Heidi Jirotka 001Some say no matter where you roam, Nova Scotia will always be home. That could not be truer for Dr. Hughie Fraser. From Cape Breton to Shelburne to Calgary and places in between, he has connections to work anywhere. But as he began his career as a doctor, a physician recruitment fund proposal drew Dr. Fraser and his wife home to Bridgewater.

VeinotsThe Veinots family roots run deep, spanning the entire South Shore. Gladys started a family on the outskirts of Bridgewater with her husband and son Malcolm, who served as a long-time employee of the Municipality of the District of Lunenburg. The family has had many dealings with local healthcare over the years, from childhood illnesses to losing the man they called father and husband.

Joudrey Family 007
Avan and Lisa Joudrey, as well as their children Emma and Alex, are known for being everywhere; for being cheerleaders in their community. Whether through work, school, or volunteering, the Health Services Foundation holds a special place inside the hearts of the New Germany family.


IreneNeedless to say in Irene Hirtle’s 38 years of nursing, she has seen a lot. Since becoming part of the Palliative Care team at South Shore Regional Hospital in 2003, the now-retired nurse has seen many of her patients in the final days of their lives.

chesterJohn & Dolce Tatlow know what they want from life. They knew they loved each other. They knew marriage was in their cards. They knew the moment they saw their dream retirement home in the Chester area they wanted to make the South Shore home. But when it came time to face the task of creating their wills, it was hard to know how to start the conversation.

Jim and CarolynAs we grow up we daydream of where life and our future career will take us. For Jim Fox, his military career took him from Bedford, Nova Scotia, across Canada, with his Carolyn, from LaHave. But there was never a doubt these two Bluenosers would return to the East Coast one day and plant their roots on the South Shore.

Jim says once you’re on the South Shore you are part of the community. “As a member of the community you put your shoulder into making your community better. By definition, our hospitals are the community. What goes on inside the hospital involves the whole community in one way or another so if you want to actually contribute and promote where you live, then the hospital is a logical place to support.”
