X-ray services at the Ross Memorial Hospital get a big boost

KAWARTHA LAKES-From broken bones to pneumonia, the x-ray department at Ross Memorial Hospital performs 37,500 exams per year, helping patients with injuries and illnesses, 24/7.

The job just got easier thanks to a donation from the Kawartha ATV Association.  RMH Foundation was chosen by the Kawartha ATV Association (KATVA) to receive the charity proceeds of it’s annual poker run. The event took place Saturday, June 3rd in Burnt River with 153 registered machines and riders.

KATVA is a community advocate for safe and responsible use of ATVs and trails by all users.

Today, KATVA President Carolyn Richards, KATVA Board Member Jim LaPorte and KATVA volunteer Carolyn Laporte presented a cheque for $8,670 to Erin Coons, RMHF Executive Director. “With this generous donation, the Kawartha ATV Association is supporting the best care for patients of all ages,” said Erin Coons. “We’re very grateful to have their support and wish them safe riding.”

The Association is directing its donations to enhance x-ray services in the Diagnostic Imaging Department.
