Hidden Treasures 2019

The Hidden Treasures gently used, quality, clothing sale has come to a close for 2019. Women from all over Rothesay, and surrounding areas, came out in droves to experience the thrill of searching for hidden treasures. This event captured the interest of kindred spirits who delight in supporting their community, and the discovery of a good deal. This initiative truly was a testament to the power of the people. When those who have a common cause come together, our community supports them.

Contributors helped to make this fundraiser a massive success, raising over $80,000 in funds. These proceeds will help support women's health and the Breast Health Centre here at St. Joseph's Hospital. Specifically, these funds will go toward the future purchase of a 3-D mammography machine that aids in the early detection of abnormalities, which could ultimately save lives. participation in Hidden Treasures has helped us get one step closer to bringing this lifesaving piece of equipment into our community.

Thank you to all clothing donors, volunteers, sponsors, and attendees for the kindest of contributions and support of this fundraiser.

 2016 "Campaign for Comfort" Completed

When you think of new equipment that hospitals need you naturally think of high tech equipment with advanced technology, yet many pieces of equipment are more basic than that. Consider patient treatment chairs. While not necessarily high-tech they can make an enormous impact for patients who rely on the IV Day Hospital for their care.  

The IV Day Hospital provides care to over 13,000 patients annually, including oncology patients, patients requiring blood transfusions, re-hydration, wound care and intravenous antibiotics.   Treatment chairs must provide optimal comfort as patients can spend up to eight hours with us. The clinic currently uses older style recliners that need to be replaced. For some patients these chairs offer little comfort. New specialized chairs will make the world of a difference for our patients in reducing pain, preventing infection and providing the care and comfort they deserve.  

Together we can enhance the comfort of the patients who rely on the IV day hospital for their care. I thank you in advance for your generous support of St. Joseph's Hospital Foundation and the patients we serve. Your gift today will bring comfort to patients when they need it the most.


In Gratitude,

Michael Gills

Chairman, St. Joseph’s Hospital Foundation
