Marathon LTC Donor Package

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's)

This $1 million campaign has been launched to support the development of the North of Superior Healthcare Group's (NOSH) new 14-bed Long-Term Care (LTC) addition to the Wilson Memorial General Hospital site in Marathon, ON.

Ontario's long-term care system has become strained, putting additional pressure on the province's health care system. Working within budget constraints, limited government funding, fostering sustainability and responding to the healthcare needs of our diversifying communities poses a real challenge for our rural hospital site. Locally, this has resulted in relocation away from home, placement on long waitlists, or the use of alternate care beds.

This $5.1 million-dollar project will decrease the occupancy challenge currently experienced, as well as allow families to stay closer to home and have access to the health care they need.

The total cost of the LTC development project is estimated to be $5.1 million. $4.1 million will be provided by the Province of Ontario’s 2021 Long-Term Care Home Development Program with an additional $1 million being raised through the Families Closer to Home Campaign.

Construction of the new LTC has yet to be determined. However, we are hopeful to receive an approval to construct by the spring of 2023.

This Campaign is made possible because of the generosity of our community. Donations are gratefully welcomed from individuals, families, businesses, financial institutions, charitable foundations, service clubs, the general community, and members of the NOSH group (medical staff, board members, employees, and volunteers). Our campaign lead is available to speak with you about the ways to give that best meet individual circumstances and giving objectives.
