So much to be grateful for!


There are so many reasons to say thank you to our amazing donors – and now we have four more!

Because of our donors, the Winchester District Memorial Hospital (WDMH) team now has four new pieces of equipment to help provide the very best care for patients.

Two new Workplace on Wheels – or WOWs have arrived in the Rehabilitation Unit.  These computer systems allow our Rehabilitation team to have access to patient charting and information right at the bedside during appointments at WDMH and at our Embrun clinic. The total cost: $15,251.78.

In the Operating Room, a new hysteroscope is used on a regular basis for surgeries performed by WDMH’s four Gynecologists. The total cost: $7,138.08.

The hysteroscope is one of five new pieces of equipment that have arrived at WDMH, thanks to our generous donors.

There is nothing better than a warm blanket before or after surgery. A new blanket warmer in the Operating Room is providing comfort and warmth for patients. The total cost: $9,005.60.

“We are so grateful to everyone who donates to our General Equipment Fund,” says Managing Director Kristen Casselman. “Many people are surprised to learn that the provincial government does not fund the purchase of medical equipment for Ontario hospitals. To help ensure that WDMH has the right tools to provide excellent health care for our patients, the Foundation works with donors who care about WDMH and who want to make an impact. Thank you!”
