In 1943, the community came together to establish a hospital to meet urgent medical needs and save lives after the tragic death of a child on Southampton beach. Through Saugeen Memorial Hospital Foundation, the community has been a vital hospital partner ever since.
The completion of an ER and Lab expansion in 2019 helped our dedicated staff and physicians cope with increased demand for care, but there’s more to be done.
By 2041, the population of Saugeen Shores will grow to an estimated 22,000 people. We are experiencing an influx of young families, but our senior population is also on the rise. A large percentage of the population will soon be 65+ requiring enhanced healthcare.
From our first breath to our last – and every one in between – 150 staff and physicians at Southampton hospital are here for us, when we need them. You can be there for them too! Please donate to equip them with the best tools to provide state-of-the-art care.
Southampton Hospital is part of Brightshores Health System, with 6 hospitals delivering excellent patient care to residents and visitors across the region.
