The Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital recently donated the funds for the purchase of a new transfusion chair for our hospital. Constructed with memory foam, the chair provides a comfortable seat for patients who must remain seated for a long time. Click here for more information.
Susan Law, Past President of the PECM Hospital Auxiliary, received her Provincial Life Membership in the Hospital Auxiliary of Ontario from Elaine Meharg, President of the Hospital Auxiliaries of Ontario on November 6 in Toronto. Sue was nominated in the Leadership category in recognition of the many responsibilities she has undertaken since joining our Picton Auxiliary and also in Ottawa before moving to the County. She is still active as a volunteer in the dialysis clinic and with the upcoming Festival of Trees.
The Fall General Meeting was held at the Picton Golf and County Club on Thursday, October 18th. Highlights included the presentation of a cheque for $50,000, which completes the Auxiliary's $250,000 commitment to the digital imaging campaign at QHC Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital!
Thanks to our guest speaker at the meeting, Acting Sergeant Anthony Mann, who will be the County's new Community Service Officer as of January 2013. Sgt. Mann addressed the members concerning what we all can do to keep ourselves safe. Topics included internet and telephone scams, as well as other safety issues.
