What is UHKF?
The University Hospitals Kingston Foundation – supports Kingston Health Sciences Centre and Providence Care. They inspire generosity for the health of families in the Kingston region and beyond.
What are we Stream-A-Thon-ing for?
UHKF raises funds for healthcare facilities, programs, equipment, education and research that benefit the 500,000 people living in Kingston, southeastern Ontario, and beyond.
From now until Thursday, June 25th we’re asking for your help to raise donations! By donating to areas of greatest priority, the Kingston Health Sciences Centre and Providence Care have the ability facilitate funding to the areas that need it the most such as upgrades to equipment or updating current facilities so we can provide 21st century care.
Why is fundraising so important?
- There is a misconception that healthcare is 100% funded by the government. The reality is, that heath care costs have never been fully covered by Government funding.
- There has always been and expectation that the local community will cover a portion of the costs of capital.
- The Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care’s current policy for hospital capital cost sharing is that the ministry will provide 90% funding for eligible construction/capital costs and that hospitals are responsible for costs associated with new furnishings and equipment and for replacement equipment.
- UHKF relies on donations from the community to help ensure that we have the best care possible where and when we need it most. Without the generosity of our community we would not be able to provide the same level of care.
But we can’t do it alone… donate today!
