Merry Christmas from Wingham Co-Operators: Brett Lammie Donates to Wingham & District Hospital to Honour Clients

The Wingham & District Hospital Foundation has received a donation of $2,500 from Brett and Emilie Lammie of the Co-Operators in Wingham. The Lammies are making the donation to the Oncology department at the hospital as a way to honour and thank their clients for their business throughout the year.

The Lammies annually reach out to their clients during the holiday season, but this year they wanted to make a more meaningful gesture than a greeting card or gift basket. “Local healthcare is so important and we all know someone who has been touched by cancer which is why it’s important to us to give to the chemo clinic in Wingham,” said Brett.

When accepting the donation, WDH Foundation Coordinator Nicole Jutzi said: “We are always grateful for the support of local business owners and we are especially appreciative at this time of year when people decide to give the gift of healthcare”.

A new, larger space for the Oncology department at the Wingham & District Hospital is currently being constructed as part of the ongoing major redevelopment project. The Oncology and adjacent pharmacy departments are the first areas to see significant work and it is hoped that the new Oncology clinic will be open and operational in the spring of 2018.

Our doctors, our nurses, the digital imaging department, and the rest of the staff at the hospital provide that compassionate care that everyone looks for when they walk into their local hospital. And, I think we’ve got one of the best local hospitals in Southwestern Ontario.

I donate in memory and in honour of my Mom and Dad. I am sure they would be thrilled to realize that our family has continued giving, but more importantly, hopefully encourage more people to donate to the Wingham & District Hospital Foundation. All three of us, at one time or another, received outstanding care at the hospital when we were patients. We have a strong connection with the hospital! I know the community feels very fortunate to have a local hospital – which is an excellent one – as it plays such an important part in everyone’s lives.
