County realtors at RE/MAX Quinte Ltd are teeing up support to improve the care patients receive at Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital. They are joining forces to host the second annual Teeing Up Fore Health Care Golf Classic at the Picton Golf and Country Club in support of priority medical equipment purchases.

All net proceeds will be directed to the foundation to assist with the purchase of a replacement colonoscope at a cost of almost $30,000 for the Endoscopy Department at PECMH.

Last year’s inaugural tournament net more than $23,000 and purchased an electrocardiogram (ECG) machine for the emergency department at PECMH.

“The Foundation raises money in our community for the purchase of priority medical equipment needed for patient care at PECMH,” said Leo Finnegan, chair of the foundation. “Each year, our County hospital staff treats more than 18,000 patients in our emergency department with approximately 1,000 admitted for further care, many for medical conditions such as heart attacks. 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 endeavours. We are proud of RE/MAX’s efforts to Tee Up Fore Health Care in support of our hospital.”

In addition, hole sponsorships are being sold for $150 each. If you are looking for a fun, feel-good way to increase visibility for your business in support of enhanced health care delivery at PECMH, call Herb Pliwischkies at 613-921-7441 or Kevin Gale at 613-242-7295.
