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.
