CWB Group donated the money for the the expansion of the Milton District Hopsital. The money will help fund equipment purchases for the expansion and will support the Rapid Assessment/Fast Track Unit in the new and expanded emergency department.

“CWB Group is proud to support the expansion of the Milton District Hospital," says Doug Luciani, president and CEO, CWB Group. "Our employees live and work in this community and we’re honored to be a part of this initiative to change patient care history in Milton.”
“This significant investment will help ensure the health and wellbeing of Milton families, friends, neighbors and CWB Group employees who are vital to our community. Our inclusion among their leading philanthropic ventures is something for which we are deeply grateful,” says Brian Penman, Board Chair of the Milton District Hospital Foundation. “Contributions from corporations in the community, such as CWB Group, are vital to the success of the project.”
The Hospital Expansion will see a new Emergency Department three times the current size, a modern maternal newborn unit better suited to support Milton’s young and growing population, new space for the Diagnostic Imaging Department, Surgical Sites, Critical Care Unit and the addition of a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) machine-Milton’s first.
