Home > About Us
Formed in 1997 with the merger of The Twin Oaks Hospital Foundation and The Birches Foundation, both of these legacy organizations have been raising funds in our community for our institutions – entirely through the work of volunteers.
Funds raised by the Foundation go towards the care and comfort of residents and patients of Twin Oaks Hospital and The Birches Home for Special Care that is not covered by the province. These facilities are very important to the residents of Musquodoboit Harbour and the Eastern Shore and The Birches has 42 nursing home beds with Twin Oaks Hospital having 14 beds and a very busy out patient department. Most families in the facility catchment area have been touched by the Twin Oaks and the Birches in some way.
The Foundation is a community-based fundraising registered charity that raises funds for patient / resident care improvements at the Twin Oaks Hospital and The Birches Home for Special Care. Since 1991, local supporters have helped us provide for the care and comfort of the residents and patients of our community healthcare facilities.
We are also assisting in funding the new patient registration area at Twin Oaks. For those of you who use this service, it will provide you with much needed space and privacy.
