Support from our donors has helped us meet many milestones. Over the years, more than $30 million in donor funds have helped change lives at Guelph General Hospital through the purchase of priority pieces of equipment and renovations.
Listed below are some of our larger campaigns:
MRI & More was a successful $6-million campaign that helped make possible three important projects:
- Bringing an MRI scanner to Guelph;
- Improving care in our Emergency Department by building and equipping a special Emergency Mental Health Unit and a dedicated area to help us see more patients more quickly;
- Purchasing highly specialized equipment to support life-and-limb saving vascular surgery.
Launched in 2008, the campaign was a success thanks to the overwhelming generosity of our community. More than 5,200 donations were made. Click here to see our donor wall which recognizes those whose gifts were $5,000 or more.
Partners for Better Health was an $11 million capital campaign in support of Guelph General Hospital and and St. Joseph’s Health Centre, Guelph. The campaign was launched in 2000 to help bring the best health care to Guelph and area. The goal was exceeded by more than one million dollars in less than two years, thanks to the support of 2,600 donors. Guelph General Hospital’s share of the proceeds, over $6 million, enabled us to purchase equipment for our then newly renovated and constructed Hospital.

Scanning for Guelph Wellington - The dream of a CT scanner for Guelph and Wellington County was realized thanks to tremendous community support for the $1.9 million “Scanning for Guelph Wellington” capital campaign. The campaign was launched in November 1995. The community responded with overwhelming generousity and the campaign was completed just one year later. More than 4,000 donors supported the cause - each and every gift helped fulfill the dream of local CT services - for this we are grateful.
