Collingwood – November 30, 2016 – Reinhart Foods has come forward once again with an impressive philanthropic donation to the Collingwood G&M Hospital Foundation. The family owned organization made a significant investment in surgical safety at the Collingwood G&M Hospital. On Wednesday, November 30th Reinhart’s committed to a $25,000 pledge to be paid over 5 years to facilitate the National Surgical Quality Improvement Program (NSQIP).
The NSQIP is an internationally recognized program, designed to measure and improve the quality of surgical care. It uses data collected from surgical cases to best understand the practices that improve safety and healthy outcomes after surgery. A good example of one practice is the use warm blankets to wrap a patient before they go into surgery. Data shows that warming a patient prior to surgery reduces the risk of cardiac arrest and infection.
Reinhart Foods has been a leading benefactor to the Collingwood G&M Hospital since 1986, contributing over $94,000 in donations since then. The organization has always been known as a philanthropic leader in Southern Georgian Bay and once again they have demonstrated their leadership. Their generous support will help patients requiring surgical care for years to come.
“Reinhart Foods has been very proud of its association with the Collingwood G&M Hospital over many years, and now looks forward to supporting the NSQIP program. We are most impressed with the hospital’s ongoing progressive approach to patient healthcare. At Reinhart community matters, and we are happy to contribute and participate in its growth and wellbeing,” states Tom Singer, President, Reinhart Foods Limited.
The changes made through NSQIP are decreasing post-surgical pain, speeding up healing and over all saving lives in our community.
The Collingwood G&M Hospital Foundation would like to sincerely thank Reinhart Foods for their continued vision and support!
