What We Do.
Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital Foundation
Founded in 1985, the PECMH Foundation’s job is to serve the funding needs of our hospital. 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.
We Serve You.
Each year, more than 40,000 people use our County hospital. Our doctors, nurses, nursing assistants, personal support workers and technicians treat about 20,000 emergency room patients annually and admit over 900 for in-patient care, many for acute medical situations such as pneumonia, COPD and heart attacks.
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.
