What we do.
Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital Foundation
Since being founded in 1985, the PECMH Foundation’s job has been to serve the funding needs of our hospital. That means that while the Ontario Ministry of Health, pays for the day-to-day hospital operations, the Foundation raises money in our community for the building, repairs and maintenance and for the purchase of high priority medical equipment needed for patient care.
Support exceptional health care for over 35,000 visitors to
our County hospital each year.
We Serve You.
Each year, our County hospital staff treats more than 18,000 people for all manner of health care needs with approximately 1,000 admitted for further care, many for acute medical conditions such as pneumonia and heart attacks. The average stay is 6.5 days at an average cost for acute inpatient care of $5,800.
You Make the Difference.
Your financial gifts are the reason we are able to provide needed exceptional medical care and treatment for you, your family, friends and neighbours. The normal lifespan of medical equipment is five to 10 years, so ongoing annual fund raising is crucial. On behalf of the PECMHF Board of Directors, staff and the patients we serve, we thank our donors for your generous support. Your donations, bequests and fundraising events make all of our projects possible. Thank you!
Our Strength Comes from Building Partnerships
The Foundation’s goal is to build partnerships in the County with individuals, businesses and industry, service organizations, social clubs, church groups and others who will work with us to meet the needs of our fundraising endeavours. Supporting our hospital in this central role cannot be managed alone; it can only succeed through the strength of coming together as community partners.
