Giving Tuesday is a movement that began in Canada with the hopes of helping important causes in their fundraising efforts. Our good friends at the Queensway Carleton Hospital are Giving Tuesday participants this year on Tuesday November 29th, and are looking for donations to help complete the community support needed for the new Myers Automotive Acute Care of the Elderly (ACE) Unit at the hospital. We are so happy to see the Myers Automotive ACE Unit opening and preparing to begin accepting patients this November and hope you will help this important unit which will help many patients who need the specialized care the unit provides.

The Myers Automotive Acute Care of the Elderly (ACE) Unit Opens at Queensway Carleton Hospital
The new Myers Automotive Acute Care of the Elderly (ACE) Unit at the Queensway Carleton Hospital recently celebrated the official opening and is preparing to start taking patients soon. As the Myers Automotive Group donated $1 million towards the ACE unit, a few members from the Myers group and Mews family, including Mr. Hank Mews and son Mr. Robert Mews (Executive VP of The Myers Automotive Group) were on hand at the grand opening ceremony which was timed to a visit from Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne, and Infrastructure Minister and local MPP, Bob Chiarelli.
The Mews family and the Myers Automotive Group have always felt it is important to give back to the Ottawa-area community and are happy to have made this contribution to the Queensway Carleton Hospital, where Mr. Hank Mews has previously sat on the hospital board. We look forward to seeing how this new unit helps the Ottawa-area community members in need of this specialised care.
Below you will find an article written by the Queensway Carleton Hospital on the new Myers Automotive Acute Care of the Elderly (ACE) Unit.

Myers Automotive Group Donates $1,000,000 to the Queensway Carleton Hospital!
The Queensway Carleton Hospital Foundation has announced the donation to the Acute Care of Elderly Unit, which will be named the Myers Automotive Acute Care of the Elderly Unit.
First of its kind in Eastern Ontario, the ACE Unit is expected to open in 2016 and contain 34 beds to better attend the needs of the growing elderly community in the greater Ottawa area. Currently, the population in Ottawa consists of about 14% of residents being over the age of 65. This is expected to increase by 3.5% per year over the next 20 years.
This new expansion in the Ottawa medical industry will give focused care to our senior community members, giving them the service they need for shorter hospital stays and the ability to stay local for more specialized treatments.
