Welcome to the Foundation of CKHA

The Foundation of Chatham-Kent Health Alliance (CKHA) exists to enhance the quality of healthcare available to the citizens of Chatham-Kent by raising funds and providing other resources to support CKHA. Since its inception, over $40 million has been raised to date to support CKHA in its efforts to provide patients, and their loved ones, with quality healthcare at both the Chatham and Sydenham Campuses.


“As a lifelong Chatham-Kent resident, I knew the importance of maintaining quality healthcare in our community. That is why I first started volunteering my time for the Foundation of CKHA”
Ric H.
“If I hadn’t had the surgery, I would have had a full leg cast for four months, so I’m incredibly thankful that CKHA was able to provide me with the option of orthopedic surgery”
Stacy H.
“Giving to the Foundation of CKHA’s monthly giving program is really easy… after a few months, you don’t feel a thing! If everyone gave a little, it would be a lot.”
Ken and Shirley G.
