The Gift of World-Class Cardiovascular Care

January 20, 2018


The Royal Canadian Legion – Fort William Polish Veterans Branch 149 continued their long history of giving recently with a donation of $2,000 to support cardiovascular care at our Hospital. Pictured (left) presenting the donation is Legion President, Slav Falkowski.

Glenn Craig (right), President and CEO, Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Foundation enjoyed a delicious meal at the Legion prior to receiving the donation, which was thanks to their Poppy Fund. “We are always deeply honoured when community service groups, such as the Royal Canadian Legion, choose to support our Hospital and our community’s healthcare,” he said. “This particular donation has been designated to support our recently announced cardiovascular surgery program, which will drastically impact the lives of approximately 1,000 patients and families each year. The Legion’s foresight and leadership in advancing this program is remarkable and we are truly grateful for their gift.”
