"As a physician practicing in a small community, I don't think I can really overstate the importance of having the Hospital Foundation support the efforts we are making to try to care for our patients."

Many challenges face Nova Scotia's public health care system which relies on taxpayer dollars, Brian says. "We don't always have access to everything we'd like — diagnostic equipment, treatment options, whatever.

"We do have a good health care system, but without having the Foundation here in Yarmouth and similar foundations elsewhere in the province and across the country, there'd be a struggle to meet the needs of patients."
