CPDMH Emergency Room (ER) Expansion
The Foundation's Commitment to ER Expansion
Formed in 1994, the Carleton Place & District Memorial Hospital (CPDMH) Foundation is dedicated to raising funds for CPDMH in support of providing the best healthcare possible to the residents of Carleton Place and the surrounding communities. With that in the mind, the CPDMH Foundation supports the Hospital’s desire to expand and improve the current facility with an Emergency Department Redevelopment Project and recorded its unanimous commitment to the project during a Board of Directors meeting on June 17, 2015.
On October 28, 2016, the Honourable Dr. Eric Hoskins, Minister of Health and Long-Term Care, visited CPDMH to announce the approval of a brand new Emergency Department for patients and families in Carleton Place, Beckwith and surrounding communities. Read the media announcement.
Stage 2 of planning for the new Emergency Department has now been approved (in June, 2019) by the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care. Stage 3 is the preliminary design phase. During this third phase details about all major components, timelines and costs will be prepared and submitted for approval. Read more about Stage 2 Functional Program approval here.
The Foundation is currently in the 'quiet/leveraging' phase of it's $3 Million campaign for the new Emergency Department ($1.24 Million community share) and needed patient care equipment for the hospital ($1.75 Million).
