The St. Thomas Elgin General Hospital Foundation was founded in 1985 by a group of community leaders determined to make a lasting impact on the healthcare available in St. Thomas and Elgin County.
Since that time, our community has stood shoulder-to-shoulder in support of the St. Thomas Elgin General Hospital.
Our mission is simple: we partner with the community to support STEGH in the delivery of an excellent patient care experience.
Thanks to the generosity of our donors, the Foundation has invested more than $30 million into STEGH during this time.
The Foundation itself delivers a donor-centred philanthropic experience, one that recognizes the diverse giving motivations of individuals, foundations, as well as good corporate citizens.
Indeed, the quality of care that the St. Thomas Elgin General Hospital offers today can at least partly be credited to the philanthropic generosity of donors past. Ultimately, we work with donors to ensure that our families and friends receive the care at STEGH they deserve during each visit, at every stage of life, and as close to home as possible.
The St. Thomas Elgin General Hospital adheres to the Association of Fundraising Professionals Donor Bill of Rights. We are also an accredited member of Imagine Canada.
