Gifts from the Heart
The Support From Our Community
We are incredibly grateful for our community's support throughout the year and providing non-monetary gifts to our hospital ensures that our care providers can enhance our patient's experience.
As the COVID-19 situation continues to evolve, so do our health and safety measures to keep our patients and staff safe.
The generosity of our community has always been a special part of the holiday's at Grand River Hospital and we thank you for your understanding and appreciate your continued support this holiday season!
Ways to Support
