Generous Donors Help Purchase New Maternal/Child Equipment

52094013 10156277675106242 4192017582749908992 oDonations of all sizes from donors of all ages have made the purchase of six essential pieces of equipment for the Maternal/Child Unit at South Shore Regional Hospital possible.

The Health Services Foundation’s 9th annual Gift From the Heart Radiothon aired on CKBW & Country 100.7 for twelve hours February 14th, sharing stories of the importance of keeping the equipment in the unit, which welcomes nearly 400 babies a year on the South Shore, up to date.

The day was full of amazing donations, from children offering their piggybank savings to an amazing $36,212 donation from the South Shore Regional Hospital Auxiliary to completely purchase a new infant radiant warmer for the department.

At 6pm it was revealed the community’s efforts raised $147,884, $2,000 over the fundraiser’s goal, leaving the Foundation’s Development Officer Alison Clements beaming.

“It is truly amazing what our community is capable of,” says Clements. “When this new equipment is in place on the Maternal/Child Unit, it will help babies born on the South Shore over the next 20 years. The equipment was needed and the community really embraced this project. I couldn’t be prouder of the work and generosity that made this equipment possible.”

Along with the infant radiant warmer, the funds raised will purchase two labour and delivery beds, an OR caseroom light, a phototherapy light & stand and an incubator.
