‘Care Close to Home’ campaign kicks off with stretcher push

Riverside Foundation for Health Care is getting its “Care Close to Home” fundraising campaign rolling next month with a “stretcher push” from Rainy River to Fort Frances.

“We think this is a great opportunity for the whole district to show their support of the renovations at both the Emo Health Centre and La Verendrye hospital,” said Foundation director Teresa Hazel.

Rae hangs up nursing hat

RN Arlene Rae started her career at La Verendrye hospital in Fort Frances in January, 1964 and put in her last day back in December.

Hopefully, this sends a message to all that our local hospital has been worthy of Rae’s excellent nursing ability for more than 35 years.

DSSAB to handle ambulance service

The Rainy River District Social Service Administration Board received a brief letter from Health minister Elizabeth Witmer confirming it has been designated as the land ambulance delivery agent for the area.

DSSAB beat out the Town of Fort Frances, which also had applied to administer the ambulance service.
