The team


Established by a small group of passionate volunteers in 1989, the Foundation today occupies a prominent place in the Gaspé philanthropic landscape. Thanks to investments in medical equipment of nearly $4 million, first at the Maria's Hospital and, since 2006, in all the facilities that today form the Réseau local de services Baie-des- Chaleurs of the CISSS de la Gaspésie, the Foundation has contributed to the improvement of services, but also to their development by promoting the recruitment of specialists.

The population benefits directly from the new services made available thanks to the Foundation investments. Travel to other establishments being considerably reduced, patients can be cared for at home, surrounded by their loved ones. This situation has a positive impact on their physical condition, on the financial situation of their family as well as on the medical staff, who are less often called upon to accompany patients when they travel, which generates a reduction in costs for the establishment.

Finally, the new specialties established in the Baie-des-Chaleurs allow the creation of quality jobs and, often, the arrival of new families contributing to our community economically and socially.
