Sweetheart Brunch raises $4,000 for KDH CT scanner campaign

The Kemptville District Hospital (KDH) Foundation is one step closer to crossing a CT scanner off its list of needed medical equipment. 

KDH Foundation staff are thanking the local Knights of Columbus chapter for donating the proceeds from its annual “Sweetheart Brunch.” 

$4,000 was raised in total at the event, held Sunday morning at the North Grenville Municipal Centre. 

The money is being put towards the Foundation’s “Crossroads Campaign,” with the goal of buying a CT scanner for the hospital.

CT scanners allow doctors to check patients’ bones and organs for internal injuries and for diseases like cancer. 

Staff members say adding a scanner to the hospital will allow patients who need one to get the care they need at home, rather than having to drive all the way to Ottawa. 

As of November, the foundation had raised roughly $800,000 for the initiative, with a goal of bringing in $2.2-million. 

We’ve contacted KDH Foundation Coordinator Kristy Carriere for an interview to learn more about the current state of the campaign.
