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.

SSRH Ambulatory Care: RN Nancy Grandy and Ward Clerk Courtney Wheeler are proudly showing off their new Accuvein Vein Finder, purchased by the generous attendees of the 2021 Charm Diamonds Women's Giving Circle!

"This device is already making a huge difference in the lives of our patients. Thank you so much for your continued generosity and helping us to improve the care we provide to our patients. You are truly amazing!"

SSRH Women's & Children's Unit:

"The staff and physicians on the Women and Children's Department would like to thank the donors of the Health Services Foundation for the educational material and teaching aids recently purchased for the staff.

Investing in our staff helps us to provide better care at the bedside. Once again we thank you for your unwavering support of our unit and SSRH."

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, over $1,000,000 has been raised in support of the South Shore Bursary Program to support future 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.
