Fenelon Falls Rotary Club donates $10,000 to Ross Memorial Hospital

KAWARTHA LAKES-The Fenelon Falls Rotary Club has dontaed $10,000 to Ross Memorial Hospital in Lindsay.

The gift will support the Comfort and Care Holiday Appeal for new bedside intravenous (IV) pumps.

Members presented the $10,000 donation to Erin Coons, RMH Foundation CEO at the club’s meeting on November 28th.

“The IV pumps come with special safety software and cost, on average, $5,000 each. This gift from the Fenelon Rotarians will help us to buy two IV pumps and impact the care of countless patients in the years ahead. We’re so grateful to the Rotary Club of Fenelon Falls for choosing to support the Ross during its diamond anniversary,” said Erin Coons.

Officals say almost every admitted patient at Ross Memorial Hospital relies on bedside IV pumps to safely receive medication, fluids and nutrition. The hospital must replace its fleet of 170 IV pumps, which are used 24/7/365.

For 75 years, the Rotary Club of Fenelon Falls has supported causes both local and around the globe.
