Funding the purchase of two vital signs monitors
MOUNT FOREST, ON, Dec. 17, 2014 /CNW/ - The Redevelopment of the Emergency Department and Ambulatory Care at North Wellington Health Care–Louise Marshall Hospital is one step closer to reality thanks in part to a $12,000 donation by Economical Insurance, one of Canada's leading providers of home, auto and business insurance. The donation to Always Here for You Campaign of The Mount Forest Louise Marshall Hospital Foundation (the Foundation) was made in association with Coburn Insurance Brokers Ltd. of Mount Forest.
"At Economical, we appreciate the vital role Louise Marshall Hospital plays in the community and are pleased to support the Redevelopment campaign with funds to acquire two vital signs monitors," said Robert Gow, Economical's vice-president of sales and distribution for Ontario.
"We are grateful to Economical Insurance for this generous gift that will enhance emergency care as well as outpatient services at the hospital in clinics, day surgery, oncology, and other areas," said Jane Ford, development officer for the Foundation. "It is through donations like this that we will reach our campaign fundraising goal and see a new and fully-equipped Emergency Department and Ambulatory Care services at our hospital. This is not a luxury. It's a necessity."
"Coburn Insurance is proud to be associated with Economical's significant contribution towards the health and wellbeing of the people in our community," said Jeff Coburn, principal at Coburn Insurance Brokers Ltd. "Having represented Economical for more than 100 years, we know firsthand the difference their community giving program makes in communities all across Canada."
"This is the second sizeable gift Economical has made in Mount Forest this year," said Coburn. "In February, they donated $10,000 to Cancer Patient Services Corp. in order that local cancer patients receive assistance like facilitating transportation to cancer centres as far as Grand River Hospital in Kitchener and Juravinski Cancer Centre in Hamilton."
