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.

Look at what your donations help fund. This is an echocardiogram (ECG) machine that is used for heart monitoring in the Emergency Department at PECM Hospital.

Each year, our County hospital staff treats more than 18,000 patients in our ER with approximately 1,000 admitted for further care, many for medical conditions such as heart attacks. We have an ECG Machine both on the Inpatient Unit and in Emerg and they get a lot of use.

It may not look glamorous, but this is an essential piece of equipment in our hospital. This machine cost just over $22,000 and was paid for by realtors at Re/Max Quinte Ltd. Brokerage in Prince Edward County who directing the proceeds from the inaugural Teeing Up Fore Health Care golf classic toward the Hospital Foundation’s LIFE SAVER Campaign for medical equipment, which included this replacement ECG machine.

Did you know? The government DOES NOT pay for medical equipment. It is the responsibility of the community, through the Foundation's fundraising efforts, to equip our County Hospital with state-of-the-art equipment.

Your support makes a difference! 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.
