Local healthcare officials, doctors, nurses, patients and volunteers will join us throughout the day today on Lake 88 for our 3rd live 12-hour fundraising ‘Radiothon’ in support of our local hospitals and community health centres.

We’re be raising funds for equipment and programs to give our local healthcare partners the tools they need to continue their excellent service in our region.

The list of needs is long.  The Urology Department at the Perth and Smiths Falls District Hospital requires new surgical equipment for the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the kidney and bladder at a cost of over $225,000.

The Almonte General Hospital & Fairview Manor Foundation needs a ‘Point of Care’ I-STAT analyzer to give Physicians immediate results to blood work and fundraising continues for AGH’s new CT Scan unit.

The Carleton Place District Memorial Hospital requires more than 100 pieces of patient care equipment totaling approximately 2 million dollars – for use throughout the hospital including the new Emergency Department building.

And support is needed for program and services provided by Country Roads Community Health Centre in Portland and Westport, ConnectWell Community Health in Lanark and Carleton Place, and Rideau Community Health Services in Smiths Falls and Merrickville.

Let’s give our Front Line Workers the tools they need to deliver the care you deserve.
