The Foundation IN NUMBERS
Our Objectives - 3 main axes
Because of its desire to support the diversity of the clienteles served by the regional hospital centre and its points of service in the greater Saint-Jérôme area, the Fondation Hôpital régional Saint-Jérôme has made it its mission to support development. Such development translates into a variety of spheres, ranging from support to patient comfort, the well-being of CHSLD residents, the implementation of various programs, including mental health, and the purchase of medical equipment. Since the role of the regional hospital is to serve all of the Laurentides, the Foundation is in a position to contribute to the health of all Laurentians.
