Dear Friend of the Foundation,
Since 1987, La Fondation de l’Hôpital de Lamèque Inc. has donated over one million five hundred thousand dollars to the Lamèque Hospital and Community Health Centre. Every year, funds are invested in the hospital to meet the needs of the various sectors and services.
We have always worked in partnership with the Lamèque Hospital and Community Health Centre to identify their needs and to ensure that people have access to care and services close to home. This year we are proud to partner with the Vitalité Health Network in the investment of $1 million for the expansion of the Family Medicine Unit (FMU).
Access to quality care at home is an important cause for the Foundation.
Join us in the wave of wellness!
I invite you, once again this year, to be generous and contribute to our 2021 Annual Campaign with a goal of $50,000. This is part of the $300,000 commitment of La Fondation de l’Hôpital de Lamèque Inc. to the expansion of the UMF.
