These new rooms are outfitted with everything our team needs, including beds, monitors, endoscopy scopes, and more

Current & future needs

Each year, we grant essential funds to purchase OTMH’s priority equipment needs. This year, we will fund more equipment needed for cancer care, surgery, diagnostic imaging and ophthalmology. The equipment our hospital needs to provide exceptional care is not funded by the government. We rely on the generosity of our donors.

Better care. Happier days.

Your support funds essential equipment to help provide the best possible care to patients in need.
