$10,000 grant is going to the hospitals Paediatric Unit

The Paediatric Unit at Orillia Soldiers’ Memorial Hospital is receiving a $10,000 grant.

The cash injection is on behalf of the Sandra Schmirler Foundation, named in honour of nationally recognized curler and Olympic gold medalist Sandra Schmirler, who died of cancer in 2000.

The grant will help fund a Central Patient Monitoring System (CPMS) to benefit the hospital’s youngest patients and their families. Brittany Wilson, Development Officer with the OSMH Foundation says the grant will help transform the way their Paediatric Department can monitor sick children in their care.

The Sandra Schmirler Foundation has given a total of $95,000 in support of Soldiers’ Neonatal and Paediatrics programs since 2015.
