Giving Back While Responding To Urgent Health Care Needs

#TeamPlanGroup has been working around the clock at Joseph Brant Hospital in Burlington, Ontario to install power and generator back-up power, lighting and data communications cabling for a 93-bed temporary facility.


IBEW electricians support Joseph Brant Hospital Foundation

Providing electrical services in a medical setting can be complex and demanding at the best of times. For IBEW electricians that challenge was intensified as they worked under extraordinary circumstances to help meet Joseph Brant Hospital’s (JBH’s) urgent need for expansion due to the pandemic. 


But for IBEW Local 105, where the electricians are members, the job didn’t finish there. With a history of giving back to the community, the Local decided it was important to step up their efforts.


“We are very proud to donate $15,000 to help the Joseph Brant Hospital Foundation deal with emerging needs created by Covid-19 as well as support staff working at the hospital,” said Lorne Newick, Business Manager of Local 105.
