CARAQUET – This morning an amount of $90,000 was given to Vitalité Health Network as part of the 2016 Annual Campaign of the Fondation Hôpital de l’Enfant Jésus. The ceremony was held in the cafeteria of the Enfant Jésus RHSJ† Hospital.
This year three areas of the hospital will benefit from the annual campaign (Laboratory, Medical, and Electrodiagnostics). An amount of $10,000 will also go toward various regional projects.
“As you can see, the money that you give generously is used to purchase equipment that will allow us to treat thousands of patients at the hospital every year,” explained Judy Butler, Primary Health Care Manager.
A total amount of $116, 145 was proudly announced by Thérèse Haché, 2016 Annual Campaign Chair. “This generosity reflects the importance of the hospital for our community,” said Ms. Haché.
For her part, Foundation Board of Directors Vice-Chairperson Mélanie Chiasson took the opportunity to express thanks. “Thank you to all those who contribute, either directly or indirectly, to the success of the Foundation and its annual campaign, as today the hospital will be able to benefit from various new patient care equipment.”
The mission of the Fondation Hôpital de l’Enfant-Jésus is to raise funds to improve the health care services provided at the Enfant-Jésus RHSJ† Hospital and to help the facility build a greater sense of belonging within its community.
