Posted: March 28, 2013
OAKVILLE, ON (March 26, 2013) - Darko Vranich, President and CEO of Vrancor Development Corporation and Vrancor Hospitality Management, has made a $1 million gift to the campaign to equip the new Oakville Hospital.
"I'm delighted to support this new healthcare facility in Oakville,” said Darko Vranich. “I have seen firsthand the dedication and commitment of the OTMH healthcare team and I know they will use the new hospital to deliver exceptional care to Oakville’s growing community.”
In recognition of his gift the Cardio-Respiratory Department in the new hospital will be named in honour of the Vranich family. The Cardio-Respiratory Department at OTMH provides urgent assessment, treatment and education for outpatients referred with known or suspected cardiac disease, a pacemaker clinic, nuclear medicine services and respiratory services including asthma education, sleep studies, and cardiopulmonary stress testing.
 
“We are grateful for this leadership gift to our campaign and for the impact it will have to patient care in our new hospital,” said Tina Triano, CEO of the Oakville Hospital Foundation. “Darko’s investment in our community will greatly benefit patients for years to come.”
 
The new, state-of-the-art hospital in Oakville will provide up to 457 inpatient beds and offer a full range of acute health care services, including complex continuing care rehabilitation, renal dialysis, acute inpatient care, maternal child care and inpatient and outpatient adult, child and adolescent mental health services.
 
The Oakville Hospital Foundation is partnering with the community to fund essential equipment for Oakville’s Hospital to enable high quality patient care. Generous support from the community is needed to help the Foundation achieve its $60 million campaign goal and equip the state-of-the-art healthcare facility scheduled to open in December 2015.
