Health Services Foundation’s Open Hospital Day Dubbed a Success

20180930 132305Eager residents of the South Shore received a tour of four departments inside South Shore Regional Hospital Sunday afternoon, during Open Hospital Day.

The event kicked off the Health Services Foundation of the South Shore’s 25th anniversary, as well as celebrated the 30th anniversary of South Shore Regional, which opened its doors in September 1988.

The tour took people through the Maternal/Child, Operating, Diagnostic Imagining and Medical Device Reprocessing departments, where attendees saw over 25 pieces of equipment, purchased by generous donors over the past quarter century.

Arleen Stevens, Executive Director of the Health Services Foundation, dubbed the day a success, noting every person involved with Open Hospital Day took something away with them.

“Those on the tour were amazed at the amount of equipment purchased of the years by donors, as well as the associated price tags. There was a sense of pride in the air after learning of all the equipment and the medical professionals we have working behind the scenes at South Shore Regional. Even staff and board members took away new information. It truly takes all of us (donors, medical staff, residents of the South Shore, and the Foundation) to enhance our regional hospital site.”

25th anniversary celebrations for the Health Services Foundation continue from here, including the official launch of Project 25 in 25, which aims to purchase 25 new pieces of hospital equipment in a year. The Foundation hopes to spread these pieces of equipment around South Shore Regional and Fishermen’s Memorial Hospitals, as well as to associate sites in Lunenburg County.
