"Ozzy" was purchased with funds from Hit It For Health 2016.

The Respritory Team is very excited to have this new piece of equipment and is grateful to everyone helped raise funds for it!

AnneIt’s hard to stop Anne Cosgrove in her tracks. The proud Lunenburg County resident is involved in a number of different community service groups and committees, keeping her with a full day-planner. But a phone call in August made life come to a grinding halt; she had cancer.

A radiologist at South Shore Regional Hospital had found abnormalities in her annual mammogram. After nearly 20 years of volunteering, fundraising and being both a committee member and board member of the Health Services Foundation of the South Shore, Anne’s life was about to be put in the hands of the services and equipment she helped fund.

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.”

Fashion committee After nine years, Fashion for Our Future has had its final curtain call at Bridgewater Junior Senior High School.

The 2017 show, featuring soon-to-be graduates modeling stylish wears from Bridgewater businesses, raised $2,340 in support of the Operating Rooms at South Shore Regional Hospital. In total, over nine years, community-dedicated students have raised over $10,000 in support of local health care!

Congraulations Fashion for Our Future committee - great job!

As residents of Lunenburg County know; we stick together and get things done!

A prime example of this took place during Radiothon. Both Michelin North America and Dexter Construction stepped up to the plate and made a difference.

Michelin North America sponsored our first ever Radiothon power hour, matching monthly donations up to $5,000, resulting in the purchase of all the anesthesia carts for the O.R. at South Shore Regional Hospital. Dexter Construction matched $100 donations throughout Radiothon day, donating $7,500. Cheers to you and all the local businesses who helped the Health Services Foundation purchase new operating room equipment!

IMG 2387The 17th annual Curl for a Cause met its goal and will be buying all the new physiotherapy equipment it had hoped to purchase for Fishermen’s Memorial Hospital.

The $40,800 raised from the weekend bonspiel at the Lunenburg Curling Club will buy seven pieces of equipment, including a customizable wheelchair, an electronic stair climbing treadmill and a shockwave therapy machine.

The heritage bonspiel has been raising funds for various departments in Fishermen’s Memorial Hospital since 2001. Over the past 16 years, Curl for a Cause has raised over $418,000 for necessary equipment that saves lives, provides advanced diagnosis and treatment, and elevates the quality of life for residents in Lunenburg County.

Over the past 10 years, the Health Services Foundation of the South Shore, Queens General Hospital Foundation and Fishermen’s Memorial Hospital Auxiliary have invested over $550,000 in the South Shore Bursary program - helping 67 students entering the healthcare field to achieve their goals.
