General Annual Meeting

TRACADIE –In recent years, the Fondation Les Amis de l’Hôpital de Tracadie has undergone a major shift to become a change agent having a real influence in our community and supporting important projects that enhance practices, to the great benefit of our patients and their families.

Our major campaign, conducted under the theme “Improving health care services in our region,” came to a close last fall, with donors, Tracadie Hospital employees and physicians, and volunteers in attendance, all of whom contributed to the campaign’s success. It was at this event that we announced the result of the community-building projects we had conducted for this campaign. Our objective had been to raise $950,000 but a final total of $1,074,355 was achieved. The campaign’s success resulted from having a dynamic team of volunteers and a generous community. We are blessed to have been able to count on the commitment of amazing volunteers. Two local businessmen agreed to get behind this endeavor, namely the Campaign Co-Chairs, the late Richard Losier who was an important ambassador for our region, from St-Isidore Asphalte, and Léopold Thériault, from MQM Quality Manufacturing. They were supported in their efforts by leaders who are very active in our community and the community has been incredibly generous. We can state without hesitation that the campaign was a success in all respects. The funds raised will support two projects: the modernization of the Dialysis Unit and the creation of a chronic disease management clinic.

We are proud of this success and we pledge to continue making every effort to meet our hospital’s pressing needs. Over the past year, we also allocated the following amounts to the sectors below to strengthen the care and services we provide the public:

  • $55,529 – Patient care and diagnostic, treatment and follow-up services (56%);
  • $35,981 – Specialized regional services and services in the fight against cancer (37%);
  • $ 7,043 – Training and continuing education (7%).


“The accessibility of quality health care services must remain a priority, now more than ever. Thank you for your confidence and support.” says Mr. Philippe Ferguson, chairperson of the Board of Directors of the Fondation Les Amis de l’Hôpital de Tracadie.

The elected members of the Board of Directors of the Foundation for the coming year are: Philippe Ferguson, Chairperson, Monique Savoie, Vice-Chairperson, Isabelle Paulin, Secretary, Jacques Robichaud, Treasurer, Vivianne Thomas, Norbert Rousselle, Jacinthe Leclerc, Marjolaine Benoît and Audrey MurphyThibodeau.
