The St. Martha’s Regional Hospital Foundation has chosen the equipment that will be purchased from money it raises in the annual 989XFM Hospital Help Day Fab Five Raffle next week.
Foundation Chair Joe MacDonald says it will buy a portable obstetrical ultrasound.
Up to now, hospital staff  has borrowed a similar piece of equipment from the Emergency Department, which has been at times disruptive for the ER.
The Hospital Help Day Radiothon will be Wednesday, October 25th on 989XFM.

By now, every household in Antigonish, Guysborough, Inverness and Richmond Counties will have received an envelope from St. Martha’s Regional Hospital Foundation.  It’s the second mail-out as part of the Foundation’s “The Time is Now” endowment campaign.  Foundation officials say a second mail appeal was initiated because some residents indicated they did not receive the letter.
Foundation Chair Joe MacDonald says a couple of years ago, the Foundation concluded that building an endowment fund was the right thing to do.
So far, the foundation has received pledges totalling $8.7 million, bringing its endowment to just over $12 million.
