TRACADIE-SHEILA – The 16th Annual Campaign organized by the Fondation Les Amis de l’Hôpital de Tracadie officially launched this morning in the cafeteria of the Tracadie-Sheila Hospital. This campaign will come to a close in April 2018 with the holding of the Roses Radiothon.

This year, the financial objective for the campaign has been set at $90,000. The funds collected will be used to strengthen the care and services provided by the Medical, 2nd North, Dialysis, Ambulatory Care and Laboratory sectors. The Foundation will also support the regional hospital’s major fundraising campaign so it can strengthen our specialized care.

“We are pleased that the projects supported by this year’s annual campaign will increase the comfort of our hospital’s patients and visitors and support our health professionals by providing them with quality work tools!” explained Vivianne Thomas, representative of the Tracadie-Sheila Hospital.

“The volunteers of the Fondation Les Amis de l’Hôpital de Tracadie Inc. strive daily to provide all our communities with the best possible services. Their hard work bears fruit every year by improving people’s quality of life. On my own behalf and that of the Board of Directors and employees of Vitalité Health Network, many thanks to all volunteers.” Said Gilles Lanteigne, President and CEO of Vitalité Health Network
