planned giving handsWhile it is not a popular topic around the dinner table, leaving final donations to charities in wills is now a common practice and has been some time. The proof? The Health Services Foundation of the South Shore found it as they reflected on giving trends to their organization over the past 25 years.

Arleen 170x170 If you’ve had a test or procedure in any one of the hospitals or health centres operated by Nova Scotia Health Authority, chances are that some of the equipment used in your care was purchased by a healthcare foundation.

In the past five years alone, these 41 hospital foundations, have contributed more than $250-million to support patient care, education and research.

On November 27, provincial health care foundations and the Nova Scotia Health Authority are coming together as a collective to raise awareness about the essential work they do to support and enhance the delivery of health care and to thank the generous volunteers and donors who make that possible.

Now as his 76th birthday approaches, Gordon has given himself a new challenge: raising funds through his walk for the Journey Room at South Shore Regional Hospital.

misThe Health Services Foundation of the South Shore will be purchasing a pair of Minimally Invasive Surgical Suites for South Shore Regional Hospital in Bridgewater.

The Board of the Health Services Foundation learned the Nova Scotia Health Authority gave the project the green light at its meeting on March 22nd. The MIS suites carry an estimated price tag of $1.4-million, the Foundation's largest initiative to date!

A MIS suite is used in a number of laparoscopic procedures, using a thin, long instrument with a lense and camera through tiny incisions in a patient, rather than one large one. This allows for less pain and a quicker recovery for a patient.

The heritage bonspiel has been raising funds for various departments in Fishermen’s Memorial Hospital in Lunenburg since its inception at the turn of the century. Funds raised through this year’s event will go to purchasing new equipment for the hospital’s Physiotherapy Department, including a shockwave therapy machine which will allow Lunenburg County residents the opportunity to receive this treatment within their local public healthcare.

It was two years ago in January RCMP Constable Dave Wynn was fatally shot while responding to a call in St. Albert, Alberta. Hearts simultaneously broke along the South Shore as Wynn had worked in Bridgewater as a paramedic for years.

As Wynn’s wife, Shelly, tried to decide where the funds raised during this year’s Memorial Classic should go, thinking of the passing of one of Dave’s close friends made her choice obvious.

Radiothon 2017 Online Auction Home Page

The Health Services Foundation of the South Shore is constantly looking for ways to grow and improve how you give to its annual Radiothon fundraiser. This year the Foundation is going high-tech with its popular Radiothon auction, taking it to the world wide web for Radiothon 2017!

“We are very excited this year about moving the auction to an online platform,” says Phil Bradfield, Chair of the Health Services Foundation’s Board. “Bidders will be able to see in real time how the auction is progressing and instantaneously respond on items they are interested in purchasing. This is a huge leap forward for us.”

Having the auction online will also allow excited bidders to place bids early. Instead of being a one day only event, Radiothon 2017’s auction will launch February 1st and run until 5pm on February 14th.
