Health Services Foundation of the South Shore

About

The Health Services Foundation of the South Shore formed in 1993 from a merger of the South Shore Regional Hospital Foundation and the Fishermen’s Memorial Hospital Society, with a mandate to raise money in an orderly, continuing, and coordinated way for both hospitals.  Between the two sites they serve approximately 60,000 people.

While the Health Services Foundation responds to the needs of the hospitals it is accountable to the donors and the community, whose gifts make its work possible.Many gifts are designated to a specific program or service. Assuring that the wishes of the donor are carried out is a responsibility the Foundation takes very seriously.

The affairs of the Foundation are guided by a Board of Directors, composed of volunteers with diverse interests and expertise, from various county communities.

Foundations are an important part of Nova Scotia’s health system, not only for their financial support, but also for the link they provide between hospitals and the community. The relationship is based on trust, good will, and a mutual desire to help.
