Clara and Jim Aspden were happily married for 67 years, living in Woodstock where they raised a family and started various local businesses. Since Clara passed away in 2016, Jim decided to pay tribute to his wife and the wonderful care his family has received over the years by giving back to the hospital. “Woodstock Hospital has always been good to us. It’s comforting to have a reliable hospital with great staff in our community.”

The Aspden’s have four children, six grandchildren and seven great grandchildren, all of whom were born at Woodstock Hospital. Their granddaughter is also a nurse on the Maternal Child Unit, which is why the family decided to give $50,000 to the unit. We extend a heartfelt thanks for their donation, which will make a significant contribution to equipment purchases to support our community's mothers and babies.
