Ribbon Cutting for Sun Life Financial Orthopaedic and Amputee Rehabilitation

Sep 23, 2014

On Thursday, September 25, Providence Healthcare welcomes representatives from Sun Life Financial to celebrate the renaming of the Sun Life Financial Orthopaedic and Amputee Rehabilitation unit.

Last year, Sun Life Financial donated to Providence a transformative gift of $500,000 in support of rehabilitation that helps people get their life back after an amputation due to diabetes. This leadership investment is helping Providence to empower patients, provide self-care education and promote prevention.

One of Sun Life Financial’s philanthropic focuses supports initiatives that promote diabetes prevention and awareness. Almost 40 per cent of Canadians have someone in their lives impacted by the disease. At Providence, 30 percent of patients suffer from diabetes complications.
