Thank you for making The GIVE 2016 Pediatric Campaign an incredible success!
Thanks to the generous support of our wonderful family of donors, supporters, partners and volunteers, The GIVE 2016 Pediatrics Campaign – our largest to date – raised a phenomenal $1,885,850 to improve the wellbeing of children and families throughout the community and the entire region. Here’s what your support achieved:
The Saint John Regional Hospital Foundation raises funds to support leading-edge technology and research at the Saint John Regional Hospital, the largest healthcare centre in the province - providing world-class care for all New Brunswickers. Since 1980, the Foundation has raised more than $85 million, thanks to the generosity of more than 50,000 donors.
High Tech Equipment a Key Pillar of Care at the Saint John Regional Hospital
The Foundation’s campaign for The Give 2015 – “Always On, Always Awake, Here for You” – offered our community the opportunity to support priority needs in any of the Foundation’s five Pillars of Care: high-tech equipment, mental wellbeing (MindCare), clinical education, research, and patient comfort.
“O”- Arm: The purchase of an O-Arm will make Saint John Regional one of only a few hospitals in the country to offer spinal surgeons and neurosurgeons the capability to see three-dimensional images of the spine while performing surgery. This will enable surgeons to ensure that delicate surgery is performed with absolute accuracy, making the surgery faster and increasing safety and the speed of recovery for the patient, with fewer complications. It will also reduce the amount of exposure to radiation for OR staff, extending the careers of surgeons and orthopaedic nurses significantly. Learn more - view a video explaining how the O-Arm works
With your help, we reached $900,000 goal for laboratory equipment!
Thanks to overwhelming support from our community, on February 12, 2015, we reached our fundraising goal and officially closed The GIVE campaign for Personalized Medicine. Funds raised will be used to purchase 13 pieces of state-of-the-art equipment for our hospital's laboratory. This equipment will give our laboratory team the tools they need to analyze the entire human genome - to look at our DNA and to provide our medical team with the information they need to personalize cancer care for our patients.
