Joe Kerr Limited Funds a New ECG for Hospital
A new $20,000 donation from Joe Kerr Limited has fully funded a new electrocardiogram machine for the ER at the Wingham & District Hospital.
Last fall, one of the existing ECG machine was unexpectedly decommissioned. The need to replace it immediately was both unanticipated and urgent. Murray Kerr and Andrew Kerr of Joe Kerr Limited came to the rescue with a generous $20,000 donation that secured the new ECG machine for the hospital.
ECG machines are used to detect heart activity and diagnose cardiac conditions. It is an essential tool used in the emergency room. Everyone at the Hospital and the Foundation are grateful to the Kerrs for their continued generosity that is providing vital care to so many people in our community.
Everyone at the Wingham & District Hospital Foundation is grateful to count the Leslie family, as well as Leslie Motors, as part of their supportive hospital community.
