Fenelon Lions continue their quest to support the community’s CT Scanner

KAWARTHA LAKES: The Fenelon Falls & District Lions Club members work hard in their volunteer roles to make their community the best it can be. Part of that commitment involves support for their local hospital.
For the past two years, the Lions have focused their fundraising work on helping fund the community’s new Computerized Tomography (CT) Scanner, at Ross Memorial Hospital (RMH). Today, Lions Barry, Susan Tate, Lloyd, and Deb McIntyre visited the Ross, to present a $1,000 donation to Kim Coulter, RMH Foundation Communications Specialist. This gift, the second in a three-year pledge to support local CT imaging, brings the Club’s cumulative giving to the Foundation to $33,500, since 1996.
“With every event and good deed, the Fenelon Lions show they are community champions. They’re also valued members of our donor family at the Ross,” said Kim Coulter. “The $2 million cost of CT Scanner is not covered by government funding. Essential acquisitions, such as this, are not possible without the community’s support through donations to the RMH Foundation. Service clubs, including the Fenelon Falls and District Lions, play an important role in ensuring our Hospital provides the best care possible.”
CT imaging is a critical tool for diagnosing injuries and diseases and for guiding surgeries and cancer treatments. At RMH, the CT team conducts more than 12,000 scans annually.
After ten years and more than 120,000 scans, the Hospital’s second CT Scanner reached the end of its useful life and was replaced last summer.
