Gift from the Heart Radiothon 2020: The Hospital Lift

No one wants to feel stuck or confined to a space when your body wants its freedom to move.

But if you or a loved one should find yourself like this at South Shore Regional Hospital, you will have peace in knowing the ceiling lifts you supported purchasing through the 10th annual Gift From The Heart Radiothon will be there to help support you and your nursing staff.

To provide the best patient care, healthcare professionals need the right tools. Ceiling lifts are needed on the Medical & Medical-Surgical Units at South Shore Regional to create a safer environment for staff to handle patient mobility.   

In addition to helping nurses assist their patients in a safer manner, the patient lift will dramatically decrease the chances of patient falls and bedsores. The lifts will allow patients to be more mobile and not confined to a bed during their stay, improving their overall mental well-being.

I’m asking you to please support the Health Services Foundation’s Hospital Lift 2020, through the Gift From The Heart Radiothon, February 14th, 2020, on CKBW and Country 100.7. Our goal is to purchase 25 lifts in one day! All we need is your support.

The Gift From The Heart Radiothon will return February 14th, 2020. Make an individual donation or host a fundraiser with your friends, a community group, or even at your workplace! Or become a sponsor! Take part in the auction! To find out more about how you can help with Radiothon or any of our other events, please call 902-543-4604 ext. 2543 or email Development Officer Alison Clements This email address is being protected from spambots.

Our 9th annual Radiothon was A success!

Mission: Accomplished! Donations of all sizes from donors of all ages have made the purchase of six essential pieces of equipment for the Maternal/Child Unit at South Shore Regional Hospital possible. The Health Services Foundation’s 9th annual Gift From the Heart Radiothon aired on CKBW & Country 100.7 for twelve hours February 14th, sharing stories of the importance of keeping the equipment in the unit, which welcomes nearly 400 babies a year on the South Shore, up to date. The day was full of amazing donations, from children offering their piggybank savings to an amazing $36,212 donation from the South Shore Regional Hospital Auxiliary to completely purchase a new infant radiant warmer for the department. At 6pm it was revealed the community’s efforts raised $147,884, $2,000 over the fundraiser’s goal.
