ESTEVAN - St. Joseph’s Hospital has announced that the St. Joseph’s Health Care Auxiliary has made another payment of $55,000 towards their commitment of $320,000 to purchase a new x-ray unit, along with related renovations for the diagnostic imaging department at the hospital.
The most recent $55,000 donation brings the total contribution to $255,000 of their $320,000 commitment.
In the past five years, the auxiliary has contributed well over $500,000 towards laboratory upgrades, new resident beds for the St. Joseph’s special care home and the present x-ray project. They credit their fundraising success to ongoing fundraising as well as significant donations and bequests from the Estevan community.
The auxiliary is also a United Way Estevan member agency.
Hospital executive director Greg Hoffort praised the St. Joseph’s Health Care Auxiliary.
“Their efforts have made a significant difference to the services provided at St. Joseph’s Hospital, and their hard work continues to bring a positive effect to the lives of many in southeast Saskatchewan.”
