Scotiabank golf presentation - December 2, 2014
On Tuesday, Scotiabank in Picton presented the Foundation with $2,500.00 from their golf tournament. This past September, Scotiabank Ontario Central East division held its second annual golf tournament at Black Bear Ridge Golf Course in support of the hospital Foundations in its region. The tournament raised over $40,000.00 and Quinte Health Care Foundations saw $10,000.00 of that. The PECMH Foundation was proud to receive $2,500.00 of the $10,000.00 earmarked for QHC, which will be directed toward the purchase of priority medical equipment at Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital.

Royal Canadian Legion Provincial Command
The Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital Foundation was pleased to receive $6,000.00 from the Royal Canadian Legion, Ontario Command, Ladies Auxiliaries Charitable Foundation on February 27, 2015. This grant will offset the recent purchase of the telemetry equipment, used for cardiac monitoring at Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital. Having up-to-date cardiac monitoring equipment allows the physicians and medical staff at PECMH to manage patients who would otherwise be transferred to another hospital. With this upgrade, physicians and staff can now safely monitor a patient's cardiac condition close to home, with the patient surrounded by familiar caregivers, friends and family. The Foundation is very thankful for the ongoing generosity and support shown by the Royal Canadian Legion, Ontario Command. "Every donation, no matter the size, makes a difference in the care that you and your family value and deserve. We very much appreciate all support. We are especially grateful to the Royal Canadian Legion for helping us acquire state-of-the-art equipment that the government does not fund for our Hospital,” said Leo Finnegan, chair of the Foundation. "Our job is to support the medical staff at the hospital by raising donations to pay for the medical equipment and facilities needed to provide a range of health care services to our patients.” Hospitals serve the health care needs of their communities. Since being founded in 1985, the Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital Foundation’s job has been to serve the equipment needs of our hospital. Your donations assist our doctors, nurses and technologists to provide quality health care to the patients at PECMH. The government DOES NOT pay for new medical equipment. It has always been the responsibility of the community, through the Foundation’s fundraising efforts, to fund capital medical equipment needs. Each year, our County hospital staff treats more than 18,000 people with approximately 1,000 admitted for further care. Our goal is to build partnerships with those in the community 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 partners, like the Legion have demonstrated here today.
