About University Hospitals Kingston Foundation:

Founded in 2005, University Hospitals Kingston Foundation (UHKF) raises funds for patient care, equipment, research and teaching at Kingston Health Sciences Centre and Providence Care Hospital. In April 2017, Kingston General Hospital and Hotel Dieu Hospital came together to form Kingston Health Sciences Centre. UHKF reports that since 2009, there has been a 50% increase in mental health visits to the emergency department. UHKF reports that both hospital centers provided specialized care to over 500k people in F2018.

UHKF grants to its associated hospitals so the best patient care can be provided to the hospitals' clients. In F2018, UHKF reports that over 100 new pieces of equipment were purchased including defibrillators, beds, ultrasound machines, scopes, chairs and exam tables. Moreover, on April 23, 2017 the new Providence Care Hospital was completed hosting 273 patient beds.

Kingston General Hospital reports that it serves over 60,000 people in its emergency department each year, performs thousands of surgical procedures annually, and sees more than 180,000 ambulatory and outpatient visits at the cancer Centre of Southeastern Ontario site each year. In addition, Providence Care serves patients with complex, rehabilitation, geriatric and mental healthcare needs at two sites – Providence Care Hospital and Providence Manor, in addition to 22 community sites. In 2017, Providence Care provided hospital care to over 1,200 inpatients and 25,000 outpatients. Its 22 community programs across the region had over 87,000 visits and its long-term care home, Providence Manor, provided care for 243 residents.

In F2018, University Hospitals Kingston Foundation granted $3.4m to Kingston Health Sciences Centre and $1.0m to Providence Care. In F2018, UHKF granted $800k to research, which is reportedly the largest amount in its history. In addition, in F2018 the William J. Henderson Centre was opened for patient-oriented research.
