Celebrating John and Joan Pestka

Queensway Carleton Hospital was first built as a result of community leaders coming together to fill a need. It has always been a community based hospital even though it has grown in scope and size serving the greater Eastern Ontario community. There is no better example of grassroots support than that of John and Joan Pestka. John volunteered at the coffee shop in the hospital for number of years and now in their later years have gone one step further donating a legacy gift of 50,000 dollars. We salute John and Joan for their community leadership and commitment to the Queensway Carleton Hospital.
