Telethon Corporate Takeover

We’re planning the best corporate takeover ever.

We need your help on Friday, June 4th to make it a fantastical success!

This isn’t your average corporate takeover.

The Janeway Foundation is excited to announce its Janeway Telethon Corporate Takeover, an initiative designed to rally Newfoundland and Labrador’s business community around the 2021 Janeway Telethon, with the goal of advancing newborn care.

We’re doing this by orchestrating a first-ever, province-wide corporate takeover on June 4th across social media.

How can you participate in the Janeway Telethon Corporate Takeover?

  1. Make a corporate gift to the Janeway to help advance newborn care. Call 709-777-4640 or donate online.
  2. Post our Telethon graphic on your social media channels on June 4th to raise awareness of the 2021 Janeway Telethon. Be sure to add the hashtag #janewaytelethon to your posts and tag your coworkers!

  4. If you have a roadside sign in front of your business and can easily change its message, on June 4, change the message to “Join the Corporate Takeover. Text JANEWAY to 45678 to donate $20 and advance newborn care.” Take a picture of your road-side sign and post it on your company’s social media channels with the hashtag #janewaytelethon.
  5. If you have a digital billboard in-market on June 4 send our billboard artwork to your billboard vendor and ask them to broadcast it all day on June 4. You can download the artwork here.

What’s the goal of the 2021 Telethon?

The Telethon’s 2021 goal is to raise $2.5 million to advance newborn care and to upgrade specialized surgical equipment.

Air Transport System

When needed, the NICU’s transport team is ready to bring premature, sick and medically complex infants to the Janeway. A specialized Air Transport System works as a mobile ICU, so newborns are fully supported throughout the journey.

New Incubators

Designed to provide a safe and specially controlled environment, incubators with continual monitoring are vital in helping our smallest, most vulnerable premature babies and our ill full-term babies survive tough beginnings.

Upgraded Birthing Bed System

The birth of a baby can be one of life’s happiest moments, but it can sometimes be unpredictable. Advancements made in birthing bed technology help make the birthing experience safer for moms and attending staff.

Advanced Birthing Simulator

Birthing simulators mimic labour problems, high-risk delivery scenarios, and many emergencies that arise during birth. Handling these challenges in a simulation means gaining the ability to save more lives in the delivery room.

Advanced Neurosurgery
Navigation System

The intracranial (within the skull) navigation system (StealthStation S8) is used frequently in neurosurgery practice, allowing accurate placement of surgical instruments throughout a procedure. With the StealthStation S8, we can continue to provide the most up-to-date, gold-standard care to the children of Newfoundland and Labrador.

Advanced Neurosurgery Microscope

Neurosurgical microscopes are intended for the illumination and magnification of the surgical area and for the support of visualization in surgical procedures involving the brain and spinal cord.

If you have any questions or if your company is interested in making a corporate donation, call (709) 777-4640, email us, or visit our online donation page.
