WPSHC Love Our Hospital 50/50 Lottery’s 1st draw is on Feb 28th

The West Parry Sound Health Centre’s (WPSHC) Love Our Hospital 50/50 Lottery is officially online.

Christine McKernan, Executive Director at the WPSHC Foundation says the West Parry Sound Community continues to amaze her with how generous residents are when it comes to supporting the local hospital. As a result, she says the foundation wanted to offer a fun opportunity for community members to continue their support.

“This Lottery is a win-win. Our hospital and community will win with new revenue to enhance patient care and patient outcome, and you could be the winner of our jackpot,” she says. McKernan says the jackpot is growing fast, adding that over the lottery’s first seven days, the pot has already gone past $4,200. She says you can just imagine how big it can reach by the lottery’s first draw date on February 28th.

McKernan says what’s great about this lottery is that all its proceeds stay in the region. She says the money will be used to enhance healthcare here in our own community.

“It stays right here and this year through the support from our community we’ve been able to enhance our Pulmonary Testing program, our Cardiac Care program as well as our rehab program. These are all programs that are such a huge benefit,” she says. 

McKernan says tickets can only be purchased online, “unfortunately under the license that we’ve been given to run the lottery, tickets must be purchased online but you can go to the library or ask a friend or neighbour or family member to purchase tickets on your behalf,” she adds.

McKernan gives a big thank you to the West Parry Sound region for all they do to show their love for the hospital. “We know that caring never stops, so the needs of the hospital never stop and we just want to make sure that we have the latest equipment and technologies to take care of our community,” she says.
