WINCHESTER — They did it again! The BMO Bank of Montreal team in Winchester recently stopped by Winchester District Memorial Hospital — socially distanced of course — to deliver another gift of $2,500. In 2018, the local BMO branch pledged $7,500 to support health care close to home. This latest donation is being directed to the WDMH Foundation’s General Equipment Fund toward the purchase of equipment such as a new X-ray machine.

BMO’s other two $2,500 gifts helped to support the purchase of three new electrosurgical generators for the operating room and a new echocardiogram machine for WDMH’s cardiac care program.

“At BMO, we truly understand the importance of local community support,” noted Omar Abouzaher, Regional Vice President, Ottawa East and Western Quebec Market. “We are proud to support the WDMH Foundation’s General Equipment Fund for the purchase of medical equipment and we extend our very best wishes for the campaign’s every success.”

“In the last three years, over 10,000 patients have had at least one X-ray at WDMH,” explains Cindy Peters, Manager of Direct Mail and Events. “We are so grateful to donors like BMO for helping the Foundation purchase equipment that is not funded by the government. What a team!”
