Love was certainly in the air for the South Shore’s only Intensive Care Unit this Valentine’s Day.

Hundreds of residents, businesses and organizations along the South Shore helped raise over $150,000  during the Gift From The Heart Radiothon.

Funds raised through this year’s event will purchase a number of essential items for the ICU at South Shore Regional Hospital, including an ultrasound, a new bed and mattress, special broda chairs and wall and door kits.

Health Services Foundation Executive Director Arleen Stevens says the awe of Radiothon Day never goes away. “We are so thankful and grateful for how our South Shore communities rally around our local hospitals. We are still in awe of what our donors make possible each and every year through the Gift From The Heart Radiothon. We are excited to have the ICU at our regional hospital now be able to move forward with projects that will enhance the ICU experience for both patients and staff.”

With this total in the books, the annual fundraiser, heard on CKBW and Country 100.7, has raised over $1.8-million to enhance healthcare at the regional hospital.
