Heather Baird (right) accepts a $1,000 cheque for the Almonte General Hospital / Fairview Manor Foundation from Tamra Benjamin, Nordion’s Vice-President Public and Government Relations. Heather received the cheque as part of Nordion’s Employee Giving Program, in which employees nominate organizations/causes in their communities to receive donations. An Almonte resident, Heather nominated the Almonte General Hospital / Fairview Manor Foundation because she is grateful to have the facility in her community and recognizes the importance of maintaining the high quality health services it provides. Located in Ottawa, Nordion is a global health science company that provides market-leading products used for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disease.
