Sharing the wealth in support of the work to build a new hospital, Barbara Shuster and Scott Lavender, on behalf of IG Wealth Management, are again Backing the Build campaign with a $4,500 donation.

The two County residents are Certified Financial Planners who this past spring, for the second consecutive year, completed income tax returns for the residents of Wellington on the Lake, in exchange for a donation to be directed to the hospital foundation’s campaign.

More than a dozen residents took part and IG Wealth Management also supported the fundraiser through a matching gift incentive from its head office based out of Winnipeg.

“This initiative from IG Wealth Management encouraged meaningful community involvement for the residents of Wellington on the Lake through Barbara and Scott’s efforts,” said Shannon Coull, executive director of the PECMH Foundation. “The way Scott and Barb are choosing to support our campaign through this income tax fundraiser is one that will help shape how health care will be delivered in our community for years to come. We are extremely grateful and are excited about the partnership we are forging with IG Wealth Management.”

“Ensuring we have the best care for the members of our community and region on a 24/7 basis is important to IG Wealth Management,” said Lavender. “This is why we have made this gift toward the building of a new home for Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital.”

“We felt this was an amazing turnout from the residents of Wellington on the Lake, who are excited to see a new hospital built in The County,” added Shuster. “It is inspiring to see the many ways that community supports the new hospital.”

The funds will help ensure the new hospital will be equipped with major medical equipment devices such as a Computerized Tomography (CT) Scanner, Digital Mammography Equipment, and a new Digital Radiography Machine. IG Wealth are also helping the environment by enabling us to explore sustainability, like solar energy and smart technology,” said Nancy Parks, Back the Build campaign chairperson. “Our new hospital will be built so those needing medical attention in our community will continue to receive the best care possible in a leading-edge facility.”

The Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital Foundation is a charitable organization dedicated to raising funds to advance health care for the patients of the hospital and the people of Prince Edward County.
