At the time of inception of the Foundation, the Palmerston and District Hospital was very proud of its financial record of operating without a deficit. The Hospital's original Board of Governors decided to create a Foundation in order to secure the monies raised and support this fine tradition of sound fiscal management. The Palmerston and District Hospital Foundation was created in July 1988.
The Palmerston and District Hospital Foundation was incorporated on July 25, 1988, and held its first official meeting on April 5, 1989.
During the first year of its existence, the Foundation raised a total of $170, 212.
