Clearwater Seafoods, a Nova Scotia-based seafood company, has donated $250,000 to the Health Services Foundation of the South Shore’s Brighter Days capital campaign. The donation will support the redevelopment of South Shore Regional Hospital, specifically its new and expanded Emergency Department.

According to Adian Matchett, Human Resources Manager for Clearwater’s Fleet Operations, the company recognizes its corporate responsibility to participate and support the communities its crew members are part of. With its fleet office based out of Lunenburg and a large number of crew members and employees in the South Shore area, Clearwater Seafoods’ Clearwater Cares program aims to engage with charity and volunteer groups within the community to support the local area to the best of their ability.

Clearwater Seafood’s Nova Scotia operation employs approximately 250 people, who utilize the local hospitals’ services. The company recognizes the importance of supporting healthcare on the South Shore, particularly since their offshore fishermen need a full medical every two years and may require medical treatment for any health issues they may have.

Executive Director of the Health Services Foundation of the South Shore, Arleen Stevens, expressed gratitude for Clearwater Seafoods’ donation and commended the South Shore business community for rallying around the hospital redevelopment. Stevens added that the donation will benefit Clearwater’s employees and their loved ones for years to come.

The Brighter Days Capital Campaign is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to help ensure the residents of Nova Scotia’s South Shore have access to the best available health care facilities. The 48,705 sq. ft. expansion and redevelopment of the hospital is expected to be completed in 2025.
