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.
