|ABOUT SUNDRE FUTURES
The Sundre Hospital Futures Committee was originally designed as a Physician Recruitment and Retention committee. It didn't take long for them to realize there was also a need for providing equipment to improve patient care services. Besides being committed to attracting and retaining health professionals and quality facilities in the community of Sundre, the group has funded several different projects in its relatively short existence.
PARTNERS WITH WETASKIWIN
We are honoured to have partnered with the Wetaskiwin Hospital Foundation. The Wetaskiwin Foundation is an historic board. When the David Thompson Health Trust folded, several hospital groups either joined with an existing foundation, or formed their own. Sundre, Olds and Rimbey chose to join with Wetaskiwin. As such, the Wetaskiwin Foundation looks after all our receipting, handles audits, and reporting to the government through health funding grants.
This experienced group ensures that all donations
made to Sundre Hospital Futures STAY IN SUNDRE!
The Sundre Hospital Futures also offers two $1,000 scholarships each year.
- REGISTERED NURSE SCHOLARSHIP
The Joanne Overguard Memorial Scholarship is created and funded by the Overguard family. It helps financially support a Registered Nursing student from the Sundre area. One $1,000 award will be presented each calendar year at the Sundre Hospital Future's Committee Gala by Sundre Health Professional Attraction and Retention Committee (SHPARC) representatives.
