Representatives from the Sydenham District Hospital Auxiliary presented a cheque yesterday for $10,000 to the Foundation of Chatham-Kent Health Alliance (CKHA) in support of the $6.9 million Diagnostic Imaging Equipment Renewal Campaign.  To date, more than $5.6 million has been raised for this important campaign that will support the purchase of 18 new pieces of equipment for the CKHA Chatham and Wallaceburg sites.

 This generous donation from the Sydenham District Hospital Auxiliary was made possible through various fundraising initiatives coordinated by the Auxiliary, including proceeds from the Serendipity Gift Shop located at CKHA, Wallaceburg site.

“There have been lots of positive changes occurring at the hospital and we wanted to be a part of that success, “ says Pat Brett, President, Sydenham District Hospital Auxiliary. “We are looking forward to doing even more to assist the Foundation in equipment purchases in the near future.”

“I am thrilled to announce this generous donation from the ladies of the Sydenham Auxiliary,” says Mary Lou Crowley, Executive Director, Foundation of CKHA. “These funds are supporting the purchase of two new ultrasounds for CKHA’s Wallaceburg site, and is a wonderful way to kick off what is sure to be an excellent 2018 in healthcare.
