OCP Construction has stepped up to help northeastern Ontario hospital foundations.
Officials say the company will match any donation made up to $100,000.
“We are proud to live and work in northeastern Ontario,” said Richard Cousineau, President, OCP Construction Supplies. “During this unprecedented time, we need to come together to make a difference. We strongly support the hard work and dedication of our health care workers and we want to express our gratitude as much as possible.”
“We are so thankful for the health care teams across northeastern Ontario who are working tirelessly around the clock,” Cousineau added. “You are our heroes.”
The $100,000 will be split between four northeastern hospitals. That means the North Bay Regional Health Centre (NBRHC), Health Sciences North in Sudbury, Timmins and District Hospital, and the Sault Area Hospital will each receive $25,000.
“We’re grateful for the leadership of OCP Construction Supplies who are inspiring our communities to support the urgent and evolving needs of caring for patients, including those with COVID-19,” Tammy Morison, President & CEO, NBRHC Foundation. “Together with our partners to the North and West, we can ensure access to advanced medical equipment and the best possible care, close to home.”
Recently the hospital set up a COVID-19 section to its foundation page, where they are accepting monetary donations along with the donation of personal protective equipment. To donate, visit their website.
