The part­ners at Macbean Tessem made a gen­er­ous $10,000 do­na­tion in sup­port of the Dr. No­ble Ir­win Re­gional Health­care Foun­da­tion on May 10.

The do­na­tion will sup­port equip­ment pur­chases in the Maternity De­part­ment at the Cy­press Re­gional Hospi­tal.

“We just felt it was a way to say thanks to the cit­i­zens of Swift Cur­rent and sur­round­ing com­mu­nity. Its been a real priv­i­lege for us to prac­tice law in this com­mu­nity. We thought of ways to try and give back, and we know Clay and the work that the Foun­da­tion has done. And it just felt that this was time to do it,” ex­plained Foster Tessem.

The law firm has been part of the com­mu­nity since 1905, and Tessem felt this was an ideal do­na­tion be­cause of the wide spread im­pact of health­care to the re­gion.

“We meet clients in nurs­ing homes. We see the work that the Foun­da­tion is do­ing in the City. It’s just such an in­te­gral part of our health­care.”

Clay Thomp­son, Ex­ec­u­tive Di­rec­tor of the Dr. No­ble Ir­win Re­gional Health­care Foun­da­tion, noted that the do­na­tion will serve as a kick off for a $120,000 cam­paign to up­date equip­ment in the Maternity De­part­ment at the Cy­press Re­gional Hospi­tal. Their cam­paign will help pur­chase three new birthing beds to re­place a trio of older units, plus it will help buy a new fe­tal mon­i­tor along with an­other in­fant warmer.

“It’s al­ways nice when we get an op­por­tu­nity to get a gift from a group like this… and lets peo­ple know there’s an op­por­tu­nity and en­cour­ages oth­ers to do the same,” Thomp­son said.
