Bruce Power has donated $100,000 to the new Teeswater Medical Centre, furthering its commitment to local health care initiatives.
The donation brings the Teeswater Medical Centre over the $2 million mark on its total fundraising goal of $2.6 million. The initiative will bring a modern, fully accessible clinic to the town that includes a physician, a pharmacy, and other health care professionals.
“This donation is another step forward in giving our residents access to improved medical facilities and services,” said Paul Cronin, co-chair of the Teeswater Medical Centre Building Committee. “We are making this modern facility a reality thanks to the efforts of our volunteers, local residents, the municipality and our corporate sponsors such as Bruce Power.”
The committee is aiming to begin renovations to the existing doctors’ office in the spring, with a target completion of December 2023, and it is actively participating in the recruitment of health care professionals.
“We are proud to support the Teeswater Medical Centre and its committee’s goal of providing a new, state-of-the art facility that will include enhanced access to medical care,” said Mike Rencheck, Bruce Power’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “As a leading clean energy provider for the province, we believe that our rural communities, the people who live there, and health care professionals working here deserve top-notch care and advanced medical facilities.”
As part of its commitment to supporting local health care, Bruce Power and its supplier partners have committed $3.65 million to local hospital foundations and medical clinics across the region since 2019. This supports local efforts to provide the latest equipment and services, while recognizing the important work and services provided by our hospitals and clinics to residents and visitors.
