A little break for the pandemic didn’t slow Shroomfest supporters down. In May, they came together again for an evening of fun and fundraising. The result? $91,500 was raised for 32 different community organizations, including $5,000 for the WDMH Foundation General Equipment Fund.  We are so grateful!

The funds will be directed to the General Equipment Fund to support WDMH’s new electronic health record system, called Epic. It will change how patients are cared for – providing a simpler, more seamless journey through the hospital and the health care system.

Kyle Jones, Clinical & Education Lead for Epic Implementation, was on hand at the cheque presentation to share more details about one of the key benefits of the new system – Single Sign-On: “The new secure software will allow clinicians to use a single tap of their name badge to sign in and out of multiple programs at the same time. They can move from location to location on different computers.  Single Sign On saves providers valuable time so they can focus on patient care.  Thank you for your generous support!”

Justine Plummer, Manager of Direct Mail & Events agrees. “We have such a supportive community, and we are so grateful to everyone who helped to make Shroomfest such as successful event!”
