McDougall Energy gives back to health care in our community

Members of McDougall Energy Sudbury regional team were on hand June 15, 2016 to make a $10,000 donation to Health Sciences North Foundation. As part of the Esso Community Investment Program, McDougall Energy has designated these funds to support Health Sciences North’s (HSN) Medical Learner Centre and Simulation Lab.


“We at McDougall Energy are proud to once again support Health Sciences North Foundation in their continued effort in upgrading their Learner Centre and Simulation Lab,” said Darren McDougall, President of McDougall Energy Inc. “On behalf of our Sudbury Regional team, extended families and our partner, Imperial, we are pleased to help provide clinical staff and students with the facilities they need so that they can continue to deliver quality education and research in Northeastern Ontario.”


The Esso Community Program was created to support initiatives that have a positive impact on the community, as well as reinforce the commitment of Esso-branded retailers and associates to the communities where their customers live. McDougall Energy and Imperial Oil are strong supporters of health care in our community, with donations to Health Sciences North Foundation in the past 3 years totaling $35,000.


HSN’s Medical Learner Centre is a world class hands on medical training facility that hosts the equipment and technology required to teach and train both clinical staff and students who are, or soon will be, on the front line of patient care.


“Thank you so much to McDougall Energy and Imperial Oil for their donation to the HSN Learner Centre,” says Dr. Rob Anderson, Medical Lead, Simulation Lab.  “This new space will help create a cutting edge learning environment for our students, staff and the teams that we work with.  The HSN Simulation Lab is dedicated to helping our health care providers improve the outcomes and experience of patients in our region through improving performance and recruiting leaders. This donation will help us continue to advance our efforts in resuscitation training as well as teaching/learning advanced procedures in almost every aspect of health care!”  


“McDougall Energy and Imperial Oil’s donation to our hospital’s Medical Learner Centre means that northerners will always receive the best care from doctors and nurses who are up-to-date on the most advanced knowledge and techniques,” says Mary Lou Hussak, Executive Director, Health Sciences North Foundation. “It is through donations like these from McDougall Energy and the Esso Community Investment Program that Health Sciences North Foundation is able to provide the best tools for our physicians, staff, and learners.”
