GFAC
Members of the Board of Directors of the Grocery Foundation of Atlantic Canada (GFAC) were at the Dr. Georges-L.-Dumont University Hospital Centre recently to present a $50,000 cheque. With this year’s donation, GFAC has now reached $500,000 in total donations to the Dr. Georges-L.-Dumont University Hospital Centre.

The Grocery Foundation of Atlantic Canada was created in 1999 for one purpose: to give kids a good start.

Donations from GFAC have had a very positive impact on the quality of care offered at the Dr. Georges-L.-Dumont University Hospital Centre. Funds have allowed the medical personnel from the Dr. Georges-L.-Dumont University Hospital Centre’s Mother-Child Care Unit to participate in a specialized training program called MOREOB over a three-year period.

The MOREOB program improves patient safety through professional development and improves performance among medical professionals and administrators in hospital obstetric units. Each team of physicians, gynecologists, obstetricians and nurses receives the same training. They practise emergency procedures together, attend workshops and improve their knowledge and understanding of their role in emergencies and other situations.

The CHU Dumont Foundation is very grateful for GFAC’s tremendous support.
