CAISSE ALLIANCE DONATES $100,000 TO THE WEST NIPISSING GENERAL HOSPITAL
Sturgeon Falls, September 29, 2020 – During this time of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Sturgeon Falls branch of Caisse Alliance announces a $100,000 donation to the West Nipissing General Hospital towards the purchase of a CT scanner.
Caisse Alliance has nearly 300 employees in 30 branches across 24 Northern Ontario communities. With the goal of supporting regional economic development and remaining a solid example of cooperation, Caisse Alliance has six Regional Cooperative Committees (RCC) consisting of members from each of our regions. These representatives are the voice of our 50,000 members.
This is an important donation from Caisse Alliance’s Community Fund. In fact, the members of the Regional Cooperative Committee (RCC) have agreed to donate this amount to support the residents of the Nipissing communities. “We are aware that patients often have to travel long distances to get an exam. This is why we strongly believe that such an instrument is crucial for the West Nipissing General Hospital,” said Marcy Lemieux, Regional Manager, Nipissing Central of Caisse Alliance.
“On behalf of the West Nipissing General Hospital, the Board of Directors, patients and staff, we are very grateful for this generous donation towards the purchase of our CT scanner. The $100,000 donation from Caisse Alliance will allow West Nipissing patients and residents to obtain faster diagnosis and medical procedures, explains Cynthia Désormiers, President and CEO of the West Nipissing General Hospital. This donation and the continued involvement in our community greatly reflect the Caisse’s values, which are to bring its cooperative difference to life on a daily basis by listening to the needs of its communities. It was a pleasure to work with Marcy Lemieux, Caisse Alliance’s Regional Manager, Nipissing Central Region and Alexandre Laferrière, Assisted Operations & Transactions Manager, Nipissing Central Region.”
Always attentive to our members’ needs, we are human, available and connected.
