When you need care, St. Joe’s is the first place you and your west-end neighbours will go. Our teams work around-the-clock to provide the best, timely care for men, women and children – 365 days every year.
Last year, we had 100,000 visits, yet the Emergency Department (ED) was only built for 65,000 visits. That’s an emergency. Government funding won’t cover the full cost of building a new ED – that’s why we’re reaching out to you and our neighbours. We need community support to help completely rebuild and re-configure St. Joseph’s Emergency.

What your gift can do
Your gift today will help build a larger space with more examination rooms, meaning that fewer patients will need to wait in crowded corridors.
A bigger space also means putting Super Track – our proven system to reduce wait times – in the heart of Emergency. Your donation will help renovate this vital space so more people can benefit from faster care.
Our Kids’ Emergency will be renovated too. This space will be designed so children feel reassured and comfortable at a time when they are frightened. Your gift today will help redesign our examination rooms and family spaces so they are child-friendly and private.
With your support
- More examination rooms
- Increased privacy
- Better infection control
- Larger spaces for equipment
- Kid-friendly paediatric emergency area
- Increased capacity for Super Track that gets 90% of patients home in two hours
