Today Health Sciences North’s (HSN) Learners’ Centre is one step closer to realization thanks to a generous donation of $400,000 from BMO Financial Group.
“We’re thrilled to contribute to HSN and help to make possible the building of what is sure to be a state-of-the-art facility that will have a positive impact on learning for many years to come,” said Gary Zubal, Regional Vice President, Ontario Northern Gateway, Personal Banking, BMO Bank of Montreal. “Education and healthcare are two areas that BMO remains committed to supporting, and this opportunity will lend to our legacy of partnering with organizations that share our vision for a better tomorrow.”
“Our partnership with the Northern Ontario School of Medicine has been instrumental in the recruitment of high quality providers in all disciplines,” said Dr Chris Bourdon, Vice President, Medical and Academic Affairs, HSN. “The Learners’ Center allows us to provide an environment to enhance the learning on our site. It will provide additional areas for learners to meet, discuss and simulate difficult patient situations and enhance their learning.”
“Health Sciences North Foundation would like to thank BMO Financial Group for their generous donation to HSN’s Learners’ Centre,” said Mary Lou Hussak, President and CEO, HSN Foundation. “Thanks to their outstanding support of health care in our community, HSN is able to provide tomorrow’s health care professionals with exceptional educational opportunities in a hands-on environment.
The Learners’ Centre is a thriving teaching facility where learners engage with tools, high fidelity mannequins and state-of-the-art technology in order to practice scenarios that train both medical staff and students for real life medical situations.
