Amid the emotional and uncertain journey of the COVID-19 crisis, your generous contribution to the Region Ready fund made a difference. Because of you, the hospitals of Waterloo Region worked together to mobilize, protect and provide care for you and your neighbours.

In the early days, your donations eased the fears of frontline staff with the provision of PPE. They permitted modification of Emergency departments and hospital spaces to provide isolation areas for COVID-19 testing, diagnosis, and the compassionate care for those who were unable to return home.

As capacity and clarity allowed, donated funds aided the prudent expansion of COVID-19 testing through the implementation of innovative delivery and off-site locations.

And throughout this journey, the support of the community has enabled partnership with local suppliers to amass the pandemic supplies at all three regional hospitals that are needed to resume services.

Because of your support and personal compliance with public health guidelines, together we were Region Ready.

To view some the impact made by your incredible generosity please visit our Covid-19 impact page.

In the months to come the Region's Hospitals will be looking at other opportunities for collaboration. We look forward to sharing these plans and inviting you to invest in the health of Waterloo Region.

To make a donation personally to Region Ready by connecting with someone please contact our CEO Paul McIntyre Royston at 519-504-4535 or

All gifts will be tax receipted by Grand River Hospital Foundation with the 3 CEO's of the hospitals directing to support the highest priority needs of the health of the Region.
