Charity effort to top up hospital services

A baby in neonatal intensive care, a mother receiving treatment for cancer, a grandfather recovering from a stroke – the Hats on for Healthcare program helps them all, says Pat Roberts.

An administrative assistant in Facility Services, she will join people all across the city wearing hats of all kinds on February 15 to solicit donations to the Windsor Regional Hospital Foundation. The foundation supports programs from paediatrics to oncology, mental health to surgery.

“I know first-hand that Windsor Regional Hospital provides first-rate care, but I also know that patients benefit from little extras made possible by the generous donations of the community,” says Roberts.

Last year, she raised $500 in pledges from campus friends and colleagues. She is hoping at least to equal that mark this time around. To make a donation, contact Roberts at 519-253-3000, ext. 2158 or e-mail Additional information about Hats on for Healthcare is available at or by calling 519-285-2656.
