Together, we are stronger
What every community around the world is facing is unprecedented. No one has been left untouched by the COVID-19 pandemic. But the one thing that unites us here is the true spirit of the Maritimes – with people coming together to help and support one another.
The IWK and its exceptional care team continues to be there for women and children every single day. Despite provincial border closures, the Health Centre is assuring patients and families in Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick and Newfoundland that their urgent care needs will continue to be met. The IWK will be there for you during this time of need.
And you, our Maritime community, has always been there for us. We are truly grateful for your ongoing generosity and today is no different. If you are interested in supporting the IWK’s emergency readiness and preparedness, your donation will be directed to the Health Centre’s highest priority needs at that time which may include:
virtual health care
supports for children with complex needs
virtual diagnostic imaging stations
well-being initiatives for our frontline staff for whom we are forever grateful
We still urgently need your help to complete the critical care redevelopment project. Right now, the IWK is building a new pediatric intensive care unit (PICU) that is vital to the region’s sickest and most vulnerable patients – and we need it now more than ever. As the current pandemic has shown us we can’t take health care, especially critical care, for granted.
Your support today will help moments of crisis now and in the future.
Thank you for standing up for our women and children. Together, we are forever grateful.
