Capital Campaign - Caring Together

BUILDING A HEALTHCARE LEGACY

For nearly 40 years, the Bethesda Foundation has been the vehicle through which community contributions to healthcare in our region have been raised. This has resulted in significant enhancements to fulfill specific needs. Your donations will help make these much-needed facilities and services possible. Help us advance health services and infrastructure in our community for generations to come.

USE OF FUNDS

Our objective is to raise $15,000,000. As of May 1, 2019 the Bethesda Foundation has raised $9,600,000. We look to the community to help us raise an additional $5,400,000.

REST HAVEN NURSING
HOME EXPANSION

The Province of Manitoba recently announced that Steinbach would be getting 83 additional personal care home beds through a significant expansion at Rest Haven Nursing Home. The 60 bed facility will more than double to a total of 143 beds.

These additional beds are urgently needed as the wait list for placement is long, and all too often our seniors are having to move far away from family and friends when they need personal care home support.

The current 60 bed facility will more
than double to a total of 143 beds

HOSPICE CARE FACILITY

Bethesda Foundation has a vision to provide enhanced palliative care services to Steinbach and area. We want to create a peaceful, home-like environment, with private rooms for patient dignity, and space for families to gather. The population over the age of 75 in Steinbach and area is expected to grow by nearly 25% in the next four years. Some of these residents will be in need of acute or long-term palliative care. This type of care is currently provided by the regional hospital, and we believe using a different mix of staff and volunteers there would be some significant cost savings.

Benefits include:

  • Private rooms for patient dignity
  • Peaceful, comfortable environment
  • Space for family meetings and activities
  • Less costly than hospital stay
  • More acute care hospital beds become available
