John Hope, owner of Re/Max Eastern Realty in Peterborough, Ont. and his local agents have donated $100,000 to the Peterborough Regional Health Centre Foundation in support of surgical innovation at PRHC.
Hope donated $50,000, which was then matched by the sales reps in the office. The money will be used to update one operating room with new minimally invasive surgical tools and technology. It’s one of nine rooms the PRHC Foundation has committed to funding through community support.
“The opportunity to support our community in this endeavour was very appealing to me,” says Hope. “Once my commitment was known throughout Re/Max Eastern Realty, our sales associates and staff created the challenge to match that commitment. I am extremely proud of everyone for taking on such a challenge and fulfilling it.”
PRHC Foundation president and CEO Lesley Heighway says investment in this kind of state-of-the-art equipment goes hand in hand with the hospital’s ability to offer world-class surgical care right in their own community.
