Why: To raise funds in support of the STEGH Great Expansion and Patient Care
The Great Expansion will enable STEGH to keep pace with a dynamic and changing healthcare
system, and provide our community with a local state-of-the-art healthcare facility.
As a Provincial leader in ER wait times, the Great Expansion will only improve an
increasingly high-performing Hospital.
Construction of the new three storey tower is well underway. Located on the northwest
corner of our current location, the new addition will house an Emergency Department,
Surgical Suites, a permanent home for our Mental Health Unit, as well as a Medical
Device Reprocessing Department. In addition to this project, the STEGH Foundation
is also raising money for a new CT Scanner.
On November 17th, 2015 the Hospital, the Foundation, donors, good friends, and neighbours
celebrated ground-breaking for the Great Expansion. Construction is well underway,
and completion of the new addition is expected in 2017. The Foundation is leading
the $16 million capital campaign to help fund the ‘Great Expansion', and with the
kind assistance of quality organizations such as Boston Pizza, has raised more than
$15 million to date.
The community is invited to join with our good corporate citizens in support of
the incredible transformations taking place at STEGH. There are many ways for individuals,
businesses and civic organizations to get involved and the best place to start is
