Queens Health Project Nears Fundraising Goal

Members of the fundraising committee behind the Queens General Health expansion project can see the finish line. The community campaign to raise $1.5 million began last November and the latest figures indicate the group is only $30,000 shy of its overall goal. Campaign chair Christopher Clarke says residents have supported the fundraising efforts from the very beginning.

The Queens Foundation will contribute $11 million towards the expansion with additional support from the Region of Queens, and the Nova Scotia Government. The $16 million dollars project includes a new collaborative health care clinic in Liverpool and extensive upgrades at the hospital's existing 22 bed medical unit.
