$5,000 more for MRI campaign

The Pembroke and Petawawa District Community Foundation has come forward to make a financial contribution of $5,000 toward the Pembroke Regional Hospital Foundation’s MRI: Image Matters Campaign.

“The Pembroke Regional Hospital is the regional health facility for the entire Ottawa Valley,” said Matt Bradley, chairman of the Pembroke and Petawawa District Community Foundation. “As an institution that will assist with the health needs of the majority of Pembroke and Petawawa citizens, it makes sense for us to contribute financial support to its long term development and success.”

The Pembroke and Petawawa District Community Foundation was created to provide financial support to local charities, groups, and organizations. The foundation assists its donors by giving back to the community, and directs its funds toward the areas of greatest need.

“This contribution by the Pembroke and Petawawa District Community Foundation helps to highlight the importance of this campaign,” said Nancy Warren, PRHF executive director. “Having an MRI will enhance the services that our hospital provides, enhancing the quality of healthcare available to Ottawa Valley residents. Having the Community Foundation as a supporter of this campaign reminds us of that.”

Over the past decade, the PRHF has contributed over $9 million toward expansion and development projects at the Pembroke Regional Hospital. Currently, the PRHF is undertaking a $4.5 million fundraising campaign to bring an MRI to the Ottawa Valley. With MRI wait times in Eastern Ontario nearly double the provincial average, this diagnostic tool cannot come soon enough.

For more information, to make a gift to the campaign, or to volunteer at an event, please contact the foundation office at 613-732-2811 ext. 7408 or email
