The Scarborough Hospital Foundation (TSHF) is proud to welcome back Fairchild Radio to broadcast live on AM 1430 and FM 88.9 from the hospital’s General campus in support of urgently needed medical equipment.
The live broadcast between 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. will feature touching interviews from staff and physicians at The Scarborough Hospital. Guests will speak about their specialized area of care, their personal and professional experiences with health care, and how the urgently needed medical equipment will benefit the Scarborough community.
Listeners of Fairchild Radio (AM 1430 and FM 88.9) can make a donation between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. on Thursday, June 18 by:
- Calling 416-431-8152 (local) or 1-844-224-3863 (toll free);

Proceeds from the fundraiser will go to fund equipment and program needs at The Scarborough Hospital such as:
