The Morningview Foundation Donates $300,000 To Stevenson Memorial Hospital Foundation to Help Replace the Reverse Osmosis System

[New Tecumseth, ON – May 21, 2024]—The Stevenson Memorial Hospital Foundation (SMHF) is pleased to share the news of a $300,000 donation from The Morningview Foundation. This gift will help replace the existing Reverse Osmosis System, maintaining the highest standard of care for kidney dialysis patients at Stevenson Memorial Hospital. 

The Reverse Osmosis System purifies the water used in dialysis machines, ensuring the removal of impurities and contaminants. Providing a reliable source of purified water enhances the safety and effectiveness of dialysis treatments, reducing the risk of complications and infections. Stevenson Memorial Hospital is proud to be able to provide dialysis treatments in our community, with over 3,600 given in 2022-2023.

The Morningview Foundation’s generous donation helps to ensure that dialysis treatments remain accessible to those in our community affected by kidney disease.   

“Stevenson Memorial Hospital Foundation extends our greatest appreciation to The Morningview Foundation for their significant gift,” expressed Melody McLean, Director of Development and Campaign Manager, SMHF. “They are truly making a difference by helping to provide critical health care technology in our community.”

The Foundation’s mission is to raise funds for essential equipment, contributing to the delivery of quality health care within the community. The Provincial government does not allocate funds for equipment, technology, or furniture. Therefore, it is through initiatives like the Because of you, we can Campaign that we gather resources to fulfill Stevenson Memorial Hospital’s annual equipment requirements.

The Because of you, we can Campaign is the largest campaign in SMHF’s history. Donations received help purchase essential equipment, upgrade technology, and complete critical renovations essential to the transformation and redevelopment of Stevenson Memorial Hospital.  The hospital’s redevelopment plan includes a new Emergency Department that will triple in size. 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.
