Biographical history

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.
