Farnell Packaging Donates $100,000 towards Above and Beyond Campaign  

DARTMOUTH, NS (September 21, 2019) – Farnell Packaging has made a generous $100,000 pledge to the Dartmouth General’s $13 million Above and Beyond Campaign in support of the Dartmouth General’s redevelopment project.

“The Foundation would like to thank Farnell Packaging for their amazing gift and for their commitment to making a difference in the community,” says Stephen Harding, President and CEO of the Dartmouth General Hospital Foundation. “Farnell Packaging is a business that recognizes the need to help others and we are so honored that they generously stepped up and demonstrated their corporate responsibility by supporting the Dartmouth General Hospital.”

Farnell Packaging’s pledge will help fund the latest equipment and tools for the Redevelopment Project, which will be placed in our new and renovated spaces, enhancing the way we are able to deliver care. The addition of new technologies and equipment will help with major concerns, such as wait times for orthopedic and endoscopic procedures, allowing our healthcare team to more quickly and efficiently diagnose and treat patients.

“One of the core values at Farnell Packaging is social responsibility and our donation to the Dartmouth General is just one way we are proud to exemplify this value and help our community,” notes Debby Farnell Rudolph, Executive Vice President of Farnell Packaging.

The Foundation is pleased to recognize Farnell Packaging’s gift with the naming dedication of the CT Scanner Suite in our Diagnostic Imaging Department. The Diagnostic Imaging Department is just one area that will be renovated and reconfigured as part of the project and will result in improved patient flow, comfort and privacy, and it will become completely digital, incorporating the latest technologies and equipment to better treat patients.

 “We are pleased to contribute to a project that will affect the community that we work in, and directly impact care for our employees and their families,” says Judy Farnell, Vice President of Human Resources. “The Dartmouth General will mean so much for not only residents of Dartmouth, but for residents from all over Halifax, and we are happy to help them expand their role to help others.”
