– Our New Hospital Campaign
Back the Build
With COVID-19, we are reminded that, on many levels, we are all connected. Our priority is the health and safety of the people of PEC as well as those living across the Quinte region. Quinte Health Care (QHC) is planning for an unprecedented public health threat across our entire region that will impact all four hospitals within our healthcare system. This is why our Foundation has set up a PECMHF-COVID-19 Relief Fund. Donations directed to this fund will be used wherever funding is needed in the QHC 4-hospital system to treat COVID-19 patients and to help save the lives of those living in PEC and beyond.
Your donation to the PECMHF-COVID Relief Fund will help with the acquisition of medical equipment, transformation of hospital spaces to accommodate an increase in patients, PPE and supplies, for example. Donate today by clicking on the Donate Button labeled “PECMHF-COVID-19 Relief Fund" now. MORE
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.

We Serve You.
Each year, more than 40,000 people use our County hospital. Our doctors, nurses, nursing assistants, personal support workers and technnologists treat about 20,000 emergency room patients annually and admit over 800 for in-patient care, many for acute medical situations such as pneumonia, COPD and heart attacks.
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.
