A Healthy part­ner­ship

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Ma­gog Vic­to­ria Vanier

Last Fri­day, the CSSS Mem­phrem­a­gog held a spe­cial evening to rec­og­nize lo­cal artists who ex­hibit their work in the hos­pi­tal. More than forty peo­ple rep­re­sent­ing the artists, the health cen­tre’s man­age­ment and board mem­bers as well as board mem­bers of the hos­pi­tal’s Foun­da­tion were present. The event high­lighted the be­gin­ning of a part­ner­ship which con­trib­utes not only to im­prov­ing the qual­ity of life of the hos­pi­tal’s res­i­dents, clients and per­son­nel, but also one that con­trib­utes to the vi­tal­ity of the arts in the com­mu­nity.

Presently, ten artists are ex­pos­ing their work within the health cen­tre and have agreed to do­nate 20% of the price of each work that is sold. You can learn more about these artists on the web­site of the CSSSM un­der “Place à nos artistes”.
