CO-OPERATORS UNDERSTAND THE NEED FOR LOCAL HEALTHCARE
David Miles, owner of the Dundalk and Markdale Cooperators offices along with his District Manager, Regional VP and Advisor Community Fund have stepped up to partner with Centre Grey Health Services Foundation by giving $25,000. to the “Together In Care” campaign for the New Markdale Hospital.
“Co-operators have been making communities safer, healthier and more resilient for decades” said David Miles, Financial Advisor. “As a co-operative, our commitment to communities is an operating principle that inspires us to take action, provide support and raise awareness when there’s a need. Based on this, our donation to the new hospital simply made sense” stated Miles.
“A strong community hospital is only possible with strong community support” stated Paul Stewart, Volunteer of the “Together In Care” Campaign for Centre Grey Health Services Foundation. “The Cooperators have certainly confirmed their commitment to our hospital and our communities through this donation. We are so very grateful to them.”
At just over 78,000 square feet, the new Markdale Hospital will be over twice the size of the current building. It will have an around-the-clock emergency room, along with eight examination and treatment rooms, seven in-patient rooms and a palliative-care room, a procedures room, laboratory, physiotherapy, diagnostic imaging, spiritual care, outpatient clinics, such as memory, mental health and diabetes clinics, a cafe and will house the foundation’s office.
