Our History

In 1996 two hospital foundations existed in Sudbury: the Laurentian Hospital Foundation and the Sudbury Memorial Hospital Foundation. In 1998, they merged together to form the Sudbury Regional Hospital Foundation (SRHF).

Over the years the SRHF raised funds for much needed medical equipment for the hospital such as stretchers, a catheterization lab, diagnostic equipment and critical care beds. The Foundation also raised funds for the construction of our one-site hospital in cooperation with the Northern Cancer Foundation through the Heart & Soul capital campaign.

On November 1, 2011 the Sudbury Regional Hospital officially changed its name to Health Sciences North.  As its fundraising partner, the Sudbury Regional Hospital Foundation changed its name to Health Sciences North Foundation.
