The Our New Era Campaign, in support of the redevelopment and expansion project at Joseph Brant Hospital has been an outstanding success, raising a grand total of $65,189,783 - more than $5 Million more than the original $60 Million goal.
This incredible amount represents the largest amount raised in the history of Burlington, and an incredible testament to the support for our hospital.
"The new Joseph Brant Hospital is a reality today thanks to the support of our entire community coming together to make big things happen," said Anissa Hilborn, President of the Joseph Brant Hospital Foundation. "Thank you to each and every donor who supported our hospital and will have an incredible impact for generations to come."
The campaign celebration also marked the successful end of the Pasquale & Anita Paletta Family Match Challenge, which was launched two years ago. The Paletta Family pledged to match all donations up to $5 Million to raise the final $10 Million of the campaign.
The match inspired another anonymous donor to come forward and match all donations beyond the $5 Million.
The redevelopment and expansion of Joseph Brant Hospital includes the Halton McMaster Family Health Centre and parking garage, the new Michael Lee-Chin & Family Patient Tower and renovations to the original patient tower, which will be complete this fall.
