Funding Priorities

Why We Raise Funds

Did you know that the government funding Hospitals like St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton receive doesn’t cover the costs of upgrading patient care rooms, funding healthcare research, or purchasing much-needed hospital equipment? That’s why our Foundation works with the community to help raise funds to enable our Hospital to provide the best care possible by funding the purchase of state-of-the-art technology and placing it within care environments that foster hope and healing. Our fundraising priorities are established in consultation with the Hospital’s leadership team and support St. Joe’s mission: to provide exceptional patient care, pursue innovative research, and train the healthcare leaders of tomorrow. Thank you for joining us on our journey to support hope, healing and discovery.
