Bruce Power is expanding a commitment to support local hospitals.

In 2019, Bruce Power made a $1.45 million commitment over five years to hospital foundations across Grey, Bruce and Huron counties.

On Tuesday, Bruce Power officials say the company is expanding that commitment to $1.7 million by 2023.

And it will add funding for the new Markdale Hospital through the Centre Grey Health Services Foundation along with the Kincardine and Community Health Care Foundation.

Since the company announced its commitment in 2019, Bruce Power has donated $954,000 across twelve hospital foundations in the region through its Corporate Social Responsibility program and supplier fundraising initiatives.
