BMO Contributes First Installment Toward Their $430,000 Redevelopment Commitment to the Stevenson Memorial Hospital
[New Tecumseth, ON – Mar 28, 2022] – BMO Financial Group presented their first $86,000 installment of a $430,000 donation made to the Stevenson Memorial Hospital Foundation (SMHF) towards the redevelopment of Stevenson Memorial Hospital (SMH).
BMO Financial Group’s $430,000 donation over 5 years was first announced on October 6, 2021.
This kind of support is critical as the increasing demands on SMH continue to grow due to expanding populations, as well as the additional needs of the pandemic, putting immense pressure on this essential community resource.
“BMO has been an advocate for Stevenson for many years having contributed to the hospital’s urgent needs in the past. Their unparalleled support of the Because of you, we can Campaign, has helped move the redevelopment forward,” says Mary Thomas, CEO, SMHF. “It is because of loyal donors like BMO that our community will benefit from exceptional health care close to home. We are very grateful for their impactful gift.”
“We recognize the importance of the Stevenson Memorial Hospital to the Simcoe region and its residents,” said Wendy Cooke, Regional Vice-President, Vaughn, York and Simcoe, BMO Bank of Montreal. “BMO is driven by our Purpose to Boldly Grow the Good in business and life which extends to our communities and in this case, building a strong health-care facility to foster the well-being of our community members.”
The Because of you, we can Campaign is the largest campaign in SMHF’s history, supporting the redevelopment of Stevenson Memorial Hospital. The hospital’s redevelopment plan includes a revitalized Emergency Department, doubling the square footage of the hospital and tripling the amount of parking space. Refreshed outpatient rooms, birthing suites and laboratory space are also included in the plans. With an Emergency Department built to manage 7,000 visits a year that currently manages close to 40,000 per year, along with a growing population in south Simcoe and surrounding communities, this redevelopment is needed today and for future generations.
