The Impact of Your Support

Thanks to the generosity of donors, St. Mary’s General Hospital is able to ensure patients have access to the highest quality of care close to home.


Funds donated to St. Mary’s General Hospital Foundation are directed to purchase vital medical equipment, which is not covered by Ontario Ministry of Health funding.

Your investment makes it possible for St. Mary’s staff and physicians to deliver positive outcomes for patients by ensuring the most effective care is available when you need it.
