On August 17th, Mrs. Brigitte Mathers generously donated $93,000 to the Fondation Hôpital Saint-Eustache. This donation will be used to purchase 12 pieces of equipment and to improve outreach care for residents of the Lower Laurentians. The equipment includes:

  • A portable ultrasound machine for the COPD clinic;
  • A specialized treatment table for the specialized outpatient clinic;
  • A vital signs monitor for the Medicine 3e bloc E;
  • A sequential compression device for physiotherapy;
  • A vital signs monitor for Medicine 1C;
  • Four uninterruptible power supply devices for endoscopy;
  • A medical dryer for the unité de retraitement;
  • Two negative pressure therapy pumps for surgery.

The Mathers Family has been generously supporting the Fondation since its inception in 1990. Their contributions have totaled close to $2 million and have helped the Fondation fulfill its mission for more than 30 years.

In September 2012, the Mathers family was recognized as a major donor for their significant contribution to the Fondation. In honor of their generosity, the Hôpital de Saint-Eustache’s new surgical unit was named after them.

Brigitte Mathers, Lyne Des Trois Maisons (Managing Director of the Fondation), and Hélène Chrétien (Director of Development and Partnerships) graciously accepted this generous donation.
