Submitted to Just Sayin' Caledon

Headwaters Health Care Foundation is enthusiastically celebrating an incredibly generous gift from Alan McFadyen & Patricia Tufman. Alan & Patricia, Caledon residents, recognize the importance in ensuring exceptional health care close to home. That is why they have donated $500,000 to Smart Headwaters, the campaign to bring MRI and more to our local hospital.

“We are so grateful to Alan & Patricia for their extreme generosity,” said K.C. Carruthers, CEO of Headwaters Health Care Foundation. He went on to add, “This pledge has allowed us to make incredible progress on Smart Headwaters, bringing the total raised to over $12 million. With this campaign we will bring the first ever MRI machine to Dufferin-Caledon, which will be a game changer for the diagnosis and treatment of our parents. I am sure this latest gift will continue to drive momentum towards our $18 million goal.”

“We are happy to be able to donate to the hospital to help improve parent care.  Community support is fundamental in the hospital’s ability to care for the community it serves. Hopefully our gift will inspire others to consider donating to propel Headwaters Health Care Foundation even closer to their $18 million goal,” said Alan McFadyen.
