SUMMERSIDE, P.E.I. – Henry Woodard didn’t always have a lot to give, but the care he received at the Prince County Hospital in recent years left him thinking he wanted to do something to make an impact in his community.

Woody, as he is known to friends, spent many years in the moving business – a vocation he loved, but one that proved hard on his body in the long-term. Those bodily strains meant various stays at PCH.

He marvels at the care he has received as a patient.

“There’s no better place to give than the place that helped me so much,” he remarked in a recent interview with the PCH Foundation staff.

As thanks for that help, Woody recently made a generous donation of $5,000 that he and his wife Cathy presented to the PCH Foundation.

“I don’t have a lot of money, but I have a lot of heart. There was a nurse that made my day every day I was in (PCH). There are lots of nice people in this world and we don’t realize it,” added Woodard.

Woody’s gift will support much needed medical equipment at the Prince County Hospital Foundation.

There is still time to support the 2017 Vital Signs equipment appeal as Woody has. Donations can be made at pchcare.com and at the PCH Foundation office in the hospital lobby.
