Legion grant to assist surgeries at Ross Memorial Hospital

The Ross Memorial Foundation says a recent grant will allow it to purchase a cystoscope for surgical procedures for the urinary tract.

RMH received a grant of $7,500 from the Royal Canadian Legion Ontario Provincial Command Branches and the Ladies’ Auxiliaries Charitable Foundation.

Howie Johnston (Branch 67 President), James Cameron (Brach 67 Third Vice) and Sandra Richardson (Branch 67 Ladies Auxiliary President) presented the grant to Foundation Executive Director Erin Coons.

“The ongoing support of the Ontario Command has impacted patients throughout the Ross Memorial,” stated Coons.

“Their support for important equipment such as the blood bank microscope, an instrument rinsing system and infrared scope, as well as IV pumps has helped the hospital to deliver the best care to local patients. We’re extremely grateful.”

The Ontario Command Branches and Ladies’ Auxiliaries Charitable Foundation is a partnership of the branches of the Royal Canadian Legion and their Auxiliaries in Ontario Command. Branches and Auxiliaries fund the Foundation through activities such as poppy tagging, bingos and raffles. These funds support veterans programs, as well as not-for-profit organizations associated with hospitals and healthcare initiatives
