TRACADIE-SHEILA – The 2017 Annual Campaign organized by the Fondation Les Amis de l’Hôpital de Tracadie was officially launched this morning in the cafeteria of the Tracadie-Sheila Hospital. This campaign will end in April 2017 with the holding of the Roses Radiothon.

The financial objective for this year’s campaign has been set at $90,000, with the funds raised earmarked to improve the Medical and 2nd North units. The purchase of equipment for these units will enhance patient safety and comfort and staff safety. Furthermore, the Foundation will help support the regional hospital’s major fundraising campaign. “We are fortunate to be able to count on the Fondation Les Amis de l’Hôpital de Tracadie. The Foundation’s work makes it possible for us to purchase equipment for our health professionals,” explained Éric Haché, Regional Manager of Volunteer Services for the Tracadie Sheila Hospital.
