Big Bucks For Orillia Soldiers’ Memorial Hospital

Local Lions Club donates $10K

Soldiers’ Memorial Hospital in Orillia has received a $10,000 shot in the arm from the local Lions Club. The money will go to the hospital’s Electronic Medical Record project. It’s aimed at improving service to patients, while saving doctors’ time and reducing the potential for errors. “We chose to support the Electronic Medical Project because it impacts everyone at the hospital”, said long time Orillia Lions Club member, Alan Smale. Scheduled to Go Live in early June, the EMR will replace most of the manual systems currently used for gathering, sharing and storing patient information. Fundraising for the multi-year, multi-million dollar project began in 2014.
