Name of creator
In 1946 the Local Hospital Council began lobbying for the foundation of Fox Memorial Hospital which opened in 1949 to provide health services to citizens of the Carberry, Manitoba area. Additions were created in 1954 and 1964. A predecessor had been the Carberry Cottage Hospital which closed in the early 1900's. The name was changed in 1987 to the Carberry Plains District Health Centre, and in 2001 a sign erected indicating the commonly used name had returned to Fox Memorial Hospital. It was closely affiliated with the Carberry Plains Personal Care Home. In 1948 the Fox Memorial Hospital Auxiliary was founded to fund-raise for the facilities and is still active. The main funder was Mina Fox.
Records have been presented to the Carberry Plains Archives in 1988 by Carberry Plains Museum, in 1989 by Wallace and Evelyn Moffatt of Brookdale, Manitoba, in 1991, 1994, and 1998 by the Fox Memorial Hospital, in 1995 by Lynne Bailey of Carberry, Manitoba, and in 1995 by the Town of Carberry. Accession 2007.20 was presented to the Archives in 2007 by the Carberry Plains District Health Centre Auxiliary. Accession 2008.13 was presented in 2008 to the Archives by the staff of the hospital
