“The hospital has always been near and dear to our hearts,” says Jenn Scates, Vice-President of Marketing for Central Smith Creamery. “We are so fortunate to have a state-of-the-art, accredited hospital right in our community. The doctors and nurses are so committed and passionate about helping people get better. This is our way of saying thank you for the great care!”

With all proceeds from the day being donated to the PRHC Foundation, ice cream eaters were encouraged to say thank you for great care to the doctors and nurses at Peterborough Regional Health Centre by purchasing a $2 tribute card at the checkout, among other fundraising activities at the event. A whopping 1,500 tributes were generated.
On Thursday, July 25th, staff at Peterborough Regional Health Centre were in for a real treat when Central Smith arrived in the cafeteria over lunch hour to scoop free ice cream. The local ice cream company wanted to personally say thank the doctors and nurses who work tirelessly to deliver great care to the community.
