As a local property development and management group, focused on enhancing the quality of life for Kawartha Lakes residents, the owners of The Kawartha Group recognize the important role of the local hospital in the community.
Eager to support the delivery of exceptional care at the Ross Memorial, the team reached out to the RMH Foundation to learn about priority needs. When they learned the community’s Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) machine must be replaced and is the focus of the Foundation’s upcoming Holiday Appeal, they were thrilled to put their support behind a project they know will impact patients of all ages.
The Kawartha Group’s owners James Greig, Elliott Penner, Jim McGee and Doug Blanchard, are helping to fund the cost of a new MRI with a $10,000 gift to the RMH Foundation.
“We couldn’t be happier to connect The Kawartha Group and their interest in supporting hospital needs at the Ross with our upcoming appeal to help fund the community’s new MRI,” said Erin Coons, RMH Foundation CEO. “The business community in the Kawarthas knows the importance residents place on high-quality health care, and they recognize the Ross at the heart of that service. The Kawartha Group is a wonderful example of the important role the business community plays in inpatient care.”
Our community’s MRI impacts lives every day, helping physicians at the Ross diagnose conditions such as stroke, Multiple Sclerosis and breast cancer. MRI also provides the most
definitive diagnoses for bone, soft tissue, and joint disorders. It’s a crucial component of local patient care.
In late November, the RMH Foundation will be mailing letters, to households throughout the City of Kawartha Lakes, to highlight the need for a new MRI. Please watch your mailbox or visit www.rmh.org/foundation for more information about the Make This Your Moment holiday appeal.
