Wingham Hospital Receives Grant From IPM

Wingham | by Peter Jackson  

$20,000 is going towards upgrades to oncology department.


Huron County's only cancer treatment facility is enjoying a financial windfall, thanks to a successful event held two years ago.

The Wingham and District Hospital has received a $20 thousand grant from the 2017 International Plowing Match executive committee.

The 2017 International Plowing Match executive committee is showing its generosity with a $20 thousand grant to Wingham and District Hopsital.

The facility's oncology department came in line for the grant, as the committee winds down 18 months after the 100th IPM was held near Walton.

The gift is one of four grants handed out to organizations throughout Huron County.

2017 IPM Chair Jacquie Bishop says all families are touched by cancer, whether directly or by knowing someone who suffers from the illness.

The Wingham hospital's oncology ward recently underwent extensive renovation, as part of a facility-wide upgrade.
