Auxilary Continues Fundraising Tradition For Wingham Hospital

The Wingham and District Hospital is getting a number of specialized mattresses, thanks to the ongoing support of the hospital’s Auxilary members.

The Auxiliary has donated $11,000 for the purchase of four of the pressure-relief mattress on the in-patient floor.      These mattresses improve the healing and long-term care comfort for patients.

The Auxiliary plans to raise money for two more mattresses.
