Each year, The GIVE raises funds to support excellence and innovation in health care at the Saint John Regional Hospital. In 2016, we are supporting pediatric medicine because we know that when a child is sick, the whole family suffers. And our community is at its best when our children are healthy and happy.
The Pediatrics department at the Saint John Regional Hospital serves children from Sussex to St. Stephen, from birth to age 18. We have 120 dedicated pediatrics staff and 13 physicians committed to providing care for patients and their families.
Our goal is to treat our community’s children here, close to home – including those more serious cases that were referred to the IWK. In fact, regular IWK follow-up clinics in cardiac care, rheumatology, allergies and genetics are held at our hospital, so families can recover together at home.
With your help, we will raise funds to support projects covering a broad spectrum of pediatric services, including two simulation mannequins that will help our doctors, nurses and staff prepare for any medical emergency that may happen.
