Last month, the residents of eQuinelle held a community garage sale to raise money for the Kemptville District Hospital. Last week, a cheque for $1,500 raised through the sale was presented on behalf of the eQuinelle community to Margret Norenberg, Chair of the KDH Foundation.
The funds raised by the eQuinelle residents will go to purchasing much needed equipment for the benefit of the community of North Grenville and beyond. The KDH Foundation has raised over $12M in support of KDH since 1979, the most recent example being the $261,554 to KDH to purchase a state of the art microscope for the operating room at KDH.
In collaboration with the Ottawa Hospital, KDH is now performing spinal fusion discectomies. This new microscope provides high image definition that is essential for these types of intricate surgeries and having this microscope will allow KDH to expand its orthopedic services.
The support of community members such as the residents at eQuinelle is an essential part of the work done by KDH, and their contribution is valued.
