Acute Care for the Elderly Unit at Q C H

Ladies and Gentlemen

Most of us look forward to a long life.    Unhappily 
many of us will need hospital care as we age.    
think of many because a couple of years ago, I tried 
to stop a fall, wound up disconnecting the quad 
tendon in my knee and with surgery and physiotherapy 
– I can easily walk again.

The Queensway Carleton Hospital has received a 
substantial Provincial grant and a large donation 
from the Myers Automotive Group for an Acute 
Care for the Elderly facility which will look after 
some thirty patients once it is open.     The QCH 
Acute Care for the Elderly unit requires your 
donation such that it will be there as you age and 
may need its care.   

As the community served by QCH, Western Ottawa’s 
50,000 homes have a target of $1.5 million dollars 
that is $30 per home.    The thirty dollars investment 
in providing future health care within our community 
can return rewards big time later on.

This campaign is asking that you donate what you 
can or what you are able to commit to over the next 
few years.    Whatever the amount, every contribution 
can make the difference in a patient`s health.

You may donate:

Online:   ace.qchfoundation.ca

Or by phone:   613-721-4731

Or by mail:   Queensway Carleton Hospital Foundation                                                                       Acute Care for the Elderly Campaign
                              3045 Baseline Road
                              Ottawa, ON    K2H 8P4

Please remember that the QCH Foundation will 
need the donor`s full name and address information 
in order to issue an official income tax receipt.      
Income tax receipts will be issued for gifts of 
$10 or more.
