Le 18 janvier 2016 – Les fondations des hôpitaux du Restigouche, de la région Chaleur, de la Péninsule acadienne ainsi que des régions de Grand-Sault et de Saint-Quentin, en partenariat avec les Caisses populaires acadiennes du Nord-Est participantes, sont fières d’annoncer que la onzième édition de l’Étoile du Nord a permis de recueillir la somme totale de 97 040,72 $.

Mini-Christmas trees were sold in various businesses and participating branches of the Caisses populaires acadiennes during the month of December. “The partnership between the above foundations and the region’s Caisses populaires clearly demonstrates that by working together, our communities can accomplish great things. Our staff members, who adopted the project, continue to be directly involved in its success. Mini-Christmas trees decorated the walls of the region’s Caisses populaires acadiennes and demonstrated how much the people of our communities support our local healthcare facilities”, said Mr. Hermel Chiasson, representative of the participating Caisses populaires acadiennes.


The representatives from each foundation wish to thank the participating Caisses populaires acadiennes. 100% of the funds raised with the Northern Star will be used to purchase equipment that will improve the services provided in our local hospitals. As for the Restigouche area, the Northern Star made it possible to collect $13,205, which will go toward the purchase of 2 high-definition endoscopy monitors for the Surgical Suite.
