QCH and Foundation is mourning the loss of an incredible community builder and philanthropist, Hank Mews. Through his generosity and dedication to our hospital, Hank improved the lives of countless patients and helped shape the QCH we know today.
For over 30 years, Hank volunteered to help improve our hospital. From his volunteer role in the Foundation’s Hand in Hand campaign, helping secure significant support during that phase of QCH’s expansion, to serving on the QCH and QCH Foundation boards, Hank demonstrated his steadfast commitment to advancing healthcare for our community.
In addition to his leadership, Hank and his business, Myers Automotive Group, were among QCH’s most generous supporters.
In 2015, the Mews family’s Myers Automotive Group made a transformational $1 million donation to help build our hospital’s Myers Automotive Acute Care of the Elderly (ACE) Unit. The ACE Unit serves as a specialized geriatric care unit and was the first of its kind in Eastern Ontario. Throughout the pandemic, thanks to its unique design, this state-of-the-art unit served as QCH’s COVID-19 Unit, helping care for patients during a critical time – serving far beyond its primary purpose.
We send our heartfelt condolences to Hank’s family and friends during this time.
