There will soon be some new additions around the Regional Hospital thanks to the efforts of the Saint John Regional Hospital Auxiliary.

The Auxiliary has approved over $80,000 of funding for a number of projects including new recliner chairs for the Labour and Delivery unit - and - customizable wheel chairs for the Neurology and Rehab units - president Katie Rogers says the Auxiliary has donated over 5-million dollars to patient and family comfort programs since the hospital opened in 1982.

The Auxiliary raises its funds through sales at the gift shop - the uniform shop - and - hair salon as well as patient referrals to Phillips Life Line alert systems.
