OSMH Gets $1 Million for NICU

Orillia | by Ken Hashizume  
The funding from the County goes towards the completed $2.7 Million project.


Orillia Soldiers' Memorial Hospital is receiving some funding from County of Simcoe.

$1 Million is being donated towards the hospital's $2.7 Million Neonatal Intensive Care Unit that opened last year.

The funding is part of the County's 15-year, $45 Million commitment towards capital projects at hospitals in Simcoe County.

OSMH President and CEO Pat Campbell says they were in a position to provide the documents to show that the project was completed.

She says that enabled the County to release the funding to the hospital and is pleased to see the County continue to support the hospital.

Campbell says the focus of the OSMH Foundation will now be towards obtaining a CT scanner for the unit.

She says that is a piece of equipment that is used extensively and is about to reach its end of usefulness.

Simcoe County Warden Gerry Marshall was on hand for Wednesday's announcement.

Marshall says he is glad the County is able to donate the money.

He says he especially likes the process where hospital CEOs decide how the money should be spent and not the politicians.
