St. Marys Healthcare Foundation have reached their $3 million 'Here For You Today, Building For Tomorrow' capital campaign financial goal.

“This is absolutely outstanding and a testament to the incredible leadership of the Foundation and the wonderful support of our community,” said Andrew Williams, president and CEO of the Huron Perth Healthcare Alliance. 

Funds will go towards rebuilding the east and west wings of St. Marys Memorial Hospital.

Construction on the east wing is ongoing and includes new ducting and electrical throughout the hospital, new headwalls and patient lifts in all patient rooms, barrier-free washrooms, and a new mechanical system for the isolation room.

“I want to thank campaign chair Ken McCutcheon for his leadership throughout this campaign. This has truly been a team effort by all the foundation directors and staff,” said Cindy Bilyea, foundation board chair. 

Continued fundraising efforts will focus on new and upgraded equipment for the hospital, and community healthcare support.
