The Health Services Foundation is your pathway to give directly to health care equipment and service needs in our Lunenburg County hospitals and communities.
The impact of your donations is felt each and every day at South Shore Regional and Fishermen’s Memorial hospitals.
Omnicell CSM: Thanks to the generous donations from our communities, the Health Services Foundation was able to purchase anOmnicell CSM (Controlled Substance Manager); keeping highly-secured tabs on all controlled substances at hospitals on the South Shore.
COVID-19 Response: Our communities rallied to support our front line teams, raising over $139,000 to quickly purchase additional COVID-19 response equipment and PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) for staff at South Shore Regional and Fishermen’s Memorial Hospitals.
You’re in your final year of high school and you’re trying to decide what to do with your life.
You’ve hit a wall in your 9-5 and want to make a career out of giving back to those in your community.
Making the decision to pursue a career in health care is a bold and selfless move. A move that the South Shore Bursary Program is here to support.
In the bursary’s 15 years it has helped 116 South Shore residents finance their education in a health-related field. Of the 116 bursary recipients, 85 trained to become Registered Nurses (RNs), 26 became certified Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs), and one trained to be a doctor and is currently practicing in Lunenburg.
On top of investing in the futures of those in our community, the bursary has a return-for-service agreement ensuring all recipients come back and return a year of service at a South Shore hospital for each year they received financial support.
Since 2006, the South Shore Health Bursary has invested nearly $550,000 into the future of health care professionals in both Lunenburg & Queens Counties. The bursary is a proud partnership of the Health Services Foundation of the South Shore, the South Shore Regional Hospital Auxiliary, the Fishermen’s Memorial Hospital Auxiliary, the Queens General Hospital Foundation and a committed supporter in the community.
