On Friday, November 18, 2016, from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m., Country 106.5 will broadcast real stories of hope, healing and innovation, live from St. Joseph General Hospital’s foyer to raise funds for the hospital.


Funds raised through the St. Joseph’s General Hospital Radiothon, presented by Lakeland Respiratory Consulting Services Ltd.will be used to purchase a Medical Simulation and Clinical Skills Centre to help rural physicians and health care providers stay up-to-date in emergency medicine and trauma response in Vegreville. This technology will allow the hospital to train other rural health care professionals from the surrounding communities.

A key component to providing a wide range of emergency services in a rural setting is ongoing education and training.

The simulation centre will train staff to respond to a wide variety of medical emergencies and ensure patients in Vegreville receive the right care, in the right place, at the right time.

Help us raise funds to improve care in Vegreville and the surrounding communities.
