Tbaytel Announces $500,000 to Support Local Cardiovascular Surgery (Jan 15, 2018)

The Cardiovascular Surgery Program at the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre got a significant boost today. Announced this past summer by the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care, the Hospital has been given support to proceed with the development of a program to offer both vascular and cardiac surgery in Thunder Bay. While the provincial government has committed to funding 90% of the construction costs associated with this program, the community must step up to the plate and cover the remaining 10% of construction costs plus 100% of the capital equipment costs. “Tbaytel is happy to announce on behalf of our over 400 employees, that the company will be donating $500,000 to the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Foundation in support of the Cardiovascular Surgery Program,” said Tbaytel President & CEO Dan Topatigh. “Tbaytel is extremely proud to be providing such a significant gift to this much needed, long-awaited program. Having access to care and services in our own neighbourhood of Thunder Bay and throughout Northwestern Ontario, is vitally important and partnerships are key to building what we need right here at home.”
