(Pembroke) At the 23rd annual Cobden and District Civitan Club’s golf tournament, 203 participants helped raise over $12,000 for regional health care – with $3,000 gifted to the Pembroke Regional Hospital Foundation’s Cutting Edge Campaign.
“As a club, we value and appreciate the quality of care and the expertise provided by the Pembroke Regional Hospital to residents of Renfrew County,” said Cobden and District Civitan Club president, Fred Laderoute.
Having donated over $62,000 to the PRH to date, the Cobden and District Civitan Club has been a driving force for advancing health care. Their contributions have helped enable the Pembroke Regional Hospital expansion in 2005, the purchase of a new CT scanner in 2010 and an MRI in 2015. Their latest donation to the Cutting Edge Campaign will support the Regional Orthopaedic Program and surgical floor upgrades.
“The Cobden and District Civitan Club has been a dedicated supporter since our Hospital Foundation’s founding in 2002,” said Dr. Tom Hurley, PRH Chief of Staff.
“Thanks to community-minded groups like the Civitan Club, as well as generous individuals and businesses, we can all be very proud that local families can access the medical diagnostic tools and treatments they need, closer to home,” Dr. Hurley continued.
Donations towards the Cutting Edge Campaign are welcome at any time and can be made online or by contacting the Foundation Office at 613-732-2811 ext. 7408.
