Omemee Swans support community health with MRI donation


Communications Specialist RMH

KAWARTHA LAKES: The Omemee Swans know to support our community by fundraising, through their events and causes which benefit those living in and around Omemee and those which help everyone in the Kawartha Lakes.

During their ’Season of Giving Back,’ the Swans have been making donations to support children and education projects, food security efforts, women’s safety, and community gardens.

On May 31st, Jill Cockerell, Kathy Woodbeck and Joyce VandenBroek of the Omemee Swans visited Ross Memorial Hospital to present a $1,000 gift, to help fund the community’s new, leading-edge MRI, which arrived at the Hospital on Monday. This advanced technology replaces the 12-year-old MRI which was also funded 100 percent by donors.

“The Omemee Swans came together only two short years ago, and already they’re having a visible impact on their community and beyond,” said Erin Coons, RMH Foundation CEO. “It is only with the generosity of kind people, like the members of the Omemee Swans, we can equip our Hospital with the best medical equipment and life-saving technology. We’re incredibly grateful.”

Magnetic Resonance Imaging helps physicians confidently diagnose disease and injury in the brain, spine, joints, breasts and organs. It’s a vital tool for detecting herniated or bulging disks, arthritic changes, and cancer. More than 500 patient exams are scanned at the Ross every month.
