Donors are key partners in healthcare

Healthcare is the one thing that touches every one of us. We will all need it at some point, either for ourselves, or for somebody we love. 

Today, our healthcare system is more important than ever. In Canada, the aging population is doubling. Rates continue to rise for people with persistent and lifelong illnesses, including diseases like diabetes, mental illnesses and cancers. Our publically-funded health care system cannot support transformational change and healthcare excellence alone.

Donors are key partners in healthcare by providing access to technology, new treatments and a level of excellence that is offered beyond the limits of operating funding. You can help enhance patient and family care experiences, fuel transformative research initiatives and help us to fund the work of world-class scientists exploring new treatments. Given the pressing health issues we face today, donor support allows us to invest in discoveries and innovations that would otherwise not be possible. 

Donations to St. Joseph’s are separate and distinct from those of the hospital’s operating dollars, and fund needs in our care and research environments that often have limited, or no other source of support.

These funds are stewarded by a separate voluntary Board of Directors comprised of corporate and community  leaders from across our region, who bring their skills and community knowledge to the special work of St. Joseph’s Health Care Foundation.

In the last year, donors provided nearly $5 million to St. Joseph’s to fund a number of critical patient care, teaching and research initiatives—initiatives that would not have otherwise been possible.

With your continued help, we can tackle the debilitating health issues of our time and change the future of care provided here in London.

I invite you to learn more about the difference all donor gifts make to care at St. Joseph’s by reading the 2014-15 Community Stewardship Report and through our many stories on our website.

Thank you for supporting the work of St. Joseph’s.
