In Ontario, many of us have grown up with the belief that healthcare is “free” and the government provides all the funding that Hospitals need to care for our community. But the operating dollars St. Joe’s is fortunate to receive from the province aren’t always enough to cover the costs of renovating patient care areas, purchasing the latest medical equipment or funding the research studies that may lead to tomorrow’s cures. That’s why St. Joseph’s Healthcare Foundation works with our generous community to raise funds that can take the care our Hospital provides from exceptional to extraordinary.

St. Joe's was there for me when I found out my kidneys were failing. With the support of Dr. To and my amazing care team, I've had three healthy pregnancies while on dialysis. If you ask me, my daughters are nothing short of a miracle!
