Walker Aggregates Ontario is first company to donate to hospital renovation

Walker Aggregates of Clearview Township in Ontario was the first local company to donate money for renovations at Collingwood’s General & Marine Hospital, Simcoe.com reports.

Walker has committed $60,000 towards a $1million hospital renovation campaign, which will improve efficiency and maximize space in the hospital’s Emergency Department.

“After a tour of the emergency department, we knew right away that investing in this project would ensure that our community has access to the best medical care when they need it most urgently,” Walker Aggregates executive vice-president Ken Lucyshyn said.

Demand for emergency medical treatment in Collingwood has grown during the past 10 years, but the emergency department has been the same since 1999. According to Ministry of Health and Long Term Care standards, the Emergency Department is less than half the size it should be to treat the more than 33,000 patients it sees annually. A re-development project is part of future plans, but there is a need to invest in the current facility.

“Almost 350,000 patients will be treated in our emergency department over the next 10 years. We are grateful to Walker Aggregates for its vision in recognizing the importance of initiating this project,” Dr. Kylie Bosman, chief of the emergency department, tells the news agency. “It certainly is a forward thinking company, and we are very fortunate to have the support of this organization as a hospital and as a community.”
