KiSS Minutes Matter ~ in support of our local Emergency Department



Feb 23


Timmins and District Hospital, Timmins


On Thursday, February 23rd, KiSS 99.3 is broadcasting LIVE from 6am to 6pm from the Timmins and District Hospital to raise funds for one of the largest infrastructure projects to date … renovating the Emergency Room!


Become an E.R. Angel!  Make a donation of $100 or more and we’ll read your message (or donation challenge) LIVE on-air.  A special thank you will also be included on-line and on our KiSS Timmins Facebook Fan Page.


KiSS Mornings with Mark will be LIVE all day … morning, noon, and evening with special guests from the Timmins Fire Department, OPP, Timmins Police, ER physicians, nurses and more!


The Need:

– 40,000 ER visits per year
– 30% increase in number of stretchers since 1993 with no increase in space
– 3,000 to 4,000 patients admitted through ER per year
– Up to 80 % of ER stretchers have been filled by patients waiting to be admitted
– Patient safety (restricted visualization) and privacy concerns due to poor layout


The Plan:
Emergency Room Retrofit – $1.5 Million
Emergency Room Equipment – $235,000


Your gift to KiSS Minutes Matter will help by funding the purchase of much-needed medical equipment and renovate our ER department to accommodate new techniques and recruit new physicians in order to provide the best healthcare services for our community and surrounding District!
