“Here for Your Health” Annual Campaign Launches!

BATHURST – The Chaleur Regional Hospital Foundation has launched its 2023 “Here for Your Health” Annual Campaign with a $350,000 objective.

“It’s with great enthusiasm that we launch our Foundation’s 24th Annual Campaign. This fundraising effort, focused on recruiting a new specialist and providing patients with faster service, will significantly impact our community,” explained Hollis Chamberlain, Chair of the Annual Campaign Organizing Committee.

This year, the campaign’s financial objective will allow two important pieces of specialized equipment to be purchased, for ambulatory care and the laboratory.

“Such a campaign requires many volunteers working together to achieve this common objective. We are very proud of our team, who have already accepted this challenge, and we want to thank them for their commitment.  The members include Hollis Chamberlain, Campaign Chair, Denis Roy and Danielle Goyette, Corporate and Association Representatives, Alice Hébert, Chair of the Roses Radiothon – Chaleur, Dr. Marc-André Doucet, Chair of the Charity Golf Tournament and Dr. Marilyne Bossé, Chair of the Northern Star – Chaleur,” added Jean-Guy Robichaud, Chair of the Board of Directors.

The Campaign Committee is already very proud to be able to announce their first donor.  Friends of Healthcare, a major, long-term partner of the Foundation, has already announced a $10,000 commitment toward the objective.  Friends of HealthCare is a non-profit organization chaired by René Beaudet that holds bingos year-round in support of the health sector.   Since the start of this partnership, the organization has made over $1 million in commitments to improve health care here in our region. The Foundation is very fortunate to be able to count on their support with several important projects. “Our group is very proud to be able to continue supporting our health professionals here in the region so that people can get the high-quality health care and services they need,” explained Mr. Beaudet, Chair of Friends of Healthcare.

The mission of the Chaleur Regional Hospital Foundation is to work closely with the Chaleur Regional Hospital to identify and meet the dynamic needs of the health care system and promote engagement by our community.
