With incredible appreciation for the care provided to his partner, his staff and his customers, Doug Kego, Owner and President of Rendez-Vous Nissan in Hawkesbury, recently confirmed a gift of $36,000 to the Hawkesbury and District General Hospital (HGH) Foundation.

“My partner, Diane, was diagnosed with colon cancer last year and was able to receive all of her treatments in Hawkesbury. We were so relieved not to have to travel to Ottawa and were both absolutely blown away by the wonderful care she received at HGH,” Kego explained. “I am proud to make this contribution to the HGH Foundation on behalf of Rendez-Vous Nissan and the Kego Family.”

“For us, our staff is like family, and I will do anything I can to ensure they and our customers are able to receive the health care they need at HGH.”

The donation will be attributed directly to the HGH Foundation’s new campaign, ‘There’s No Place Like Home’.

“This is truly a wonderful gift for our hospital,” said Erin Tabakman, Executive Director of the HGH Foundation. “We are so grateful to the Kego Family and Rendez-Vous Nissan for their commitment to supporting the purchase of medical equipment required to bring much-needed services to HGH.”

Rendez-Vous Nissan is also currently offering a free oil change and vehicle inspection to all healthcare workers, to say thank you for their courage and resolve during these difficult times.

The HGH Foundation’s mission is to raise funds in order to improve the care and services offered to the community by the Hawkesbury and District General Hospital.

‘There’s No Place Like Home’ is an initiative to help provide the highest priority medical equipment so that HGH can add and expand programs and services in key areas such as Orthopedics, Ophthalmology, Advanced Mammography, Urology and Endoscopy.
