The Brome-Missisquoi-Perkins Hospital Foundation announced today that the new hemato-oncology clinic will be officially named the Clinique Bergeron-Jetté, in recognition of the Bergeron-Jetté Foundation, whose president, Mrs. Marielle Jetté, has made a significant contribution to this project.
Since April 23rd, patients have welcomed in this modern facility, now located on the 3rd floor of the Hospital, which has more than tripled in size compared to the former clinic.
A total of 2.2 million, including 1.65 million from the Brome-Missisquoi-Perkins Hospital Foundation, was invested in the construction of the clinic previously located on the ground floor of the building. This project would not have been possible without the continued support of generous donors.
“We are very proud of the Foundation’s contribution to such a major project at Brome-Missisquoi-Perkins Hospital. This new clinic guarantees community-based and quality care to people in the region who have cancer,” explained Mr. Mario Lagimonière, Chairman of the Board of the Brome-Missisquoi-Perkins Hospital Foundation.
More than 6,000 medical visits and nearly 2,000 treatments were given to oncology patients during 2017-2018 in Cowansville. The redevelopment of this service within the Hospital will make it possible to meet the increasing demand, while offering more privacy and comfort to users.
