You Can Support the Purchase of New Equipment for the Northern Health Region.

The Northern Health Foundation is holding the Great Raffle 2022 50-50 Community Draw all this month.  Board member Anthony McInnis says they are continuing to purchase needed equipment for the Health Region.  He explains they came up with this idea to invite our residents to help raise funds for IV pumps for all facilities throughout the Northern Health Region.  He notes each of the IV pump basic units are about 25 hundred dollars and with the more sophisticated ones the price obviously goes up and throughout the Region in the next coming years they have to replace 290 pumps and that’s about three quarters of a million dollars.

Ticket sales continue all this month with the draw being held in March 1st.They are available online only by going to raffle.link/nhf or visit their website www.northernhealthfoundation.com.
