Bruce Power Supports COVID-19 Response at Wingham & District Hospital
Bruce Power is contributing $20,000 towards the COVID-19 pandemic response efforts at the Wingham & District Hospital.
This recent gift is the continuation of the $100,000 donation Bruce Power pledged to the hospital in 2019 (along with several other hospitals). While the original pledge was intended to benefit ongoing equipment upgrades, given the circumstances that have arisen around the COVID-19 crisis, Bruce Power has generously allowed their 2020 contribution to be directed towards costs directly associated with the pandemic response.
The $20,000 donation from Bruce Power will help fund additional infusion pumps at the Wingham & District Hospital. This equipment will enhance the Hospital’s ability to respond to the COVID-19 crisis while continuing to provide high quality care to all patients throughout this challenging situation and beyond.
James Scongack, Executive VP of Corporate Affairs said: “Bruce Power is be pleased to support the Wingham & District Hospital’s leadership efforts to assist community members through this pandemic”.
The Wingham & District Hospital Foundation is grateful to Bruce Power for honouring their commitment to local healthcare at this time that is presenting challenges to all industries and for supporting the changing needs to our Hospital.
$5,000 Donation from Brussels Optimist Club
The four local hospitals in Wingham, Listowel, Clinton and Seaforth have all received a $5,000 donation from the Brussels Optimist Club.
The Optimist Club had intended to host its annual dinner and auction on March 14, but made the decision to postpone in light of growing concern around COVID-19. The hospitals had been the intended beneficiaries of that event. Nonetheless, the members of the Optimist Club made the generous decision to contribute $20,000 to support local healthcare even without the anticipated success of the event.
The contribution by the Brussels Optimist Club will be directed towards vital medical equipment and facility upgrades at each of the four hospitals. Their generosity will ensure that all our local caregivers continue to have the tools they need to provide care throughout the current situation and beyond.
Hospitals and healthcare are on everyone’s minds right now. Supporting these essential services in communities across our region will help us weather this storm while maintaining the high quality healthcare that everyone in our community deserves. The Hospital Foundations in Wingham, Listowel, Clinton and Seaforth all extend a big thank you to the Brussels Optimist Club for their ongoing commitment.
