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.

Picton Home Hardware have made their first gift to the new hospital campaign thus staking their claim on being the first business to publicly commit to supporting the proposed redevelopment of Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital.

Adam and Chrissy Busscher, owners of the Picton store handed over $1,305.24 that was raised at April's electronics recycling event to Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital Foundation staff member Briar Boyce on August 21. The funds will be restricted to support the hospital redevelopment campaign.

The couple also recognized the tireless and enthusiastic efforts of e-waste event co-ordinator Linda Ryan who organizes these happenings at the store and avidly supports the hospital. The Busschers also thanked their staff members who volunteer at the events.

Got a clunky old TV or computer to ditch? Picton Home Hardware will host a free electronics recycling event in their parking lot this Saturday and Sunday, 9 am until 4 pm. This weekend's e-waste event will also support the hospital redevelopment efforts. Home Hardware will be hosting various events at their store in the future to support the new hospital campaign as plans continue to unfold.

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.
