Caledon residents donate $500,000 to Headwaters Health Care Foundation

A generous donation was recently made by two Caledon residents.

On December 1, the Headwaters Health Care Foundation announced that Alan McFadyen and Patricia Tufman had donated $500,000 to the Smart Headwaters campaign.

The campaign aims to raise $18 million to bring an MRI machine and more to the Headwaters Health Care Centre — the MRI machine would be a first in Dufferin-Caledon.

McFadyen and Tufman’s gift brings the amount raised through the Smart Headwaters campaign so far to over $12 million.

K.C. Carruthers, CEO of the Headwaters Health Care Foundation, said the Foundation is so grateful for McFadyen and Tufman’s generosity.

“This pledge has allowed us to make incredible progress on Smart Headwaters… with

this campaign we will bring the first-ever MRI machine to Dufferin-Caledon, which will be a

game changer for the diagnosis and treatment of our patients,” he said. “I am sure this latest gift will continue to drive momentum towards our $18 million goal.”

McFadyen said he and Tufman are happy to have been able to donate to the Headwaters Health Care Centre to help improve patient care.

“Community support is fundamental in the hospital’s ability to care for the community it serves,” he said. “Hopefully our gift will inspire others to consider donating to propel Headwaters Health Care Foundation even closer to their $18 million goal.”
