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.

The Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital Foundation started the day on a happy note with a gift of $100 from David Hepburn on behalf of his Many Happy Returns initiative. David’s family collected the empty wine bottles after the Uncork Canada wine tasting event at the Crystal Palace in June and donated the proceeds to the Hospital Foundation. The funds will be directed toward the Foundation’s current Picture of Health Campaign. This campaign focuses on securing medical equipment for most of the departments at Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital at a cost of $250,000. Again, the Foundation is asking for public support and David has answered that call.

This is David’s fourth donation to the Hospital Foundation and he is approaching his 30th donation to charitable causes in Prince Edward County. David, who has intellectual exceptionalities regularly collects beer and liquor bottles and returns them to the Rotary Club of Wellington, Ontario bottle depot in Wellington.

If you are hosting a party or have refundable bottles hanging around waiting to be returned, David and his family are available for pickups by contacting hep.david@gmail.com or by calling 613-968-0181.

The funds raised through David’s bottle returns are donated to worthy projects in Prince Edward County.

For more information on the Foundation’s Picture of Health Campaign or to make a donation please call 613-476-1008 ext. 4425 or visit us online at www.pecmhf.ca

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.
