$50,000 Donation Honours Healthcare Workers & Supports COVID-19 Response Efforts
Rod and Joanne McDonagh of Lucknow donated $50,000 to the Wingham & District Hospital Foundation to help the Hospital acquire additional medical equipment required to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We were thinking of all the hospital staff when we decided to make this gift,” says McDonagh. “Doctors, nurses, support staff, administrators, maintenance, environmental services. Absolutely everyone”.
The generous donation by the McDonaghs will support the purchase of several new medical infusion pumps. This equipment will help ensure the Hospital continues to provide high quality care to all patients and is able to respond as best as possible to the COVID-19 crisis. The pumps will continue to be of value following the pandemic and will be put to use in alternate departments.
It is important at the best of times that our local caregivers have the equipment and tools needed to care for everyone in our community and these uniquely challenging times make that more true than ever.
Everyone at the Wingham & District Hospital Foundation is deeply grateful for Rod and Joanne McDonagh’s generosity and support. It is one more example of the extraordinary community spirit that has helped us achieve great things in the past and will help us weather this storm.
