It was a perfect day for golf at the 12th annual golf tourney in support of the Kemptville District Hospital Foundation [KDHF]. More importantly, it was the best fundraiser of the year so far for the Foundation.
Thanks to the many amazing sponsors, donors, volunteers, auction bidders, and 50/50 ticket buyers, the Foundation raised $44,000. These funds will be used towards the purchase of a new CT scan for KDH. The Hospital recently received approval from the Ontario Government to operate a CT scan at KDH.
The Municipality of North Grenville and the United Counties of Leeds and Grenville have both committed $900,000 over 10 years to help build a new suite to house the CT scan. The Foundation will be responsible for raising approximately the $1 million necessary to buy the technology.
Having a CT scan at KDH is an absolute priority for this community. We look forward to working with the community to raise the funds to make this a reality!
The Kemptville District Hospital Foundation is the registered charitable organization that supports Kemptville District Hospital by fundraising for essential medical equipment that the hospital’s care teams need to care for patients. Government funding alone cannot supply all the equipment needed; KDH depends on the generosity of community donors to fund lifesaving equipment. Community support enabled the hospital to open its doors in 1960 and remains at the heart of KDH.
Donations to the KDHF support the skilled and compassionate care that is happening every day inside KDH’s state-of-the-art facility. www.kdhfoundation.ca.
