About St. Mary’s General Hospital Foundation
Located in the heart of Kitchener, St. Mary’s General Hospital has served the community since 1924. St. Mary’s is a special place where inspiring acts and life-changing events happen every day. Over 2,000 staff, physicians, and volunteers provide outstanding, compassionate care across its clinical focus areas: Cardiac Care, Respiratory Care, Day Surgery, General Medicine, 24/7 Emergency Care.
St. Mary’s Regional Cardiac Care Centre provides advanced services to more than 1.2 million, residing across Waterloo, Wellington, Dufferin, Grey, Bruce, Huron, Perth, Oxford, Brant, Norfolk, and Haldimand counties.
The Foundation’s role is to inspire the community to invest in the hospital’s mission of hope and healing to ensure St. Mary’s is prepared and equipped to provide the best possible care when it’s needed.
The Ontario government does not provide funding for the purchase of new or replacement medical equipment. It’s only thanks to the financial contributions of generous donors that St. Mary’s can purchase the innovative equipment and essential tools staff depend upon daily. Inspired by the selflessness of St. Mary’s donors and medical staff, the Foundation team strives to deliver maximum financial impact for both the hospital and its supporters.
