Niagara Health Foundation – A New Name and Direction

OneFoundation for Niagara Health System has made a bold step forward, rebranding to Niagara Health Foundation. The new name and a new look reflects the Foundation’s partnership with Niagara Health and the Foundation’s commitment to helping build a healthier Niagara.

Niagara Health Foundation fundraises exclusively for Niagara Health and brings people across the region together for a single purpose – to help our local hospitals and their healthcare teams deliver the best possible healthcare, right here in Niagara.

Niagara Health Foundation helps fund extraordinary healthcare for residents in all Niagara communities at local hospitals. The philanthropic gifts raised from individuals, groups and corporations go directly towards:

  • Purchasing essential medical equipment and cutting-edge technology at all Niagara Health hospital sites;
  • Funding capital development projects, including the construction of new hospitals and upgrading facilities;
  • Supporting special patient care programs and scholarships and bursaries for students and staff studying medical sciences.

Under its new name, Niagara Health Foundation will continue to work with all residents of Niagara to make sure we have the healthcare we need today and in the future.

“Healthcare is continuing to advance. So are we,” says Roger D. Ali, President & CEO of Niagara Health Foundation. “Our new name reflects our role as Niagara Health’s partner in building a healthier Niagara, benefitting patients in every community across the region. With the help of our donors and future supporters, Niagara Health Foundation will help ensure that Niagara Health sites have the tools and services needed to provide extraordinary care, close to home, for Niagara residents.”

Healthcare in Niagara has made strides in recent years, thanks in large part to generous donations from Niagara residents,” says Niagara Health President Suzanne Johnston. “The new name accurately reflects our Mission and strategic direction.  I believe that our Foundation is well positioned to help support Niagara Health today and into the future. Together we can help build a healthier Niagara.”

Niagara Health Foundation is prepared to support Niagara Health as it reshapes the way healthcare is delivered in Niagara, focusing on the highest safety and quality standards for all residents. The Foundation looks forward to working with Niagara Health and the Niagara community to support the construction of the new Niagara Falls site and future redevelopment projects.
