DYK: all surgical instruments, medical utensils, anesthesia and respirator equipment used at South Shore Regional, Fishermen's Memorial and Queens General Hospitals are all cleaned at SSRH? By just one machine?!

Together, we can change this!

Join us as the Gift From The Heart Radiothon returns February 14th, 2022. Make an individual donation or host a fundraiser with your friends, a community group, or even at your workplace!

Each February, the South Shore pulls together for the Health Services Foundation’s annual Gift From the Heart Radiothon, on 98.1 CKBW & Country 100.7, to fund and enhance necessary equipment for South Shore Regional Hospital.

Give today don't forget to buy your Radiothon 50/50 tickets! Take part in the online auction! We just ask that you do so following COVID-19 public health protocols set out by the province of Nova Scotia.

The people of Lunenburg County have a great track record of supporting Fishermen’s Memorial Hospital, which is a vibrant part of our community. Volunteers and the Health Services Foundation of the South Shore, along with title sponsors including West Nova Fuels, have bought over $750,000 worth of critical pieces of equipment for Fishermen’s Memorial Hospital, raised from generous individuals and corporate groups.

Given the uncertainly COVID-19 and the rules and regulations surrounding in-person events, the Health Services Foundation of the South Shore will not be hosting its annual West Nova Fuels Curl for a Cause bonspiel. While we can’t celebrate and fundraise for our hospital in person, we hope you will join us for a very exciting project!

In 2022, we are hoping to fund an Omnicell Dispensing Cabinet.

An Omnicell improves the management and delivery of controlled substances in hospital units. It supports nurses by telling them what drug needs to be administered to which patient and at what time; requiring an ‘electronic signature’ at each step of the distribution process. This is infinitely safer than the old days, which saw vials of medications stacked in a medical cart, moving throughout the hospital floors.

Please join us in supporting the Veterans’ Unit & new Palliative Care Unit at Fishermen’s Memorial Hospital by helping fundraise towards this $117,000 Omnicell.

This fundraising appeal is meant to light up Fishermen’s Memorial Hospital, which is exactly what your donation will do!

For every gift made towards the West Nova Fuels Curl for a Cause appeal by March 31st, 2022, a LED candle will be “lit” in its honour. Together we will Light Up Fishermen’s!

Donate today by calling the Health Services Foundation at 902-543-8065 or donate online!

Picture it: Dragon’s Den, but instead of dragons there are hospital equipment and diamonds!

In one evening, four health care projects are pitched to our donors – one is selected to be completely funded with the $10,000 raised that night. Projects can be submitted by medical professionals at South Shore Regional or Fishermen’s Memorial Hospitals.

It’s a night out that makes a true impact on your community!

The 8th Charm Diamond Centre's Women’s Giving Circle was a great success, with attendees voting to fund a Vein Visualizer for the Ambulatory Care Department at South Shore Regional Hospital. Thank you to all who made the event possible!


You have the power to make our local hospitals stronger!

It can be as simple as asking for a donation in place of a birthday present, or as extravagant as a concert or a dance. Every bit helps as we strive to bring the best health care services to Lunenburg County.
