The Brooks & District Health Foundation is happy to announce its ‘Comfort Bear’ partnership with The Brick featuring their national Brickly Bear Campaign! You can get your Brickly Bear in store at the Brick, at their kiosks at Brooks Bombers games, and during sponsor night at Brooks Bandits games.
Brickly Bears are $20 (plus GST) and proceeds go to the Children’s Miracle Network. If you don’t need another bear at home, you can donate to a loving home through the Brooks & District Health Foundation’s ‘Comfort Bear’ program at the Brooks Health Centre. This program supplies bears to support patients during ER/EMS visits.
This is a WIN-WIN-WIN partnership, together we can truly make a difference!

Thanks to Tim Hortons amazing smile cookie campaign in our community and a generous donation from the volunteers at the Gift Shop Society, the Brooks & District Health Foundation was able to purchase eight brand new STAXI chairs for the Brooks Health Centre.
These chairs are very common in most health care facilities we are excited to now have two blue chairs at the hospital main entrance and four blue chairs at the ER entrance purchased in partnership with the Tim Horton's smile cookie campaign. As well as two red chairs at the long term care entrance purchased in partnership with the Gift Shop Society.
Construction is now underway ........
Help furnish and equip the new 14 bed wing. There will be 9 sub acute beds and 5 much needed palliative care rooms.
Donations to the Health Foundation have recently helped purchase ceiling lifts for long term care rooms. The new addition will move sub acute patients from long term care so Brooks will have 9 additional beds there. The total long term care beds will be 24.
Thanks to the help of wonderful donors like you, Brooks will continue to have great enhancements to local healthcare.
