2 Saint John Regional Hospital Foundation

A letter from our Chair & CEO Celebrating your impact on NB healthcare As we talk with donors throughout the year, there is a common theme referred to in our conversations: local impact. More and more, Canadians are choosing to focus their philanthropic dollars on investments that make a tangible and local difference in the lives of their families, friends and communities. As New Brunswickers, this isn’t new. You’ve been doing this for decades now. In fact, your contributions to the Saint John Regional Hospital Foundation now total more than $91 Million since our inception! For your own personal and special reasons, you have chosen to make a difference in the healthcare provided right here in New Brunswick. And what a tremendous difference you have made. Through your generosity, the Foundation was able to grant close to $10 Million to local, regional and provincial health initiatives this past year. This impressive total represents investments in Innovative Technology, Impactful Research, Scholarships and Professional Development Opportunities, Thoughtful Patient Care Initiatives and a record setting year of granting for Mental Health Programs across the Province. You have trusted our organization as the steward of your philanthropy and for that we are incredibly grateful and mindful of our responsibility to you, our valued donors. Our Board and staff work diligently on your behalf to uncover the most urgent and innovative ideas that will benefit physicians, nurses and other healthcare professionals and, as a result, the thousands of patients they treat every day.

As you read through the stories herein and review the numerous projects that YOU have funded – projects that simply would not have happened without your support – we hope that like us, you feel the pride of belonging to a community that can accomplish great things. Thank you for your continued support. Sincerely,

Steve Titus, Chair

Partners in helping people be healthy Good health lies at the heart of our daily quality of lifeit is what all New Brunswickers want for themselves and those they love. It is through working with key stakeholders, like the Saint John Regional Hospital Foundation, that we are positioned to best serve our population. Upon becoming active in my role in January of this year, I was eager to not only familiarize myself with the work of the Saint John Regional Hospital Foundation but to continue building on the strong partnership. The philanthropic support that is so generously provided by the Foundation’s donors is a vital part of delivering exceptional patient care in the greater Saint John area as well as across the province through specialized provincial programs. Thank you for your incredible support-we are so grateful for the work you make possible through the Saint John Regional Hospital Foundation, and we look forward to our continued partnership. .

Karen McGrath President & CEO, Horizon Health Network

It is with excitment that we welcome Karen McGrath as President & CEO of the Horizon Health Network. We look forward to working with her, and watching her support healthcare in New Brunswick.

Raising the bar for healthcare professionals For the third year in a row, thanks to the support of donors like you and the Saint John Regional Hospital Foundation, over 185 Registered Nurses (RNs) and Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs) from the Saint John Region met once again for two days of networking and professional development focused on developing their skills to cope with the increasing and ever changing demands of providing care. Nursing and the Future: Skills for a Changing Landscape was made possible through generous donations to the Foundation’s Education pillar. Conference attendees were met with stories of challenge and inspiration, and left feeling uplifted by the discussions and shared experiences had with those in their field. They took with them new tools with which to approach their jobs, providing patients with inspired care, every day. The immense value of your generosity, as provided to our nurses at this conference through personal and professional development, cannot be overstated. As the heart of our hospital community, opportunities like the nursing conference raise the bar for all nurses, and serve as a reminder of their value and importance at the Saint John Regional Hospital, and in New Brunswick healthcare.

Keeping families together through care As part of our successful 2016 Pediatric GIVE campaign, we were pleased to add 11 sleeper chairs to both the Pediatric Unit and Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. The Dalhousie Medicine New Brunswick Charity Golf Classic was also pleased to put their fundraising efforts in support of the purchase of sleeper chairs. These much-needed chairs will give the parents of children receiving care and treatment at the SJRH the opportunity to rest during what is often a very difficult time. Valerie Cobham-Richards, Nurse Director of the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, believes the chairs will bring a much higher level of patient comfort to those staying, but not receiving treatment, at the hospital. The chairs will bring a higher level of comfort to parents who want to stay close to their fragile babies. This is a very hard, emotional, but usually happy time for parents but it is also a very tiring time. They are worried and excited about their babies and so sleep is not always a first priority. These chairs will give them a chance to lie down comfortably, close to their babies, to recharge their batteries. We are so grateful to those who helped fund these chairs for our parents.

