Our History Albert Watson Bennett was born in Hopewell Cape in 1864. He studied law in Dorchester and was admitted to the bar of New Brunswick in 1885. Throughout his career, Judge Bennett saw a need for improved health care. In 1960, Judge Bennett made a large bequest in his will to the Albert County Hospital which was realized in 1973 following the death of his wife.
Our History In 1974, the Friends of the Albert County Hospital Inc. was founded and served the hospital until 1992. In 1998, the Bennett and Albert County Hospital Foundation was founded. In 2008, after hospital became a community health centre, the Foundation’s name changed to the Bennett and Albert County Health Care Foundation.
