FLATO Developments announces a $1 million gift to South East Grey Community Health Centre
FLATO Developments announced a $1 million gift to South East Grey Community Health Centre (SEGCHC), a non-profit organization providing inter-disciplinary primary health care services and health promotion programs to the residents of Grey County, Ontario.
According to the Ontario-based community builder, the donation will support the work of the SEGCHC and specifically, the establishment of a new healthcare clinic in Dundalk. The 14,000-15,000 square foot facility will provide primary care, mental health, social and home care services to residents of Grey and Bruce Counties.
“Together with FLATO and SEGCHC, we share a common objective: to bring better care to our people and communities. With the establishment of the new clinic we’re expanding access to healthcare in Dundalk in the longer term, to provide our residents with the care they need, when they need it,” said John Woodbury, Mayor of Township of Southgate.
“We’re happy to partner with FLATO Developments to build a healthier Grey County,” said Allan Madden, Chief Executive Officer, South East Grey Community Health Centre. “The COVID-19 pandemic has brought to light the extraordinary pressures on the healthcare system. With the establishment of the new clinic, we are doing our part towards stronger patient care in our community in the future.”
This donation follows FLATO’s previous charitable initiatives in southern Ontario communities. Most recently, the builder donated more than 50,000 masks and over 5,000 tubes of hand sanitizers to assist frontline healthcare workers during the COVID-19 pandemic. The company has allocated $100,000 to support local food banks in the area.
