Brock Community Health Centre Announces Capital Campaign Cabinet

In preparation for the construction of Brock CHC’s new building, Brock CHC has recruited the Capital Campaign Cabinet, a group of strong community leaders who will be the driving force behind the fundraising efforts for the capital project.

Composed of representatives from the Brock CHC Board of Directors and senior volunteer leadership representatives from the community, this group of passionate volunteers will serve as the advisory, planning and managing body of the campaign.  The Cabinet will function actively throughout the campaign to support Brock CHC in their efforts to achieve the campaign objectives and financial goals.

Members of the Cabinet include:

Terri Donovan
Dr. Pamela Goodwin
John Grant
Carol Metcalfe
Peter Prust
Pat Shaw
Ted Smith
Sandra Wickett

“The Board of Directors of the Brock Community Health Centre is very appreciative of the commitment of these community leaders to support our fundraising efforts”, stated Terri Donovan, Chair of the Brock CHC Fundraising Committee.  “They share a collective vision for a new building that will have a profound impact on the health and wellness of our community.”

“We are excited to be laying the groundwork for the capital campaign and moving forward in the process of finally establishing a permanent home for Brock CHC that will continue to serve the residents of Brock Township and the surrounding area as it has done for the past ten years,” stated Brock CHC Board of Directors Chair, Ted Smith.

Brock CHC Executive Director Janet McPherson added:  “This in an exciting time as Brock CHC continues to grow its programs and services.  We are looking forward to moving ahead with the capital project with the support and commitment of our community leaders.”

Brock CHC’s capital project will see construction of a 21,000-square-foot health care facility for the residents of Brock Township and surrounding areas.  The new centre will accommodate organizational programs and services.  It will also provide a community health hub for Durham’s northern communities, increasing access to allied health care services and community organizations.

The facility – to be located at 39 Cameron Street West in Cannington – will be constructed on land currently owned by Brock CHC.  Construction of the building is anticipated to take approximately 24 months.

While the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care (MOHLTC) Health Capital Investment Branch is funding the majority of the building costs (estimated at $9.7 million dollars), Brock CHC is responsible for the non-shared costs of the project, currently estimated at $450,000.  Brock Community Health Centre has secured The Regional Municipality of Durham’s support and financial contribution of 25 per cent of the community component of the capital project, approximately $100,000 towards Brock CHC’s capital project.