Advancing healthcare in New Brunswick through research The research lab at the Saint John Regional Hospital is a busy place, with physicians, medical students and postgrads from a variety of fields conducting research that helps improve patient care, work towards treatment, and in some cases, find a cure for disease and health-related effects of social conditions. Foundation donors play a big role in funding important research happening right here at the SJRH, last year providing $689,794 for various research projects.

As a donor, you are directly involved in these projects getting off the ground. Your support can provide funding for anything from a post-graduate research assistant to a summer student, or for the purchase of supplies used in research. Community support not only plays a significant role in getting potentially life-saving research projects off the ground, but also serves as a reminder to physicians that we believe in transformative power these research projects can have on our province.


One such project, led by Dr. Edward Abraham and Dr. Neil Manson is studying the effects of how an epidural injection used during spinal surgery may aid in patient recovery time, and comfort.

Funding life-saving equipment Through the generosity of our donors, the Saint John Regional Hospital is now offering patients suffering from autoimmune issues, graft-versus-host disease and a variety of other ailments, photopheresis treatment. These gifts allowed for the purchase of two machines, both of which will serve the Atlantic Canadian population. Before the machines were installed in September, patients seeking photopheresis treatment had to travel to Montreal or Toronto, a financial impossibility for many patients.

Photopheresis patient Ashley Hunter, 22, is one such patient. In 2012 she was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma, and after a blood transfusion, was diagnosed with graft-versus-host disease. For her, the answer was photopheresis treatment, which rapidly spins patients’ blood through a centrifuge, separating the red and white blood cells, allowing for a drug called Uvidex to be injected into the white blood cells. When my Halifax doctors told me they were offering photopheresis in Saint John, we thought, ‘this might be a saviour.’ For me and everyone else who is on the treatment, it is a blessing. I can’t say enough. Whether they know it or not, the people who donated this machine are saving lives.

Changing lives one event at a time Every year, the Foundation works with various third-party groups, companies, individuals and institutions to create fun and unique events, all in support of New Brunswick healthcare. These events play out across the city, and throughout the province. From the Dalhousie Medicine New Brunswick Charity Golf Classic, held at the Rockwood Park Golf Course, to Fusion Trivia Night in the heart of Uptown Saint John, or a charity bike trip from Saint John to PEI in support of patient comfort items in the Oncology Unit, those we partner with are passionate in their support for their local healthcare provider, the Saint John Regional Hospital.

It’s through the continued support of donors like you, participants, and the hard-working organizers of these events, that we are able to provide New Brunswickers with the best healthcare possible. We can’t wait to reach new audiences in 2017-18, and look forward to seeing what fun and exciting opportunities come our way. If you’re interested in hosting a third party event, please contact SJRHF Community Engagement Coordinator, Samantha Weldon at: or (506) 648-7566

Like legions of Saint John residents I’ve been drawn, over the years, into the hospital system; as a patient myself, as a mother, and for the most trying period of my life, as a daughter caring for two sick and ultimately dying parents. You can’t truly appreciate how complicated, responsive, and, yes, emotionally draining the healthcare system is, not only for the patients, but for the patient caregivers -- the nurses and doctors -- until you are inside the system, day in and day out trying to do all you can for your loved ones. I felt it was important to give back, albeit in a small way, to say thank you to so many health care professionals and the Saint John Regional Hospital Foundation who went above and beyond their daily ‘job descriptions’. They worked to make my parents lives the best they could be under incredibly trying circumstances. Any type of fundraising for this organization is time, effort and volunteer hours, well spent.
