For over three decades, John Armitage has volunteered when it counted the most. John has a bold, strategic and collaborative approach, and he is generous with his knowledge and network. His ability to open doors and make new healthcare champions in the construction industry and the local business community is unparalleled. Despite a busy career in construction and family commitments, he has once again volunteered as a fundraising champion. John has been the recipient of excellent health care at the Kingston hospitals, and he appreciates the important role they play in making Kingston a great place for families and professionals to live and do business. UHKF is lucky to have John Armitage in its corner as the Foundation embarks on an ambitious capital campaign for the next phase of redevelopment at Kingston’s hospitals.
