Welcome to the Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital Foundation's website.
Picking up the pace for Telemetry
The Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital Foundation was the proud recipient of a $30,000.00 donation from the Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital Auxiliary on February 20, 2014. The Auxiliary turned over the proceeds from the 2013 Festival of Trees to the Foundation, which will be directed toward the current campaign to bring updated cardiac monitoring equipment to Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital. This type of community support is vital as the government DOES NOT provide funds to purchase medical equipment. It has always been the responsibility of the community, through the Foundation's
fundraising efforts, to fund capital medical equipment needs. Since the campaign launch in November, County residents and community groups have enthusiastically risen to the challenge of raising $237,000.00 for this new equipment. It is because of organizations like the PECMH Auxiliary that the Foundation is nearing its goal to bring County residents this state-of-the-art cardiac monitoring equipment. For more information on the telemetry unit
upgrade for PECMH, please visit http://www.pecmhf.ca/ or call the Foundation office at 613-476-1008 ext. 4425.

As the new Interim
Director of Development for the Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital
Foundation, I would like to introduce myself by way of a story as I know the
County is well known for its many great storytellers.
I was born at Picton
Hospital… no, not the current one; the old one and please don’t do the math! I
feel very fortunate to be able to come back to my County roots and celebrate a
‘homecoming’ of sorts. My Mom, Mary was the eldest of eight children born to
Mike and Florence Cole of Green Point. My Dad, Orey Lloyst, was training as
gunner at the Picton Army Barracks when he met my Mom at a dance and the rest
as they say, is history.
I am thrilled to have
been appointed as the Interim Director of Development for the Prince Edward
County Memorial Hospital Foundation.Although
I have only been on site a short time, I feel at home and have ‘rolled up my
sleeves’ to ensure that PECMH remains the Cornerstone for Healthcare in the County.
As you may know, we at
the PECMHF are in the midst of our annual fundraising campaign to raise
$237,000.00 for urgently needed telemetry equipment. This is a much needed
upgrade for cardiac monitoring on our Hospital’s Inpatient Unit which was last
updated in 1999.
We are halfway to
reaching our goal but we still need to raise $100,000.00.I am asking for your financial support to
help us purchase this lifesaving equipment.
Why should you support
this Campaign?Because heart disease affects
us all; be it a loved one, a friend, a co-worker, a neighbour or a visitor to
our County. This equipment is vitality
important to the residents of Prince Edward County.
Forty-nine years ago in
1965, my father died suddenly of a massive, undetected heart attack.He was 49-years-old at the time and much too
young to leave a family behind. To this day, I wonder if early detection and
diagnosis could have prevented his premature death.
current campaign to purchase cardiac monitoring equipment will help saves lives
now and into the future.Please join Dr. Koval, staff and physicians, members of our community,
the Foundation Board, our volunteers and myself by ‘picking up the pace for
Telemetry’ and putting our campaign over the top by Valentine’s Day, February
14th.Your community will love you for it.
If you have already
made a gift, please accept our heartfelt thanks and tell a friend about our
