CWB Group to donate $250,000 to Hospital Expansion

March 7, 2016

MILTON - Milton District Hospital Foundation is pleased to announce a major gift of $250,000 from CWB Group in support of Our Home, Our Hospital- the campaign to expand Milton District Hospital.

This generous donation from CWB Group will help fund equipment purchases needed in the expansion and will support the Rapid Assessment/Fast Track Unit in the new and expanded Emergency Department at Milton District Hospital. The new modern emergency department, often the patient’s first point of entry to the hospital, will triple in size and include a new triage process and electronic patient tracking system to manage each patient’s records from the moment they arrive.

“CWB Group is proud to support the expansion of the Milton District Hospital," said Doug Luciani, President and CEO, CWB Group. "Our employees live and work in this community and we’re honored to be a part of this initiative to change patient care history in Milton.”

The Our Home, Our Hospital Capital Campaign is the most ambitious campaign the Milton District Hospital Foundation has undertaken. CWB’s substantial donation is crucial to the construction of the Hospital expansion as 100% of the equipment costs will be funded through the generosity of the Milton community.

“This significant investment will help ensure the health and wellbeing of Milton families, friends, neighbors and CWB Group employees who are vital to our community. Our inclusion among their leading philanthropic ventures is something for which we are deeply grateful,” said

Brian Penman, Board Chair of the Milton District Hospital Foundation. “Contributions from corporations in the community, such as CWB Group, are vital to the success of the project.”
