The funds come from a five-year, $100,000 commitment that Bruce Power is making to the foundation to assist with health care in the Chesley and district community.

“Among the most important issues that families face is health care, and we believe it’s our responsibility to help address the needs of our workers and the residents who live in our rural communities,” said Mike Rencheck, Bruce Power President and CEO. “We’re extremely pleased that our support allows the Chesley and District Health Services Foundation to make sure it’s properly equipped to take care of the hospital’s patients.”

Lindsay Manery, Board Chair of the Chesley and District Health Services Foundation, said the donation – $20,000 annually over the next five years – will make a far-reaching difference in the community.

“The direct impact of Bruce Power’s donation of $100,000 is measurable in the difference it will make for the physicians, nurses and patients at the Chesley Hospital,” Manery said. “This generous gift is being used to fund in total the purchase of central cardiac monitors. The Chesley and District Health Services Foundation is the recipient of the donation; the community is the beneficiary.

“We are all very grateful to Bruce Power for its very tangible support of health-care services in this area.”
