Cambridge & North Dumfries Community Awards
Congratulations to everyone recognized at the 4th annual Cambridge & North Dumfries Community Awards. Our hospital had a strong presence at the ceremonies, which took place at the Dunfield Theatre, Nov. 28. It was a night that seemed directed to our Foundation. They won for best Marketing for last year's (...and the past 27 yrs) Trees of Caring campaign.
The next award was earned by our friends at Work for A Cure. They have almost reached their goal of $500K for the hospital!
Next, our very own Executive Director Lisa Short was recognized when the Cambridge Community Foundation won in the category Not-For-Profit - Under 10 Employees. As an aside, Lisa was also co-host of the event with Chamber President Greg Durocher and did a great job, highlighting CMHF activities and our current fundraising efforts.
Finally, past Board of Directors and CMHF Board member Bob Cunningham was honoured for lifetime achievement. Thanks so much for keeping our community strong and vibrant! Click here for the list of all winners.
Our very own Phil Meighan, Ambassador extraordinaire, was awarded the Cambridge Celebrates Canada 150 Volunteer Award.

Phil was awarded a special Canada 150 copper pin, minted from the roof of Parliament, was featured in Snap’d and got his photo taken with Bryan May. A complete list of winners will be published in January to congratulate and thank all monthly winners for their contributions to our community. Congratulations Phil!
Quality and Accuracy in Pathology
Congratulations to our Pathology Team on a very successful Quality Management Program Facility Report. This report is issued on an annual basis and provides an overview of the quality of pathology in hospitals and private laboratories across Ontario as measured by a set of 10 recommended standards.
This report demonstrates that the department of pathology at CMH is 100% compliant with the implementation of the recommended standards. This is a wonderful demonstration of the strong culture of quality and quality improvement that exists at CMH ensuring that patients receive accurate and timely pathology results. Another great example of ensuring the best possible patient care!
