The Myers Automotive Acute Care of the Elderly (ACE) Unit Opens at Queensway Carleton Hospital
The new Myers Automotive Acute Care of the Elderly (ACE) Unit at the Queensway Carleton Hospital recently celebrated the official opening and is preparing to start taking patients soon. As the Myers Automotive Group donated $1 million towards the ACE unit, a few members from the Myers group and Mews family, including Mr. Hank Mews and son Mr. Robert Mews (Executive VP of The Myers Automotive Group) were on hand at the grand opening ceremony which was timed to a visit from Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne, and Infrastructure Minister and local MPP, Bob Chiarelli.
The Mews family and the Myers Automotive Group have always felt it is important to give back to the Ottawa-area community and are happy to have made this contribution to the Queensway Carleton Hospital, where Mr. Hank Mews has previously sat on the hospital board. We look forward to seeing how this new unit helps the Ottawa-area community members in need of this specialised care.
Below you will find an article written by the Queensway Carleton Hospital on the new Myers Automotive Acute Care of the Elderly (ACE) Unit.

J.D. Power Initial Quality Study
J.D. Power recently put out its Initial Quality study showing the top recognized brands in the automotive industry this year. The survey that was conducted asked 84,000 people any problems they may have encountered during the first 90 days of owning or leasing their new vehicle. As one of the highest rated vehicles compared to industry standard, Hyundai ranked as 4th overall, behind only Porshe, Jaguar and Kia.
"This is a clear shift in the quality landscape," said Renee Stephens, vice president of U.S. automotive quality at J.D. Power. "For so long, Japanese brands have been viewed by many as the gold standard in vehicle quality. While the Japanese automakers continue to make improvements, we're seeing other brands -- most notably Korean makes -- accelerating the rate of improvement."
As far as individual models go, General Motors Chevrolet vehicles tie with three other manufacturers, Hyundai, Volkswagen and Nissan as high ranked in overall satisfaction according to the survey results. Top placing models rankings include:
- hevrolet Spark - Best City Car
- hevrolet Malibu - Best Midsize Car
- Hyundai Accent - Best Small Car
- hevrolet Sonic - Top Three Small Car
- hevrolet Camaro - Top Midsize Sporty Car
- Infiniti Q70 - Top Three Midsize Premium Car
- Nissan Sentra - Best Compact Car
- Hyundai Elantra - Top Three Compact Car
- Volkswagen Eos - Top Compact Sporty Car

We are proud to announce that the Myers Automotive Group has donated $1,000,000 to the Queensway Carleton Hospital!
The Queensway Carleton Hospital Foundation has announced the donation to the Acute Care of Elderly Unit, which will be named the Myers Automotive Acute Care of the Elderly Unit.
First of its kind in Eastern Ontario, the ACE Unit is expected to open in 2016 and contain 34 beds to better attend the needs of the growing elderly community in the greater Ottawa area. Currently, the population in Ottawa consists of about 14% of residents being over the age of 65. This is expected to increase by 3.5% per year over the next 20 years.
This new expansion in the Ottawa medical industry will give focused care to our senior community members, giving them the service they need for shorter hospital stays and the ability to stay local for more specialized treatments.
