On Wednesday, May 8, 2019, the Royal Bank of Canada presented the Clinton Public Hospital with funding to support nursing education.  Building on the ongoing commitment to support healthcare and nursing, RBC has announced a $90,000 donation to be shared among various hospitals in the Grey, Bruce, Wellington, Huron, Perth and Dufferin Counties.  These donations will fund training programs and educational opportunities that will allow nurses to provide leading-edge care to the communities they serve.

“A community is only as healthy as its people, which is why our rural hospitals are so important. That’s why we’re so proud to present this $5,000 cheque to the Clinton Public Hospital Foundation as part of our larger $90,000 commitment to healthcare in local communities,” said Dan Woods, Regional Vice President of Central Shores, RBC. “Since this charitable initiative began in 2009, we’ve donated $780,000 to support the future of nursing through educational programs in Grey, Bruce, Wellington, Huron, Perth and Dufferin Counties.”

This is the second year that the Clinton Public Hospital has received this grant from RBC.  Last year the funding was used towards nursing staff education in detecting the early warning signs of sepsis.  The Clinton Public Hospital is very grateful to be receiving this funding again this year.
