The congregation of St. Paul’s Presbyterian Church presented the Kemptville District Hospital with a cheque for $5,400 to go toward the purchase of a CT scanner.
The money was raised as part of the Church’s annual winter/spring mission project that focuses on causes important to the local community.
“Our original goal was to raise $2,500,” said Mission Committee Chair David Carmichael. “The fact that we more than doubled that speaks not only to the generosity of the congregation, but to the great need to have this sort of technology available in North Grenville.”
Currently, the Kemptville District Hospital only offers x-ray and ultrasound services. This means that patients requiring CT scans must travel to Ottawa, Brockville or Winchester.
