Our Hospital Auxiliaries

HHHS Haliburton Hospital Auxiliary

Celebrating 45 years of service to our community! Haliburton Hospital Auxiliary was created in 1971 and with the support of our community has been able to purchase over $1.3 million dollars worth of medical and non-medical items for our hospital.

Over the years, volunteers have conducted fund-raising events to provide much needed equipment (medical and non-medical)  for the Acute Care, Emergency and Long-Term Care Departments. These fundraising efforts help to ensure modern, up-to-date equipment is available to provide the best possible care to residents and patients.

The Gift Shop, located by the main doors, opened in 2000. The shop carries many gifts, clothing items, and useful patient/resident items.  Gift shop hours are Monday to Friday 11:30 to 4:00.

Annual Events:

Geranium Sales in May, The Anniversary Tea Auction in June, Tag Day in July, International Night in October, Quilt Raffle, Christmas ornament sales.  Our now famous Wheelbarrow of Wine raffle tickets are on sale starting in May. The Auxiliary takes part in the Farmers Market, Midnight Madness, Colourfest and holds an Open House and Bake sale in December where the winner of the Wheelbarrow of Wine will be announced.
