May 31, 2024 - With every purchase of a Smile Cookie, Tim Hortons patrons are supporting worthy causes in their communities. Ross Memorial Hospital Foundation is honoured to be counted among them. The team is very grateful to restaurant owners Nick and Meaghan Chapman, who chose the Ross to be one of their charity partners during the Smile Cookie campaign that ran April 29 to May 5.

Together with Mark and Nancy Hutchinson, Operations Manager and General Manager, Nick and Meaghan Chapman presented a cheque for $19,054.55 to Erin Coons, RMH Foundation CEO and Tim Shauf, chair of the Foundation’s WE ARE THE ROSS capital campaign.

“We want to thank everyone who made an effort to support the Smile Cookie campaign at Nick and Meaghan’s restaurants in Lindsay,” said Tim Shauf. “Your purchase is helping our hometown hospital provide first rate care. These funds are supporting the highest priority needs at the Ross — critical investments that are not funded by the government.”  

The highest priority investments at Ross Memorial include the future expansion and modernization of the hospital’s Emergency Department and ICU, the community’s new MRI and CT Scanner, bedside equipment including the new fleet of IV pumps, and the clinical information system that connects patients’ digital health information records to medical technology and bedside tools.

As our population balloons in size, it’s important that our hospital is prepared to meet surging needs by growing services and spaces, and transforming the patient experience,” said Erin Coons, RMH Foundation CEO. “With every business promotion, every fundraising event, and every heartfelt gift, we’re helping the Ross Team provide the best care possible — right now and for years to come.”

Nick and Meaghan Chapman own five Tim Hortons restaurants in Lindsay. They include three on Kent Street West, one at the corner of County Road 36 and Mount Hope Street, and one on Hwy 35 south of Hwy 7.
