Colleen Jones, from the St. Joseph's Health Care Foundation described the work their Foundation does in helping St. Joe's get the extras not funded by the province.  One of the major efforts the foundation is helping with is mental health imitative for youth and for those needing assistance in finding the proper medication.  The Foundation also funded the refurbishment of 11 operation rooms at the hospital.  In the area of research, the Foundation provided a "state of the art" microscope allowing researchers to more closely identify disease at the genetic and cellular level.   Among the other initiatives by the hospital and the Foundation is a outreach program for indigenous people.  The work of these foundations make our community a leader in medical research and care.
