The Bobcaygeon Legion has donated $5,000 to the Ross Memorial Hospital Foundation to support the hospital’s new clinical information system.
Members of the Royal Canadian Legion Bobcaygeon Branch 239 have supported the hospital for the past 30 years, according to a media release from the foundation.
Their donations have helped fund modernization projects in the Dr. Gargi Bhatia Family Birthing Centre, the construction of the dialysis unit, and critical acquisitions in the operating suites, laboratory, intensive care unit and diagnostic Imaging.
The latest donation will support the hospital’s clinical information system, part of a digital transformation that connects bedside medical equipment and life-saving technology to patients’ medical records and makes them accessible to care providers and patients wherever they are.
“This exceptional gift from the Bobcaygeon Legion Branch 239 to the Our Best To You holiday appeal is just the latest gesture of generosity in their long history of community support,” says Ross Memorial Hospital Foundation CEO Erin Coons.
“Service organizations including the Royal Canadian Legion continue to have a profound impact on the Ross. We’re grateful for their interest in ongoing efforts to modernize and enhance patient care in their community.”
