Recognize and thank a caregiver while supporting PECMH Foundation too!


Spring is the perfect time to recognize and thank caregivers by making a donation in their name

Thousands of County residents and visitors depend upon Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital for their care, each and every day of the year. To show our pride for the medical and support staff associated with our hospital, we want the community to show us their appreciation for these professionals who are committed to maintaining the good health of their family and friends by honouring their caregiver. The PECMH Foundation wants to help you say thank you!

In 2014, over 18,700 people visited our Emergency Department. There were 1,060 inpatient stays averaging 6.5 days, 3,192 endoscopies performed and 12,465 diagnostic images taken.   Those numbers alone add up to well over 35,000 individual visits and that doesn’t take into account visits to our specialist clinics, the MacSteven Dialysis Clinic or the 11 plus on-site clinics operated by the Family Health Team.

The people of Prince Edward County love their hospital and their caregivers. Patients often describe their visit to the hospital in terms of the people who cared for them. Rarely does a day go by that we don’t hear about the outstanding care provided by a member of our hospital team; a doctor, nurse, nurse practitioner, technologist, support staff or a helpful volunteer. Every day this great team provides extraordinary care to our community.

Each spring, the Foundation offers a unique way for the community to say thank you and pay tribute to their caregivers by making a donation through our Honour Your Caregiver program.

Recognizing your caregiver with a gift to the PECMH Foundation lets them know you appreciate and support the important role they play in your life and in the life of our community.

Those honoured will receive a card of recognition, informing him or her of your gratitude with the amount of your gift remaining confidential. And Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital benefits from your financial contribution.

Your gift to the Foundation will be used to purchase priority medical equipment for patients and members of our community. The government does not provide funding for the purchase of equipment and it is only through your generosity that we are able to put in place, state-of-the-art medical equipment at Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital.

You can send in your gift today to the Foundation office at 403 Main St., Picton, ON  K0K 2T0 or call the Foundation office at 613-476-1008 ext. 4425 if you would like to use your credit card. You can also visit and click Donate Now. On behalf of Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital and most importantly, the patients we serve, thank you for your generous support.

The Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital Foundation is a charitable organization whose mission is to raise money to advance health care for the people of Prince Edward County.

Each donation, no matter the size makes a difference in patient care. Thank you for your past, present and future support of the Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital Foundation.
