ADL Supports Medical Equipment for the QEH

ADL has been a part of the way of life on Prince Edward Island for over 60 years with a long tradition of supporting communities and neighbors.  Today, they continue that tradition by presenting a $7,500 gift to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Foundation.

“ADL is 100% owned by PEI Dairy Farmers. All 165 dairy farmers and their families from all across Prince Edward Island are behind our annual donations to the QEH Foundation – many of whom, like all Islanders, have been touched by the care at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital,” says Abe Buttimer, President, ADL Board of Directors. “Together, we know the importance of supporting our Island’s largest hospital.”

Dr. Barb Flanagan, Chair of the QEH Foundation’s Friends for Life campaign, knows first-hand the impact that support from ADL has on patient care at the QEH.  “We are grateful to ADL and their farmers for their continued support of the QEH Foundation’s annual campaign,” says Flanagan. “It is support like ADL’s that helps us equip the QEH with the most up-to-date medical equipment year after year including the new Solo Step overhead track and harness system used to support patients during all aspects of physical therapy, including sit-to-stand, walking therapy, balance training and climbing stairs.”

ADL has supported the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Foundation for 23 consecutive years. ADL is recognized on the QEH Foundation Donor Wall at the Silver Level ($250,000-$499,999).
