For more than 50 years, St. Joseph’s Healthcare Foundation has partnered with grateful patients and our community of donors and friends to raise funds that enable our Hospital to deliver the very best care to all those in need while pursuing healthcare research to advance the future of care. It is with this legacy in mind that we embark on our next five-year strategic plan. We will leverage the Building, Leading, Learning and Caring pillars of St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton’s strategic plan, integrate the innovative work of the Research Institute of St. Joe’s Hamilton, and remain true to the values of our Founders, the Sisters of St. Joseph of Hamilton. Through our relationship with St. Joseph’s Health System, we will strive to bridge the gaps in healthcare funding for our Hospital, foster innovation in care and research, and impart how every donation to St. Joseph’s Healthcare Foundation inspires hope, supports healing, and fosters new discoveries at our Hospital.
