On Friday, November 12th, 2021, the Sault Area Hospital Gift Shop began a transition to a new service model. This model will transition the oversight of the Gift Shop from the SAH Volunteer Association to the Sault Area Hospital Foundation(SAHF). This new model involves SAHF partnering with a local vendor that will take over the day-to-day operations of the gift shop.
The Gift Shop will be closed beginning November 12th, 2021, at 4:00 pm for a few weeks to facilitate this transition.
More information about the transition and an announcement about the new vendor will be shared in the coming weeks.
SAH would like to thank the Volunteer Association and their dedicated Volunteers for overseeing the operations of the Gift Shop for many years. Their incredible hard work and unwavering commitment have delivered over $70,000 per year donated to the SAH Foundation. Additionally, over the years, Gift Shop operations have supported several significant fundraising efforts, including the new hospital build and the purchase of cardiac care equipment.
This transition to a new service model will build on the Gift Shop’s success and provide exciting new opportunities to support SAH’s delivery of outstanding patient-centred care.
