South Bruce Grey Health Centre unveiled upgrades to the Emergency Department at its Kincardine site, made possible through its ongoing partnership with Bruce Power.

These upgrades, funded by Bruce Power, have been one of the many additions Bruce Power and the Municipality of Kincardine have made over the past year to improve emergency preparedness in the region, while also improving patient care.

In 2015, Bruce Power donated $75,000 to South Bruce Grey Health Centre (SBGHC) to purchase new equipment, develop procedures and enhance training for Kincardine’s emergency room. This was made as part of the company’s ongoing efforts to enhance emergency preparedness, while also supporting local health care.

"We are very appreciative of the continued support we receive from Bruce Power," says Paul Rosebush, President and CEO. "We now have a state-of-the-art emergency treatment room that we can use as a training facility for both of our organizations, which is an essential resource in our community. This initiative puts us at the forefront of disaster response readiness in the province."

South Bruce Grey Health Centre and Bruce Power have been working collaboratively on emergency preparedness enhancements since 2011, developing procedures and training staff from both organizations to be prepared for any emergency.
