The Northern Lights Health Foundation is getting a sizeable donation for their Gratitude Campaign.
On Thursday, A.P.E. Maintenance gave the group $60,000 for their Minimally Invasive Suites – one of the last projects needing funding.
“By making this donation, A.P.E. Maintenance is expressing how much they believe in the project and how important it is to the entire region,” said Cindy Amerongen, Executive Director of the Health Foundation.
“We are so grateful for their leadership and hope it inspires other businesses to get involved in the campaign.”
The $16 million campaign started back in 2016 with the goal of funding eight projects which includes clinics in Anzac and Conklin, palliative care suites, and the continuing care floor at the NLRHC.
The MIS project is the largest and costliest item – costing around $7.6 million. The money would be used on upgrades for equipment and technology in four of the current operating rooms.
“The upgrade to MIS technology will affect so many people. Having this modern and innovative equipment will help the Health Centre recruit new surgeons and will also result in people getting back to their families and back to work much faster.”
So far, they’ve been able to raise over $4 million.
