The Manitouwadge General Hospital is pleased to announce that the recipient of the 2012 Judith C. Harris Bursary is Elaine Milks.
She will pursue her university education in the health care field.
CEO Jocelyn Bourgoin presented the $1,000 bursary letter at the 2012 High School Graduation Ceremonies on June 27th.
The bursary is presented to a local student who plans to pursue their education in a health care related field with the hope that someday, the Hospital may benefit from having our own “home grown students” return our the community to work as a health care professional.
MGH Ladies Auxiliary Meets Obligation
Ladies Auxiliary President Linda Killingbeck recently presented Hospital CEO Mr. Jocelyn Bourgoin with a final check in the amount of $3,750.00 towards the purchase of a Stratus CS Stat Fluometric Chemistry Analyzer used to perform tests on blood samples. In 2011, the Auxiliary donated $6,750.00 to the Hospital. Mr. Bourgoin thanked the volunteers for their dedicated work. Their efforts are a key component in ensuring the Hospital has state of the art equipment for staff and patients.
Mr. Bourgoin commented that the Ladies Auxiliary often toils in the shadows and is not always recognized for their ongoing efforts. Their Christmas Tea Bazaar, Valentine Day Chocolate sale and Kozy Korner Gift Shop are their main sources of revenue. The next fundraising project will focus on a Pain Medication Infusion Pump. These pumps are designed to be used by the patient for ongoing pain control through a controlled yet continuous infusion of medication and can be of great benefit for palliative care and other serious conditions. Recent donations have been received for such a pump but more is needed. The Ladies Auxiliary has committed to raise the rest of the funds for the pump.
