“Navigating COVID-19 for over a year now, doctors, nurses and support staff at Guelph General Hospital are facing even greater challenges with third-wave cases,” Wellington Brewery said in a news release.

“Local emergency departments have also seen an increase in community members needing mental health support and they need more space for this important work.”

The funds raised are supporting the hospital foundation’s Together We Care campaign to help build an expanded emergency department and special care nursery, and purchase new equipment.

As part of the fundraiser, Wellington Brewery are featuring health-care workers on their social media channels, beginning with emergency department physician, Dr. Ed Chung

“It has been a stressful time for health care providers and people coming to the ER. People have been scared and lonely,” Chung said in a statement.

“We are hopefully getting closer to the ‘finish line’ but until we get there our hospitals will be overloaded and need all the support we can provide.”
