    On June 17, 2017 (rain date June 18) the Northside/Harbourview Hospital Foundation will host our 3rd Annual Cape Breton Motor Madness, promoted as an “anything with a motor” car show for all ages. We target car, bike, dragster, mud trucks, tuners, antique and custom vehicle owners to come and display their pride and joy for families to come and view them. In 2016 we received 2,500 visitors to the Emera Centre Northside who participated in viewing the vehicles, face painting, photo opportunities, enjoying BBQ’d foods, music and entertainment and supporting our vendors by buying their products on display. The objective of the event is to host a family orientated fun day that is economical for families to attend and promote both Northside General Hospital and Harbourview facility while raising funds to purchase priority medical equipment for both hospitals....

Gordon Carmichael

Gordon’s Story

I am an eighty-eight year old man with a number of health issues. I enjoy the Seniors Daycare Program because it gives me a reason to get up and get dressed. I wait for the taxi to take me to the Harbourview Hospital where I meet friends and when I arrive I am offered breakfast. I also like the exercise programs that loosen up my muscles. I learn exercises that can use at home. By going to the seniors program my caregiver David, and my wife too, have some time to shop, to go to meetings or just relax. Read more →
