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.

For most kids, running a lemonade stand means earning a little loose change to spend at the neighbourhood ice cream shop. But that’s not the case for the Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital Foundation’s youngest volunteer fundraiser.

Haimish Hunter is at it again, raising money to help aid the Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital Foundation team #BacktheBuild for a new hospital.

This year, the 8-year-old, with help from Mom, Hilary Fennell, set up a lemonade stand outside of their Bloomfield home on Thursday, August 15. The young entrepreneur spent three hours selling summer’s most refreshing beverage and raised $143.25 for Back the Build.

“Haimish is the youngest donor in our database. Our Foundation team, including Haimish’s Eema, Monica Alyea, is proud of the philanthropic zest Haimish is demonstrating, giving back to our hospital and community,” said Shannon Coull, executive director of the PECMH Foundation. “Whether it was a couple of dollars or a larger bill donated for a glass of lemonade, all will help support the Foundation get closer to our goal of building a new hospital for the County.”

This is Haimish’s second gift to the Back the Build campaign. His first gift was in 2017 when he donated $42 after collecting spare change along the Milford Fair parade route.

Haimish and his family would like to thank all the patrons who supported his lemon-aid stand.

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.

About Us

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.
