Northern Star

The Northern Star is an activity organized in collaboration with 8 Vitalité Health Network Foundations to raise funds for their respective institutions. Since 2006, this activity has raised a net amount of more than $1 million for the acquisition of important tools for health professionals in our hospitals.

The money received will enable the Fondation Les Amis de l’Hôpital de Tracadie to acquire a microscope to improve the ambulatory care sector. Since the arrival of the rheumatology clinic last March, 339 patients have already benefited from this specialized clinic. The microscope will therefore become an important tool for the clinic’s specialists.

How to participate?

1) In the Tracadie region, you can get your tree at the UNI point of service in our region and at the Jean Coutu pharmacy: people can get their tree for a donation between $2 and $20 and put their name on it. These trees will then be posted in the places where you made your donation.

2) Christmas tree dedication: People are invited to make a dedication to honour or pay tribute to a loved one. In exchange for a donation of $200, the name will be displayed on a Christmas ball that will then be placed on a tree outside the Hospital.

3) Illumination: Illumination takes place at the Hospital in December each year throughout the territory of the participating foundations. During this evening, people who have made a dedication will have the opportunity to place these dedications on the trees and then we will proceed with the illumination of these trees.
