  Community Organization of the Year

The Pembroke Regional Hospital Foundation recently won the Upper Ottawa Valley Chamber of Commerce’s Community Organization of the Year Award! The award recognizes “a non-profit group or organization that through its work or a unique special project has generated community pride and has had a significant impact in the Upper Ottawa Valley.” Part of the criteria include that “the organization will have shown a continuing active interest in the welfare of the people of the Upper Ottawa Valley through fundraising for a community cause”, and “improves the quality of life.”

Receiving the award were PRHF Board of Directors members Kelly Hollihan, Bob Holmes, and Donor Relations Coordinator Greg Junop. Bob Holmes spoke to the audience and thanked the community for their support, and outlined the progress of the PRHF’s current campaign, MRI: Image Matters.

  An Office and Home for Charity

(Pembroke) – Drs. Ah Yin Eng and Wen Mei Pan, prominent community leaders donated their former home/commercial building to the Pembroke Regional Hospital Foundation in support of MRI: Image Matters Campaign, to improve the access to healthcare for all residents of Renfrew County.

Dr. Ah Yin Eng, a life-long vocal proponent of preventative medicine, first began the Esther St. Family Practice in the spring of 1971, and tended to patients until 2011. Dr. Wei Mei Pan began her work as an Anesthesiologist in Pembroke in 1972, and continues to work today in Chronic Pain Management at the Pembroke Regional Hospital. They have four children; Susan, David, Helen and Arthur that grew up in this area and now live away.

“Pembroke has been our home for a very long time. While this gift is transferred through the hospital foundation, it is really a gift to our community family. Our former and current patients, our friends our neighbours and everyone living in the Champlain Region will benefit when our MRI is up and running,” shared Dr. Eng.  find out more


(Pembroke) – Pembroke artist Helen Schruder and the Pembroke Regional Hospital Foundation have come together to create a special gift to support the MRI: Image Matters Campaign this holiday season.

Residents have the opportunity to give the gift of MRI this Christmas to their friends and loved ones. When a donation is made as a Christmas gift, the foundation will send a signed ‘Deep in December’ by Helen Schruder card to the recipient with a personal message letting them know that a donation has been made to the MRI campaign in their honour.

A self-taught artist, Schruder painted ‘Deep in December’ especially for the campaign. “Painting has always come naturally to me, since I was 10 or 11 years old, and it’s very special that I can share this gift and support an important cause.” says Schruder. Most of Schruder’s pieces are nature based but her Children Series remains her favourite. “I love paining children and thought building a snowman really captures the holiday spirit.” Past contributors for the beloved series have included artists Susan Blakeney and Barbara Blackstein. The ‘Deep in December’ painting will be part of the silent auction to purchase at the 2014 Valentine’s Dance held by the Foundation in February 2014.
