Clinic 1 Expansion
The Foundation’s most ambitious fundraising campaign. Patients from across New Brunswick and PEI receive care from some of the world’s top physicians in Clinic 1, the busiest clinic at the Saint John Regional Hospital offering 31 specialities and serving over 40,000 patients annually.
Untouched since 1982, major expansion and enhancements are vital to treat an ever-increasing number of patients. Ambulatory care is one of the more significant growth areas in health care, as advancements in technologies and treatments allow more patients to be cared for in an outpatient setting as opposed to being admitted to the hospital.
Through your generosity and the support from the community, we can continue to drive health care innovation in our province, improving the lives of thousands of patients requiring speciality services or minor surgical procedures.
Your clinic. Your health. Grow with us.
Our current space is cramped and dated, with very little privacy and overflowing waiting rooms. It nowhere near reflects the high level of care and world-class medical expertise available in our clinics. From broken bones to cancer and heart disease; at some point in our lives, we will all come into contact with these types of care.
"There are many days when our waiting room is standing room only due to the number of clinics being conducted on any given day,” says Margo. “There are at least 1 to 2 days a week that we see over 200 patients. That’s why we’re excited to see the expansion of our clinic come to life. Our workflow will improve drastically with the expansion, and so will the quality of care we are able to provide. We would like to thank all of the donors who are making The Give Clinic 1 Expansion a reality."
The expansion is so important, we see thousands of patients a year in one narrow hall with seven rooms. We are vastly overwhelmed by the volume of patients and our physical space. The standards of care have also changed since the clinic was first build in 1982. This expansion will completely revolutionize Clinic 1 and the care we deliver.
