A new 500,000 pledge by New Millenium Tire is the second major donation by the company in support of Brampton’s healthcare system.
This current donation matches an earlier $500,000 to the William Osler Health System both of which will go to enhance urgently needed capital requirements and purchase supplies for both Brampton Civic and Peel Memorial hospitals.
The donations were made by Andy, Kala and Dhugga on behalf of the company.
The Dhugga’s use the occasion of their annual summer BBQ to inspire their friends, colleagues and professional networks to support Osler by matching the funds raised at this annual event.
“We were brought up to understand the importance of giving back,” said Andy Dhugga, CEO, New Millenium Tire Centre. “In my household, there were two priorities for giving. One was to give back to the temple, and the other was to give to the local hospital. The COVID-19 pandemic taught us that the hospital is our temple, especially during such critical times. We are pleased to give back to William Osler Health
System, to help strengthen our community for years to come.”
Some of the funds will go to the redevelopment of Peel Memorial that will transform into a multi-storey facility with
250 inpatient beds and space to grow, new and enhanced outpatient services and day programs, and the expansion of the existing Urgent Care Centre to 24/7 operations later this year—setting the stage for a second full Emergency Department in Brampton. The proposed expanded cancer care services at Brampton Civic Hospital will address the growing need for cancer care in the community and will bring more cancer care services — including radiation treatment — closer to home for patients and families in Brampton and the
“New Millenium Tire Centre truly wants to make a difference in the health of our community,” said Ken Mayhew, President and CEO, William Osler Health System. “They have been a constant support to Osler both prior to the pandemic, and beyond. Thank you to Andy Dhugga, Kala Dhugga and Paul Dhugga, as well as all of those at New Millenium Tire Centre for this generous gift and for being an inspiration to business owners across our region.”
