Our Chosen Charity


Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital Foundation

The PECMH Foundation is an independent, charitable organization governed by a board of community volunteers. The Foundation was established in 1985 to encourage and co-ordinate a continuing high level of support for the Hospital. Donations from individuals, corporations, and local organizations share the belief that community participation makes a stronger health care system. Thanks to the continued generosity of donors, the Foundation is able to provide funding for medical equipment, buildings and/or renovations to our Hospital.

The government DOES NOT pay for new medical equipment. It has always been the responsibility of the community, through the Foundation’s fundraising efforts, to fund medical equipment needs.


Since 1999, the Foundation has purchased over $3.2M worth of medical equipment
such as:

  • Ultrasound machines
  • Defibrillators
  • Vital Signs Monitors
  • Stretchers
  • Colonocopes
  • ECG machine

Most recently the Foundation provided over $1.1 million dollars for the redevelopment of the Diagnostic Imaging and Emergency Departments.

Continued support is paramount to the updating of medical equipment and building enhancements in our Hospital. To discuss your giving options, please call the Foundation office at 613-476-1008 ext. 4503 or e-mail
