Doctors, Researchers, Patients Share Impact of Philanthropy

 

That’s a wrap! Today, the Health Sciences Centre Foundation (HSC Foundation) raised $211,933 during its 16th-annual Innovation HSC Radiothon, presented by Maric Homes.

From 6 AM to 6 PM, listeners from across the province tuned in to 680 CJOB, Power 97, and Peggy 99.1 to hear from fellow Manitobans who spoke of the excellent care they received at HSC. Research and health care leaders also provided insights into their innovative work, and how it helps patients and their loved ones.

“On behalf of the Board, staff, and volunteers of the HSC Foundation, I want to thank every donor, and partner interviewee whose generosity today will have an impact for many years to come,” said Jonathon Lyon, President & CEO, HSC Foundation. “In health care, every second counts; for Radiothon, every minute counts; and in philanthropy, every dollar counts. We are grateful.”

Money raised through the Radiothon enables the HSC Foundation to improve patient care at HSC through important research initiatives, the acquisition of cutting-edge medical equipment, and the development of new state-of-the-art facilities.

“We are proud to call Manitoba home and we firmly believe that we all have a role in supporting HSC, Manitoba’s hospital,” said Peri Maric, Vice President, Architectural Design at Maric Homes. “Our family has witnessed, first-hand, the compassion and high-level of care offered by HSC, and we want to ensure everyone in our community has access to the best care possible.”
