Winchester District Memorial Hospital (WDMH). Today, we are still providing the care you need close to home.

We are here for you – from childbirth to seniors’ care. WDMH is a hub site for surgery, cancer care, dialysis and cataract services, and offers specialty clinics with visiting specialists from Ottawa hospitals. In this year’s Report to our Community, we are pleased to share just some of the many accomplishments of the past year. Together, we have much to be proud of. O WDMH was awarded Accreditation with Exemplary Standing for high quality patient care and safety – the highest level provided by Accreditation Canada. O For the first time, we were a ‘provincial top performer’ in four key patient areas – according to an Ontario-wide report on patient satisfaction. O We are changing the way we care. Last year, we admitted more patients than ever before, but they didn’t need to stay as long thanks to medical advancements, new technologies and additional supports in the community. We also offer quicker access to specialists and services in areas such as cardiac care, chemotherapy, CT scans and a new sleep lab. O We now have more ways to care. We have introduced new programs in cardiac care, stroke prevention, ear, nose and throat services and expanded telemedicine clinics. And we broke all records as we welcomed 714 babies in our Childbirth Centre. O We continue to work with health and community partners as part of our Centre of Excellence for Rural Health and Education. This ‘health hub’ coordinates services for patients in the hospital, residents in nursing homes, and clients of community services. O And we’re getting the next generation of caregivers ready. Last year, our physicians and staff helped to teach more than 250 students. Upon graduation, many of these students turn their educational opportunity into a career at WDMH. O We continue to move toward an electronic health record that will allow us to consolidate information to support patient care and safety. O One of our priorities is research with a focus on the unique health needs of the rural population. O We received two workplace awards – one regional and one provincial – recognizing a commitment to health and wellness for the more than 600 staff, physicians and volunteers who work at WDMH. O Finally, we are proud to report a balanced budget – despite the challenge of increasing costs and limited government funding. For all of these achievements, it’s a team effort and we’re proud of the results. Together, great things are happening at WDMH and we are ready to do even more for our local communities.

742,000 reasons to say thank you

This past year, the WDMH Foundation transferred close to $700,000 to WDMH to purchase 59 pieces of much-needed equipment not funded by the provincial government. It wouldn’t be possible without the generosity of our donors. Together, we provided a defibrillator, infant warmers, a surgical table, patient monitors, radiography

equipment, state-of-the-art beds, and more. A further $42,000 was transferred to the WDMH Auxiliary for additional equipment purchases. Thank you for your incredible support! To find out how you can help, please visit foundation or call 613-774-2422 ext. 6161

173 smiling faces The WDMH Auxiliary continues to be an integral part of WDMH. Last year, 173 volunteers provided more than 12,000 hours of service - lending a helping hand and providing a comforting smile to everyone who comes through our doors. But that’s not all. Thanks to their fundraising efforts, 53 wireless IV pumps costing $300,000 were purchased. Now they are raising $250,000 more for a portable x-ray machine. We can’t thank them enough. The Auxiliary welcomes new volunteers – join us and make a difference in the lives of WDMH patients. Visit or call 613-774-2422 ext. 6323 for information.
