Spring Appeal to Benefit Newborns


Dear Friends of Healthcare,           


Spring is a season that is all about new growth, new beginnings and new life. With this season also comes a new opportunity to improve the quality of healthcare at our Regional Health Centre. The South and Central Health Foundation is asking for your help with a very special project that will have an impact upon all children just starting their new life.


With your donation to the Spring Project you will be supporting the well-being of infants born at the Central Newfoundland Regional Health Centre, along with their moms and families. At this time of scarce healthcare dollars, donors will make it possible to replace the aging Resuscitation equipment which is well over 20 years old. We will also purchase a medical grade Breast Feeding Pump.


When it comes to an infant in distress, time is as precious as the tiny patient. To achieve great results, you must rely on technology to help you with split-second preparation, accurate assessment, and rapid response. The Resuscitation Unit which we intend to provide is recommended by the medical professionals at the Janeway Hospital and it has the added benefit of being familiar to them should a baby in trauma need to be transferred to the Janeway.


You’ve been such a wonderful supporter of our healthcare system in the past as a donor to the South and Central Health Foundation. The improvements that have been made in Central Newfoundland thanks to kind people like you are simply incredible. In the past year, a third Trauma area within the Emergency Department has been equipped so that in life and death situations our medical professionals have the proper tools right at their fingertips. We are so proud of this success story and dozens of others. All of these are possible only because of people like you who give because you want to make a difference for yourself, for your loved ones and for your neighbors.


We are so thankful that our donors stand with us in challenging times as well as times of plenty. Our commitment to you is to use every dollar you donate to create the biggest impact. We are dedicated to making wise decisions on what we support and how we spend your donor dollars.


I am asking for your generosity for our Spring Project to support newborns in distress so that they will have a fighting chance. Our Foundation believes that this lifesaving equipment is important. I hope you will too. 

            Thank you so much for supporting the South and Central Health Foundation in the past. I hope that you will continue to find ways to support this charity and our local healthcare system in the future.
