Meet Your Hospital Foundation.
Behind the scenes at the Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital (PECMH) is a group of community volunteers who have your best interests at heart. Their aim is to make the PECMH – your hospital – the best rural community hospital in Ontario! These men and women, all of whom call the County home, give freely of their time and expertise as members of the Board of Directors of the PECMH Foundation.
What the Foundation Does.
Hospitals serve the health care needs of their communities. 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, through your tax dollars, pays for the day-to-day operation of our hospital, the Foundation raises money in our community for the bricks and mortar building, for repairs and maintenance and for the purchase of high priority medical equipment needed for patient care.
Support YOUR hospital.
Each year, our County hospital staff treats thousands of people for all manner of health care needs - over 35,000 individual visits. Your support allows us to purchase vital medical equipment that saves lives and improves quality of life for your friends, family and neighbours.
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.
Why Your Gifts Make the Difference.
Your financial gifts are the reason the PEC Memorial Hospital is able to provide exceptional medical care and treatment for you, your family, friends and neighbours when you need it. Every year, the Foundation undertakes a campaign to raise funds for high priority medical equipment that our doctors, nurses and medical team need to ensure they can continue to provide the best health care possible. The normal lifespan of medical equipment is five to 10 years, so ongoing fund raising is a crucial.
On behalf of the PECMH Foundation Board of Directors, our staff and most importantly, the patients we serve, we thank our donors for your generous and ongoing support. Your donations, bequests and fundraising make all of our projects possible. Thank you!
