Crozier & Associates Consulting Engineers has announced a $50,000 donation to the Milton District Hospital Foundation’s Our Home, Our Hospital fundraising campaign which will support the expanded Maternal Newborn Department.
As part of the donation, a Labour Birthing Recovery Post-Partum Room (LBRP) will be named in honour of Crozier & Associates in the new Maternal Newborn Department, opening October 1, 2017. The new birthing rooms will feature modern designs, allowing for an improved patient experience from labour and birth to recovery. The rooms are designed in such a way that provides a warm and a comfortable place with tasteful décor that makes family feel at home even when in hospital.
Milton is one of Canada’s youngest and fastest growing communities, which means on most days the Maternal Newborn Unit is operating above its current capacity.
“With the growth of our Milton office and expansion of the hospital, we felt it was the perfect time to give to a cause that will inevitably be used by many of our staff, their families, and the greater community.”, says Christopher Crozier, Principal of Crozier & Associates.
The existing Maternal Newborn Department delivers more than 1,000 babies into the arms of parents each year. With the opening of the expansion, the hospital will be able to accommodate over 2,400 births annually, to better meet the needs of the growing Milton community. Each room will be equipped with state of the art technology and will be more family friendly, with a pullout sleeper sofa for a family member’s overnight stay and private washrooms in all rooms – features that the current hospital doesn’t have.
“We are exceptionally grateful for the generosity of Crozier and Associates. This gift to our hospital will benefit our tiniest patients as we welcome them to the world and allow us to care for more families close to home”, says Helen Vatistas, Executive Director, Milton District Hospital Foundation.
As the Milton community continues to grow, so does Crozier & Associates’ dedication to supporting local causes. With offices in Milton, Toronto and Collingwood, Crozier & Associates has adopted “The Crozier Way” in commitment to clients and community needs.
