NGH Foundation Rehab Department is the successful recipient of $16,400.

On May 8, 2019 100 Women Who Care Norfolk selected NGH Foundation Rehab Dept as the recipient of $16,400 (presented by member Jennifer Walker).

The money will be spent on purchasing new equipment which delivers the latest in technology and maximizes the rehabilitation process.  The two top items on their wish list are “S.A.R.A.” – Standing and Raising Aid and a specially designed bike which promotes safe movement of arms and legs.  The Rehabilitation Department is also in need of additional wheelchairs and walkers.  The population of Norfolk County can take comfort in knowing that our local hospital is investing in the best equipment on the market.

This brings the total donations since May 2014 to just over $330,000…supporting 21 local charities.

Pictured l to r are the members who presented on behalf of 3 different charities: Jennifer Walker presented on behalf of Norfolk General Hospital Foundation – Rehab Department; Betty Ann Carty who presented on behalf of Christmas Panorama Farm Market; and Angie Grice who presented on behalf of Puurfect Companions.
