The Drumheller Area Health Foundation seeks and administrates funds for the purchase of equipment and the enhancement of existing programs relating to health care in our area, not funded by Alberta Health Care. The Foundation serves the greater Town of Drumheller, Alberta and the surrounding area including Kneeland County, Starland County, and Wheatland County with board representatives from these areas.
The Board of Directors meets monthly and reviews requests for funding the various medical units associated with the Drumheller Health Centre. Our areas of interest include 'Enhancing the Patient Experience', 'Learning Advantage', 'Leading Through Innovations' and 'Living Well Staying Well' programs.
The lion's share of funding is raised from individuals, organizations, businesses and corporations. We depend on our constituents for the continued success of our fundraising. We are a non-profit charitable organization governed by the Societies Act of Alberta and registered through Revenue Canada's Registered Charities, BN# 89095 0041 RR 0001. Donations are recognized and receipted as such.
Our incorporation was March 22, 1994 and since then we've been able to facilitate improvements to the care of Albertans by raising funds and purchasing a CT Scan, ultrasound equipment, ambulances and associated equipment, cardiac monitoring equipment, specialized operating room equipment, emergency room equipment, 2 Healing Gardens, palliative care equipment, equipment for the Continuing Care unit, care enhancements and equipment for the Community Cancer Centre, lab equipment and much more. Thank you for your interest in our organization.
