The Foundation's 14th annual Gift From The Heart Radiothon is returning to CKBW and Country 100.7 this coming Valentine's Day (February 14th) in support of the Intensive Care Unit at South Shore Regional Hospital.

The ICU is a place no one wants to find themselves or their loved ones, but it is a pivotal space for care in the regional hospital. While COVID put a spotlight on the need for top-notch ICU services in our community, it also showed local healthcare leaders the need to advance and enhance the unit at South Shore Regional Hospital.

The Health Services Foundation is hoping our communities can come together to raise $150,000 in support of the South Shore’s only ICU, to purchase:

  • Wall & sliding doors kits for patient rooms.
  • A new ICU bed and mattress.
  • 4 broada glider chairs.
  • 3 adjustable tilt broada chairs with tray tables.
  • 1 ultrasound machine.

The Heart Services Foundation is so grateful for the consistent support you have shown to South Shore healthcare. I’m hopeful you will consider once again supporting the Gift From The Heart Radiothon in 2024 for our Intensive Care Unit.

The Health Services Foundation is going BIG for the next two West Nova Fuels Curl for a Cause bonspiels, we the South Shore attempts to Lift Fishermen's!

The Lift Fishermen’s campaign will see 23 ceiling lifts be installed throughout our hospital. These lifts promote mobility and dignity for patients who can no longer mobilize safety without this assistive device. They also reduce the risk of injury amongst the healthcare team. While there are portable lifts at Fishermen’s Memorial Hospital, these often do not work smoothly in the confines of some patient care areas.

Over goal over the next two Curl for a Cause bonspiels is to raise as much as possible towards this $265,225 goal. We need your help to make this possible - please join us and give to Lift Fishermen’s! Give here!
