SAULT AREA HOSPITAL FOUNDATION
Representatives from McDougall Energy and Imperial Oil visited the Sault Area Hospital (SAH) to make a gift in support of the Surgical Care in this community.
Jennifer McDougall, Human Resources Manager, Michael Magli, Corporate Marketing Manager from McDougall Energy and Martyn Iles, Senior Accounts Executive, Fuels Marketing – Wholesale & Specialties from Imperial Oil presented a $10,000 cheque to the Sault Area Hospital Foundation (SAHF) to purchase new Endoscopy Scopes for the Surgical Suites at SAH.
During their visit they received a tour of the Endoscopy Suite and demonstration of the Endoscopy Scope systems from Internal Medicine Physician, Dr. Sirajeddin Ben Musa.
This is the second year in a row that the two companies have made a gift to the SAHF to help purchase equipment essential to patient care in the Algoma District.
“It is our duty as citizens of this community, to ensure the medical professionals at our Hospital have the tools to continue to provide excellent care to every patient. Healthcare is one of our Community Investment Program priorities and McDougall Energy along with Imperial Oil want to support this community as best we can,” remarked Darren McDougall, President of McDougall Energy.
The Sault Area Hospital Foundation’s capital equipment list currently has over $160,000 needed specifically to purchase equipment for Surgical Care.
“This generous donation is going to help maintain the excellent Surgical Care here at SAH. All of the equipment to be purchased this year will help surgeons diagnose, treat and ultimately aid patients back to full health. The support from our community partners helps ensure that the healthcare professionals at SAH have the appropriate equipment available,” said Cheryl Pavoni, Executive Director.
The full capital equipment list for this fiscal year is available on the SAHF website.
The Sault Area Hospital Foundation, on behalf of the physicians, staff and patients of the Surgical Care Suites (present and future), would like to thank the McDougall Energy and Imperial Oil employees for their generosity.
It is great community support and commitment to healthcare, like this, that provides the patients of Algoma with the outstanding healthcare they deserve.
