Sylvia’s Café Unveiled at South Shore Regional Hospital

syl3The cafeteria at South Shore Regional Hospital (Nova Scotia Health Authority) has officially taken on a new name and a new meaning to the community.

On May 4, 2018, the cafeteria was renamed Sylvia’s Café, in memory of Sylvia Mailman; a long-serving employee of the hospital’s Nutrition and Food Services department.

Mailman worked for 43 years as part of the Nutrition and Food Services team. She was on her way home from work when she was killed in a car accident in August 2016.

Michelle Roberts-Chevarie, Manager of Nutrition and Food Services, remembers what Mailman brought to work each day. “She was very friendly and caring to all the customers who came through the South Shore Regional cafeteria. She always aimed to meet their needs as well as brighten their day.”

Funding for the dedication of Sylvia’s Café came through the Health Services Foundation of the South Shore, where donations were made in Mailman’s name. The Health Services Foundation’s Board agreed to add to the donations made and cover the cost of the rebranding project.

“Sylvia was an exceptional person, someone who always had a smile on her face and in her heart,” says Phil Bradfield, Chair of the Health Services Foundation Board. “We were pleased to help Sylvia’s family, friends and co-workers honour her in this special way.”
