How You Can Help

Area residents depend on the Health Authority to provide the best medical care possible, and your support helps the hospital and the clinics to be ready when helps is needed.

Area Health Authority receives support from a variety of governments, government departments and agencies, but healthcare in most of Canada is under-funded, so more money is needed.
