Bank of Montreal Commits $40,000 to the Our Hospital, Our Future Project

Bank of Montreal has pledged to contribute $40,000 to the Wingham & District Hospital Foundation over the next four years to support the major redevelopment project. With branches in Wingham, Lucknow, Mildmay and Teeswater, Bank of Montreal has a presence throughout much of the Wingham & District Hospital’s service area. Their clients and staff are the same people who will benefit from the improvements to the Hospital facility and services.

Representatives from BMO attended the 15th Annual CKNX Healthcare Heroes Radiothon on May 12th to present their donation to the Wingham & District Hospital Foundation. All donations to the WDH Foundation made during the Radiothon also went towards the $4 million Our Hospital, Our Future campaign goal. Regional VP of Personal Banking Cheri Knott said, “BMO has a long history of being an active participant in the communities it serves and we are pleased to be able to continue that tradition with this pledge to the Wingham Hospital”. Campaign Chair Mark Foxton also extended special thanks to BMO Southwestern Ontario Commercial Account Manager Byron Henderson for his support in making this important donation a reality.

Major donations such as the one from Bank of Montreal has made it possible for the Our Hospital, Our Future Campaign  to achieve 60% of its goal prior to the CKNX Healthcare Heroes Radiothon. All pledges that were called in that day were added to campaign total and will assist in reaching the target of $4 million. Currently, work is underway to transform the gymnasium of the former Wingham Public School into a state of the art medical clinic and work is ongoing to expand the Rehabilitation department.
