My greatest takeaway from this is how passionate the board and especially the staff were towards bettering health in the Midwest. It was not just a job to them but their passion.”
Starting in 1983, the Foundation has raised money to improve the quality of healthcare in Lloydminster, and around the region, for nearly 40 years. With time and generous donors, the foundation has grown into a community gem and has helped our community healthcare become what it is today.
On November 23, 1983, the Lloydminster Region Health Foundation, known at the time as the Lloydminster Hospital Foundation was incorporated. The first goal was set in 1984 for the build of the new community hospital. The one million dollar campaign was setup to use funds to furnish and equip the new hospital which officially opened in 1988.
Our operations are efficient and transparent in order to maximize the community benefit from each donation. We take a donor-centered approach, and communicate regularly with donors about the impact of their gifts.

From the Board
Since opening in 1983, the Lloydminster Region Health Foundation has donated over $30 million to local healthcare initiatives in the community. This would not be possible without the generous support of many donors and sponsors. Our organization is astounded by the financial support we receive year after year for our many projects and initiatives; we appreciate the commitment from all donors and sponsors in enhancing healthcare in our community.
