CPDMH Emergency Room (ER) Expansion
The Foundation's Commitment to ER Expansion
Formed in 1994, the Carleton Place & District Memorial Hospital (CPDMH) Foundation is dedicated to raising funds for CPDMH in support of providing the best healthcare possible to the residents of Carleton Place and the surrounding communities. With that in the mind, the CPDMH Foundation supports the Hospital’s desire to expand and improve the current facility with an Emergency Department Redevelopment Project and recorded its unanimous commitment to the project during a Board of Directors meeting on June 17, 2015. At that time, the Board passed a motion that states “The Carleton Place & District Memorial Hospital Foundation officially records its support for the new Emergency Department project as required by the Ministry of Health by committing to raise the community share of the proposal – estimated to be $1.76 million – be approved.”
On October 28, 2016, the Honourable Dr. Eric Hoskins, Minister of Health and Long-Term Care, visited CPDMH to announce the approval of a brand new Emergency Department for patients and families in Carleton Place, Beckwith and surrounding communities. Read the media announcement.
The Foundation has the utmost confidence in the community’s ability to raise the funds necessary for the project and will take the required steps to lead a fundraising campaign to raise the community’s share of the funds needed to bring the redevelopment into fruition once a green light for the project has been received.
