About Our Campaign
Our record-setting $34 million Together, We Care campaign is The Foundation of Guelph General Hospital’s most urgent community fundraising project ever. Together, with your caring support we will fund three essential projects: expand our strained Emergency Department and create new space to support better mental health and addictions care, invest in new patient care equipment and technology, and upgrade our Special Care Nursery. Learn how your support matters.
“Guelph General Hospital plays a vital role in our community and it is our pleasure to come forward to assist our dedicated health care professionals in continuing to provide excellent care with vital new equipment needed” said John Sleeman, Founder and Chairman of Sleeman Breweries Ltd.
Together, We Care is the largest capital campaign in Guelph General Hospital’s history and is focused on three areas of the hospital with crucial needs. The Foundation of Guelph General Hospital has already raised $27.6 million towards the campaign’s $34-million goal and is now looking to the community at large for the remainder.

When Malachi Brnjas was born with an infection and jaundice, he was admitted to Guelph General’s Special Care Nursery (SCN) for five days of intravenous antibiotics. The SCN is part of the Hospital’s birthing unit where newborn babies may have to spend a little extra time, especially if born prematurely or with complications. Malachi’s mom, Angela, stayed nearby in the Family Care Unit, a four-bed space for moms whose infants are receiving care in the SCN.
We often receive letters from former patients letting us know how much they appreciated the care received while at Guelph General Hospital. These letters usually focus on the incredible team of staff at the Hospital, and the compassion and kindness with which they work. What we know is that behind this team stand our donors, people like you, funding the vital equipment that enables the highest quality care and experience to be provided.
