NEWboardmembersWith large projects on the horizon, the board of the Health Services Foundation of the South Shore has added three new members to its ranks, all with business backgrounds.

gordon bristolFor the past 15 years Gordon Bristol has put himself to the test for his birthday, walking from Bridgewater to Mahone Bay and back. 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.

ShellyWynnThe Journey Room at South Shore Regional Hospital has been chosen as the benefactor of the 2nd annual Dave Wynn Memorial Classic.

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.

We are officially one month away from Radiothon 2017! This year’s mission is to raise $175,000 to replace essential pieces of surgical equipment in the Operating Room in South Shore Regional Hospital.

It’s going to take donations of all sizes to achieve $175,000, which is why the Health Services Foundation of the South Shore is introducing a new way to give: the Radiothon Bucket Brigade! On February 3rd, fantastic volunteers will be hitting local hot spots, throughout Lunenburg County, seeking change with our buckets. Watch on social media and the Health Services Foundation’s website to find out where you can donate; your change will help us make a BIG change.

"We are thrilled to offer the community a new way to give with our first Radiothon Bucket Brigade," says Arleen Stevens, Managing Director of the Health Services Foundation of the South Shore. "Our goal is high this year so the Foundation is asking for even more community support. We are inviting people to come out, have fun, and make a difference in our biggest Radiothon yet."
