Our Time is Now

Inspired by our patients and by our desire to always provide the very best medical care to our communities – because of you – Stevenson Memorial Hospital will soon be transformed. Our all-encompassing vision is to ensure that you will be able to receive health care close to home now, and far into the future. Soon Stevenson will be a revitalized hospital with cutting-edge equipment and comfortable, modern spaces for optimal patient care.

 

As of October 1, 2019, we are embarking on a bold, $43 million campaign to purchase essential equipment, upgrade leading-edge technology, and complete the critical renovations that are essential for this transformative redevelopment. Today, we invite you to join us on this historic journey so that, together, we can revitalize this invaluable community resource – our local hospital.

Because of you, we can

You can contribute to any one of three priority initiatives…

1) Transforming Our Space

TRANSFORMING OUR SPACE

Growing to Serve you Better

 

We began planning for the redevelopment of our Hospital more than a decade ago. Today, we are on the cusp of making Stevenson Memorial Hospital’s transformative vision into a reality.

Our new and revitalized spaces will reflect, as well as support, the exceptional, high-quality health care Stevenson Memorial Hospital consistently provides and offer greater comfort and privacy for you, your family, and the community at large. Once completed, our new two-storey, 100,000 sq. ft. wrap-around addition will more than double Stevenson’s square footage and the expanded hospital parking area will triple parking capacity.

 

Here’s what you can expect to benefit from:

  • A greatly expanded Emergency Department with 25 clinic rooms
  • Preservation of our helipad and a new ambulance bay and garage adjacent to the Emergency Department
  • A total of 47 patient rooms in the Inpatient Care Unit
  • Construction of a new quiet room for Inpatient Care
  • Our Surgical Services Department will more than double in size
  • There will be 10 clinic rooms in Ambulatory Care (and dedicated spaces for consults/procedures)
  • A much larger, newly outfitted Diagnostic Imaging Department
  • A better Birthing Unit with new labour and delivery rooms, reception and family/waiting area
  • Renovations will also be made to many other areas of the Hospital

2) Essential Equipment Purchases

ESSENTIAL EQUIPMENT PURCHASES

Growing to Serve you Better

 

Having the most-up-to-date medical equipment speeds care, allows for quicker diagnoses and shortens wait times. Our equipment needs include vital signs monitors, code carts, birthing beds for Obstetrics, as well as equipment for the Emergency Department, the Operating Rooms and critical software for Information Technology.

 

Other much needed equipment includes:

  • A Fetal Telemetry Monitor to gauge a baby’s heartbeat during labour
  • An Echocardiography Machine which will help us to save more lives
  • And Wireless Infusion Pumps for improved intravenous treatments

3) Health Information System

HEALTH INFORMATION SYSTEM

Growing to Serve you Better

 

Our recent partnership with Markham Stouffville Hospital and Southlake Regional Health Centre to implement a new Health Information System (HIS) at all three hospitals is referred to as Shared Health Information Network Exchange (SHINE).

 

The first of its kind in Ontario, SHINE allows us to participate in the creation of a sophisticated electronic records system that would otherwise be unattainable. Investing in this system will revolutionize health care here at Stevenson.
