Algoma Steel Group (ASTL) has donated C$1 million to the Sault Area Hospital Foundation (SAHF).

The donation is in support of Sault Area Hospital’s Residential Withdrawal Management Facility.

Construction and retrofitting of the property at 145 Old Garden River Road began in May.

When completed, the new facility will have 20 residential withdrawal management beds and safe beds in a completely renovated space.

The donation from Algoma Steel will help SAH realize the full vision for the space, supplementing the funding provided by the Ministry of Health.

The Algoma funds are channelled toward finishing exterior areas, creating safe and beautiful outdoor courtyard spaces for clients, providing outdoor furniture and fixtures, and completing an accessible, covered staff entrance; enhancements that would not have otherwise been possible.

The courtyards, in particular, will provide a culturally inclusive space that is reflective of surrounding geographies and respectful of individual expression; a spot where families can visit with residents, along with a venue for group therapy and a possible therapeutic gardening program in the summer months and a safe and secure place for clients to step outside, all year round.

“Our team at Algoma is proud to support the Sault Area Hospital in their construction of a Residential Withdrawal Management Facility, which will make a difference in the lives of many residents in our community,” said Michael Garcia, President and CEO of Algoma.

“On behalf of the Sault Area Hospital, our patients, and our health care workers, I extend our sincere gratitude and appreciation to Algoma Steel for their generous donation of $1 million to support and enhance care for individuals accessing care at our new Residential Withdrawal Management facility,” said Ila Watson, President & CEO, of Sault Area Hospital.

“This gift will ensure those receiving care at the new facility are able to do so in culturally inclusive and welcoming spaces specifically designed to support patient-centred care,” she added.

Algoma Steel Group Inc. is a fully integrated producer of hot and cold rolled steel products based in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario.

Algoma Steel Group Inc. was up 1.233 per cent, trading at $12.32 at 12:32 PM ET.
