Updated donor wall displays names of proud supporters of Picton hospital

Expressing thanks for the generosity and support of so many, Larry Matheson, the Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital Foundation president, announced a successful campaign to raise $750,000 for a new ultrasound and digital mammograpy machines at Picton will officially end November 1.

“The support that our foundation receives from the community is tremendous,” he said. “With the contributions to date, we have already purchased the ultrasound machine for our Diagnostic Imaging Department and it has been in use here since early summer. The need for new equipment is a pressing need for our doctors and the hospital and as the province does not fund this new equipment. Our foundation must raise money so this equipment can be purchased. It is great that we have a caring community who support us in our endeavours to raise this money.”

To recognize and thank supporters, the foundation updated its donor wall that was unveiled last year in the hallway close to the emergency entrance.

“Since the unveiling, a lot of individuals and organizations have made donations and today we are pleased to be able to add more plaques to our wall and to upgrade the level of some donors,” Matheson said.

The Shirt-Tail Cuzins originated in 2002 with a group relatives and friends who decided to put their talents to good use and raise funds for Picton hospital and other charities. A Classic Country Music Jamboree was held annually at the Shed in Milford and over the next seven years, $11,700 was raised for PECMH.
