cambridge Memorial Hospital.
"We are pleased to support the construction project at Cambridge Memorial Hospital and invest in a healthier community for the residents of Cambridge," said Patti Wilson, Regional Vice President, Personal Banking, Cambridge-Guelph Market, BMO Bank of Montreal. "The resources provided by this donation will help improve the quality of life across the community, which is always a priority at BMO."
The Outdoor Courtyard space, which BMO Bank of Montreal will be naming as acknowledgement for its donation to the hospital, will be part of the new patient tower currently under construction. A new hospital wing will be built on the west side of the existing hospital. This new wing will be approximately 240 000 sq. feet in size, which is much larger than the size of a typical big box store. Also, about 150 000 sq. feet of existing space in the B Wing of the hospital will be renovated to meet new hospital standards.
Heidi Balsillie donates $1 million to the Mental Health Program
It was an intimate gathering starting with a few words from a soft spoken Day Hospital client named Heather. Heather described the despair of a few short years ago when there were little mental health resources in our community. She eloquently punctuated this with a message of hope now that she has the support of our caring MH staff. By the end of her moving speech, tears were flowing freely. Heidi Balsillie stood, took a moment to compose herself, then thanked Heather for sharing her story and helping reconfirm her decision to support mental health care at our hospital. Ms. Balsillie went on to express why she felt it was important for people needing care, many of whom still face stigma, to have access to a strong program like ours in the community. On Tuesday, October 20, it was formally announced to the MH team that the Mental Health floor in the new patient tower will be named the Heidi Balsillie Fairmount Foundation Mental Health Program in recognition of her generous gift.

YES! We have started to build a brand new hospital for the residents of Cambridge and North Dumfries. The construction comprises a new wing and complete renovation of the existing patient care wing, which will provide the necessary space for CMH to bring new and expanded clinical services to our community.
In total, the project includes 240,000 square feet of new construction and 150, 000 square feet of renovations to the current B wing. The total cost of the project is valued at about $187 million.
A community component for funding the Cambridge Memorial Hospital Capital Redevelopment Project has been raised by the Region of Waterloo, the City of Cambridge and the community through the One Voice, One Vision campaign. Additional funds to purchase the crucial life-saving technology and equipment that is needed to fill this essential expansion are needed. Please contact the CMH Foundation for more information
