In 1928, with support from T.P. Loblaw, F.K. Morrow, and other prominent leaders from the area, the first Stevenson Memorial Hospital was born. Years later in 1964, due to the expanding population and increasing health care needs, our hospital was rebuilt. At that time, less than 10,000 people relied on our hospital for care.
Now, over fifty years later, Stevenson is providing care for a community of over 73,000 people and our population is expected to rise to over 100,000 by 2031.
Stevenson needs financial support to expand and revitalize their facility and continually update technology and replace critical equipment. Our Foundation is dedicated to raising the funds necessary to meet these needs.
Together, we have a strong vision for the future of Stevenson Memorial Hospital, centered on a revitalized hospital, state-of-the-art equipment, and comfortable, modern patient spaces. But we need the support of our entire community and leaders like you to make this amazing transformation a reality.
Launched in April 2017, the Transforming Stevenson Campaign has received significant support from the Honda Canada Foundation, pledging $4 million; the Nottawasaga Foundation, pledging $1 million and the County of Simcoe, most recently pledging $10 million towards redevelopment of the hospital.
“Stevenson Memorial Hospital is an excellent hospital with amazing staff! My husband and I wish to extend a sincere “Thank You” to Stevenson Memorial Hospital for the wonderful service we have received here throughout these many years. The hospital has been a vital and valuable part of our growing community. We wish you continuing success in these upcoming years.”
Gratefully, Robin and Blanche Burne
Stevenson Memorial Hospital has formed a partnership with Markham Stouffville Hospital and Southlake Regional Health Centre to implement a new Health Information System (HIS) at all three hospital sites.
The first of its kind in Ontario, the partnership is referred to as Shared Health Information Network Exchange (SHINE) and it allows Stevenson to participate in the creation of a sophisticated electronic records system that would otherwise be unattainable.
The need to implement a new HIS in our hospital is vitally necessary because our old electronic health system will soon become decommissioned and further updates are no longer being supported by the manufacturer, making the implementation of a new HIS system in our hospital one of our most urgent priority needs.
Bringing HIS to our hospital will transform the way that Stevenson delivers patient care, giving medical professionals improved access to patient medical data in real time, while supporting faster diagnosis and treatment.
With your generosity, Stevenson is implementing this remarkable system in our hospital, which will then be upgraded and customized to meet the specific needs of our hospital and its patients. Investing in this system will revolutionize health care at Stevenson.
