The NEO Kids Foundation says it’s received a half-a-million dollar donation to go towards its future child healthcare centre. HSN’s Volunteer Association made the donation specifically to help with the project. HSN says the healthcare centre’s main goal will be to provide paediatric care, diagnosis, clinics, and other healthcare services to residents in the Northeast.

The centre will be built just outside of Sudbury, providing treatment and services closer to home for northern families, saving them from commuting to larger city centres like Toronto. The facility is slated to have a Ronald McDonald House for visiting families, a Child Advocacy Centre, a pharmacy and other healthcare services for children.
