On Sunday December 18th we met with a young woman who wanted to share her story (below) of the care she received over the summer in the Emergency Department at the Smiths Falls site of the Perth and Smiths Falls District Hospital.
Her and her family wanted to thank the hospital and paramedic staff for saving her life as well as make a donation to our Foundation.

This was Amanda’s first baby, and she was scared and unsure of herself, but the nurses, she says, were so competent, calm and kind, and made her feel comfortable and cared for “no matter what I looked like!” said Amanda.

“I use the hospital, so it seems to me, if you use something and they don’t charge you, you should give something back. In return I get the personal satisfaction of knowing I’ve contributed to my community.”
