A strong community makes a hospital greater, and a great hospital makes a community stronger.
At some point in our lives, each of us relies on the expertise and care we receive at Guelph General Hospital. Whether in moments of joy, worry or pain, our community hospital is always there when we need it.
We’re fortunate because Guelph General is one of Ontario’s best hospitals, with exceptional marks in safety, quality and efficiency. All this is done without compromising patient care, and as a well-run hospital that is supported by our community, we are in the best position to address urgent situations such as the 2020 global pandemic.
Currently overcrowded and under strain, our hospital has critical needs we must address together to continue the best quality of care for our community. Guelph is growing quickly, and our hospital must keep pace with the demands this growth will place on it. At the same time, patients and their families need to know we are using the very best equipment available – and did you know that 100% of the equipment Guelph General Hospital uses for patient care is not funded by tax dollars, and therefore must come from a community donor?
Our record-setting $34 million Together, We Care campaign is The Foundation of Guelph General Hospital’s most urgent community fundraising project ever. It relies on all of us to reach its final goal.
Together, we will fund three essential projects:
- Expand our strained Emergency Department and create new space to support better mental health and addictions care.
- Replace aging equipment and purchase innovative technologies.
- Reimagine and expand our Special Care Nursery to meet the needs of modern families.
