Because of You, We Can.
Because of You, We Can.
Babies are born here; doctors, nurses and staff train here; volunteers care here, surgeons operate here and hearts and broken bones are mended here.
Stevenson Memorial Hospital is your community hospital and we’re there for you, when you need us most.
But today, we need YOU.
As a caring donor, we are deeply grateful for your generosity. Yet with every passing day, more and more people from New Tecumseth and the surrounding communities are relying on us for high quality care, close to home. Which is why I hope you will consider making a special gift to help purchase much needed equipment and expand essential services and critical care in our Emergency Department and throughout the hospital.
Originally built in 1964, our Emergency Department was meant to serve 7,000 patients a year and we now care for close to 40,000! That’s approximately 110 patients every day and 6X the volume it was built for. This is pretty incredible, when you consider that we care for as many patients as hospitals in our area that have already been redeveloped and our Emergency Department has one of the fastest wait times in Ontario! Yet despite being one of the busiest Emergency Departments in the region, our current space is old and dated, with little privacy and crowded waiting rooms. It nowhere near reflects the exceptional care available in our hospital and we simply don’t have enough space to keep up with the rapidly growing demands of our community, which has been projected to grow to 100,000 by 2031.
The time for change has come. And it’s NOW.
With your support, we’ll purchase critically needed equipment that will improve lives today and expand essential services and care for tomorrow. So that together we can ensure the very best care, right here at home, for you, your loved ones, neighbours and friends, now and for generations to come.
Your gift today will touch countless patients’ lives.
Whether it’s a young father suffering from chest pains, an 11-year-old boy gasping for breath from an asthma attack, a baby with pneumonia or a grandmother undergoing dialysis three times a week, your giving has the power to save and improve lives.
As always, thank you for your generous support.
As a community hospital, we MUST rely on the generosity of the community that we care for to purchase critically needed equipment and to provide the highest quality of care to each and every patient.
Your giving is the strength behind our care. Any gift you are able to give today — of any size — can and will make a difference, right here at home in our community, to help the hundreds of patients who are counting on us every day.
With sincere thanks,
