What is the Brighten Way?
The Brighten Way is a culture of Paying It Forward at the Saint John Regional Hospital. Over 200,00 staff, patients, families, and visitors pay it forward every year.

How Does it Work?
Every time you make a purchase at the hospital Gift Shop, Jewelry Counter, Uniform Shop or Hair Salon, purchase Lifeline Service or use the ATM outside of the Gift Shop, ALL of the proceeds are redirected back into the Saint John Regional Hospital to fund Patient Comfort Programs! Because of you, the Brighten Group has been able to donate over $6M to the Saint John Regional Hospital since 1982!
