Wellington Lions Club members have their hearts set on helping pick up the fundraising pace for cardiac monitoring equipment at Picton hospital.

The Lions presented the Picton hospital foundation $500 toward the telemetry equipment campaign with funds raised through various community projects. Up-to-date cardiac monitoring equipment allows the physicians at Picton to manage patients who would otherwise be transferred to another hospital.

“With this upgrade, physicians and staff can safely monitor a patient’s cardiac condition close to home, with the patient surrounded by familiar caregivers, friends and family,” said Leo Finnegan, president of the hospital foundation. “We are especially grateful to the Lions for helping us acquire telemetry equipment for our hospital. Every donation, no matter the size, makes a difference in the care that you and your family value and deserve. We very much appreciate all support. Our job is to support the medical staff at the hospital by raising donations to pay for the medical equipment and facilities needed to provide a range of health care services to County residents. We cannot lose sight of this as our mission and our ongoing priority.”

County residents who would like to help pick up the pace to raise the last $100,000 for the telemetry unit by contributing to the campaign goal of $237,000 can  visit or call 613-476-1008 ext. 4425.
Once again, the PECMH Foundation and Huff Estates have partnered to offer a one night stay in a premiere suite at the Inn with complimentary breakfast and a wine tour and tasting.  Value of $250. For each donation of $100 or more, your name will be entered into a draw to win this fabulous getaway. Entries must be received no later than 4 p.m. on Feb. 28th with the draw to take place on March 7 at 4p.m.
