The Scarborough Hospital Foundation (TSHF) is partnering with Fairchild Radio to broadcast a live Radiothon on Thursday, June 5 to raise money for urgently needed medical equipment.
The live broadcast will take place at The Scarborough Hospital’s (TSH) General campus and will feature touching interviews from TSH physicians, patients, nurses, volunteers and staff. 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 June 5 by:
- Calling 416-431-8152 (local) or 1-844-224-3863 (toll free) ;
- Making a donation at the drive-thru location at the Chronic Kidney Disease entrance, at the first driveway on Lawrence Avenue East;
- Visiting the Radiothon booth at the General campus’ main entrance, in the west wing by the Tim Hortons; or
- Dropping in to the Fairchild Radio office at 151 Esna Park Drive, Unit 26-29 in Markham during business hours.
The overall fundraising goal is $100,000. There will be special giveaway items for donations at $30 or more (while quantities last). The top three donors will receive a surprise gift for their generosity.
Proceeds from the fundraiser will go to fund the following equipment and programs at the hospital’s two campuses:
- More hospital beds – Mental Health
- A new cardiac monitor – Maternal Newborn and Child Care
- An electromyography machine – Cancer Care
- An additional dialysis machine – Nephrology and Dialysis
- Various orthopaedic tools – Division of Orthopaedics
“Our goal for the Radiothon is to raise money for urgently needed equipment that will improve access to the quality health care provided by the hospital,” says Michael Mazza, President and CEO, TSHF. “When our physicians, nurses and medical staff have the best equipment available, they can provide the best care possible to their patients.”
Donations to The Scarborough Hospital can be made online.
