Another boost for PEC hospital equipment campaign

CHEERS! to The Knights of Columbus in Picton who recently donated $500 toward the Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital Foundation’s $750,000 Campaign for Digital Mammography equipment. The purchase of this equipment will ensure breast screening services can remain in Picton and that local residents have access to state-of-the-art ultrasound tests close-to-home. Presenting the donation to Leo Finnegan, vice-chair of the PECMH Foundation, is Alfred Gannon, Grand Knight of the Knights of Columbus. 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 October, County residents have enthusiastically risen to the challenge of raising $750,000 for the new equipment. It is because of organizations like the Knights of Columbus, that the Foundation is nearing its goal to bring County residents this state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment. Briar Boyce photo
