Michelin Bridgewater’s gift to the Health Services Foundation’s Brighter Days capital campaign is keeping the initiative rolling forward.

One of the South Shore’s largest employers has donated $100,000 in support of the South Shore Regional Hospital redevelopment project.

Facility Personnel Manager Kirby Nickerson says it’s a great opportunity for Michelin to give back to the community. “The range of services provided by South Shore Regional Hospital has the potential to directly impact each of our employees and their families. Having the opportunity to play a role in enhancing the availability of these services is important not only to us, but to our families and neighbors as well.”

The South Shore Regional Hospital Redevelopment Project will also see the 34-year-old facility’s Day Surgery and Endoscopy Departments expand to have more capacity, while bringing a SPECT-CT scanner, twelve-bed Dialysis Unit and a long-awaited MRI scanner to the region.

“It is extremely important to have access to a variety of health care services at South Shore Regional,” adds Kirby. “With the upgrades thanks to the Brighter Days Campaign, it will be a great way to attract more people to the local area, including doctors and other health care professionals”.

Supporting the Brighter Days Campaign provides an opportunity to feel good about investing in a vital community resource, which will have a positive impact on our employees, their families, and our community. Please support this campaign in any way possible.”

The Health Services Foundation of the South Shore is very excited and committed to raising $6.6-million in support of the South Shore Regional Hospital Redevelopment Project through our Brighter Days Capital Campaign. As our community campaign launches, there will be more frequent news to share on its volunteer-led fundraising effort in the coming months.
