For over 30 years, Brookfield Renewable has demonstrated their commitment to the health of our community through their support of Sault Area Hospital Foundation. This year, they’ve made a pledge to give $50,000 over two years – bringing their total giving to over $900,000 in the past three decades.
Brookfield’s pledge is not tied to one specific area of the hospital – but will be used to help support the purchase of equipment across all departments of the hospital.
“We wanted to ensure that our gift would help as many patients as possible, and we trust the Sault Area Hospital Foundation to put the money to use where it will do the most good for the most people.” Jim Deluzio, Vice-President of Operations at Brookfield
Sault Area Hospital Foundation is grateful for every donation we receive, but unrestricted gifts like the one from Brookfield Renewable are especially important in meeting the needs of our hospital. Many may not understand that our community buys the equipment in our hospital through their generous donations. Unrestricted dollars are often the first to be put to use for the most urgent needs, helping ensure our caregivers have the tools they need to provide care in our community.
“Brookfield Renewable’s generous donation is poised and ready to help the most patients it possibly can. Their unrestricted gift will be used to purchase the highest priority equipment needed today to provide care in our community.” Teresa Martone, Executive Director with SAHF.
While Brookfield Renewable’s past gifts have helped to purchase critical equipment for SAH’s lab, telemedicine and diagnostic imaging programs, their decision to not restrict their gift this year comes from their love for Sault Ste. Marie.
“We had to step back and say, ‘what’s best for this community, our coworkers and their families, our neighbours, and our friends?’ Ensuring Sault Area Hospital can take care of as many patients as possible; well, that was the answer” says Jim Deluzio.
Sault Area Hospital Foundation extends sincere thanks to Brookfield Renewable and their staff for their incredible support. They are truly living our hospital’s values – partnering with the Foundation to ensure our community will receive outstanding care for years to come.
