We did it! Together, our community raised more than $16 million towards the Great Expansion of the St. Thomas Elgin General Hospital. This project, which opened in stages this past winter, is a tremendous achievement for and by the people of St. Thomas and Elgin County. We are grateful and awed by the donors who played an integral role in bringing this transformative project to life.
Together, we built an entirely new facility and equipped it with the tools of 21st century healthcare. Thank you for believing in our community. Thank you for supporting our staff. Thank you for investing in the healthcare our families and friends deserve.
The Foundation’s mission is to partner with the community to support STEGH in the delivery of an excellent patient care experience. We do this by investing in big infrastructure projects like the Great Expansion. We do this by purchasing state-of-the art medical equipment like the CT scanner, as well as the simple dignities of life like the chairs and coffee maker for our Care by Parent Apartment. We do this by directly investing in the training of frontline staff.
“It’s OUR Hospital” is more than just a slogan. It is the recognition that our shared community plays an integral role in the delivery of an excellent patient care experience. It is the acknowledgement that our Hospital needs our support. It is a commitment to ensuring the healthcare our families and friends deserve is available as close to home as possible.
To every committed volunteer, good corporate citizen, and generous individual who responded to our appeals in support of our Hospital, we offer our humble thanks.
Warmest Regards & Appreciation,
The Great Expansion of the St. Thomas Elgin General Hospital opened its doors to patients in January, 2018. This was the largest fundraising project in our community’s history and a transformational investment in the healthcare available to our families and friends in St. Thomas and Elgin County.
