Stevenson Memorial Hospital Foundation Celebrates
Million Dollar Matching Gift from The Morningview Foundation

[New Tecumseth, ON – March 30, 2022] – The Stevenson Memorial Hospital Foundation (SMHF) is proud to announce the launch of the Thanks A MILLION!!! match campaign, thanks to a transformational gift from The Morningview Foundation.  From April 1 – Sep 30, new donations to the Because of you, we can Campaign will be matched by The Morningview Foundation dollar-for-dollar up to one million dollars. 

Funds raised for the Because of you, we can Campaign support the hospital redevelopment, as well as, information technology and critical equipment needs. 

The Morningview Foundation believes our growing community needs a modernized healthcare facility to meet our needs, and with a redeveloped hospital comes the need to purchase equipment. “We hope this gift match inspires our community to rise to the occasion and help the foundation reach their $43 million goal.  We are all invested in the success of a revitalized hospital and we are proud to be a part of this historic moment for South Simcoe.”

“When I first learned of this remarkable gift, I was overwhelmed with gratitude. It is an honour that The Morningview Foundation chose to make this generous commitment” says Mary Thomas, CEO, SMHF.  “A donation of this magnitude will have a tremendous impact on the redevelopment of Stevenson and ultimately advancing patient care for our community.  A successful matching gift campaign like this will bring us two million dollars closer to our goal, which is incredibly exciting.  We are absolutely moved by the Morningview Foundations’ generosity.”

“This is an outstanding commitment from The Morningview Foundation towards the Capital Campaign and the redevelopment of our hospital,” says Jody Levac, President and CEO, SMH. “This is the kind of support that empowers others to give and will help us reach our goal. Because of local businesses, individuals and families and organizations like The Morningview Foundation, I am confident that we will get there and build a revitalized hospital that this community needs and deserves.”

The Because of you, we can Campaign is the largest campaign in the 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.
