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.

The Wellington on the Lake Woodcrafters carved up their annual donation to the PECMH Foundation by presenting $600 to Foundation Communications Co-ordinator, Briar Boyce on Friday. The funds were raised at the 20th annual Wellington on the Lake Woodcrafters chicken barbecue held every year in May. More than 220 meals were feasted upon by the residents and guests.

The 35-member Woodcrafters group has asked this donation be designated to offset the purchase of priority medical equipment for our County Hospital.

The Woodcrafters have been designating the proceeds of their chicken barbecue to the PECMH Foundation since 2005. With this donation, their cumulative giving total rises to $5,367.90 –and earns them a plaque on the Foundation’s donor recognition wall. The group have already started to plan its 21st anniversary barbecue for 2019.

The group would also like to thank the volunteers and spouses who helped with the barbecue preparations and serving and all the gracious residents of Wellington on the Lake who enthusiastically support this event every year.

We Serve You.

Each year, more than 39,000 people use our County hospital. Our doctors, nurses, nursing assistants, personal support workers and technicians treat about 19,000 emergency room patients annually and admit over 750 for in-patient care, many for acute medical situations such as pneumonia, COPD and heart attacks.

About Us

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.
