Realtors at RE/MAX Quinte Ltd. in Prince Edward County are again teeing up to improve the care patients receive at Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital.

On Tuesday, June 12, 2018 RE/MAX Quinte Ltd. and the Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital Foundation will join forces to host the fourth annual Teeing Up Fore Health Care golf classic at the Picton Golf and Country Club in support of priority medical equipment purchases at our County hospital.

The Teeing Up Fore Health Care golf committee is thrilled to announce that Wilkinson & Company LLP, Chartered Accountants and Tax Specialists will again champion the golf classic at the title level. The firm generously sponsored $5,000 toward supporting the tournament and over the four years since the tournament’s inception, have given $20,000.

“This tournament offers the opportunity to come together as a community in support of the current campaign to raise money for replacement medical equipment needs at PECMH. The money raised will have a direct impact on County residents and visitors and the health care they receive,” said Jeff Snider, CPA CA and partner with Wilkinson & Company. “As a firm that is dedicated to community service, Wilkinson & Company has a special interest in ensuring that when not-for-profit organizations, like the Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital Foundation succeeds, we help improve the quality of care patients receive at the hospital,” he said.

Net proceeds will be directed to the PECMH Foundation to assist with the purchase of two Trilogy 202 Ventilators for our Emergency Department. These portable ventilators provide life support for transporting critically ill patients from one hospital to another. The ventilator breathes for these patients who are unable to breathe for themselves. This machine is also able to provide oxygen under pressure with a mask similar to a machine used for treating sleep apnea Acquiring this new equipment will cost $31,902 for two ventilators. We need your help to achieve this goal!

“Our Foundation raises money to purchase medical equipment needed for patient care at PECMH. Each year our County hospital staff treats more than 39,000 patients. Our goal is to build partnerships in the County with businesses and others who will work with us to meet the needs of our fundraising actions. We are proud of RE/MAX’s efforts in support of our hospital,” said Monica Alyea, chairperson of the PECMH Foundation.

The dedication of sponsors, like Wilkinson & Company helps maximize proceeds for this tournament and shows how these partnerships can help deliver care for patients. The committee is proud to announce that Wellings of Picton, Parkside Landscaping and Contracting, CIBC Mobile Mortgage Team, Herb Pliwischkies and MarketHigh Advertising have chipped in their commitment to our County Hospital through sponsoring the tournament at the $2,500 level.
