The Woodbine Entertainment Group (WEG) has announced its support of the Milton District Hospital’s (MDH) expansion project with the donation of $100,000 to the MDH Foundation’s Our Home Our Hospital Campaign, in a special celebration with community members at Mohawk Racetrack on June 27.

WEG’s $100,000 gift to the MDH Foundation’s capital campaign will be matched by the Orlando Corporation through a matching challenge of up to $5 million.

“The MDH continues to have a significant impact and importance on the many people who depend on the hospital,” said Helen Vatistas, an executive director with MDHF. “Everyone in the area and surrounding communities is influenced by the hospital and the services it offers. Through the generosity, kindness and longtime support of organizations like WEG, we will be able to provide even more critical services to people in need.”

To recognize WEG’s support in the expansion of the Milton District Hospital, the Fracture Room, part of the hospital’s Emergency Department, will be named, ‘Woodbine Entertainment Group.’

“We are extremely proud to support both the MDH and the community in this critical expansion of the hospital,” said Jim Lawson, WEG’s chief executive officer. “Through our WEG Cares program, we are able to leverage the power of horse racing to assist and work within the communities in which we operate to create better places to live, learn and gather together.”

The Milton District Hospital expansion will add 330,000 square feet of space to the existing 125,000 square foot hospital. The project will address the needs of all with a focus on meeting the needs of those living in Milton, the fastest-growing community in Canada.

Project highlights include the expansion of emergency and surgical services, medical/surgical inpatient units, critical care, maternal newborn and diagnostic imaging and support services, overall capacity increase from 63 to 129 inpatient beds, and the addition of the hospital’s first Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) machine.
