The Chaleur Regional Hospital Foundation is within striking distance of its goal to raise $5 million dollars over five years to supplement a major expansion and renovation project at the Chaleur Regional Hospital in Bathurst.

The foundation announced nearly $400,000.00 from its latest round of donors last night, brining the total funds raised to $4,833,120.00 or 97 per cent of its total goal:

  • Physicians ($216,540);        
  • Golf tournament ($56,384);    
  • Maurice Gas & Convenience ($56,384);    
  • Rocket Enterprises Inc / Richard Family and Comeau Family ($30,000);

  • Foyer Chez Annie ($10,000);
  • Northern Furniture ($10,000);
  • R.H. Frenette Group ($10,000).

Vitalite Health Network CEO Gilles Lanteigne says the campaign will result in new cutting-edge equipment being added to the project so that health care services can be better tailored for the region's current and future needs.

The Chaleur Regional Hospital Foundation has been a partner of the Chaleur Regional Hospital since 1990 and has invested more than $12 million in projects impacting the quality of patient care.
