“When my daughter had a fever that wouldn’t break, I knew where to go: around the corner to St. Joe’s.”


“From great paediatric care in the CIBC Just for Kids Clinic, the NICU, to a full Emergency Department with an area dedicated to kids, as well as mental health support for those who are most vulnerable, St. Joe’s has it all.”

Anilisa Sainani Board Member, St. Joseph’s Health Centre Foundation

“We’ve lived in this community for many years and St. Joe’s has been a part of our lives during both happy and difficult times. I will always remember the young doctor in the Intensive Care Unit who stayed with my mom throughout the night like she was a member of his family. St. Joe’s saved her life.”

Anne and Tom

“St. Joe’s has helped me through the most pivotal points in my life. I was saved here, and so were my daughters. St. Joe’s takes care of my family.”


“Recently, I visited St. Joe’s for a mammogram. The new 3-D machine really stood out! The entire process was incredibly smooth and the staff were so warm and professional. Thank you!”


“When my two beautiful daughters were born six weeks early, they had to stay in the Neonatal ICU for four weeks. Leaving them at night was the hardest thing I have ever had to do. But I knew they were in good hands—the nurses cared for my daughters with such compassion, like they were their own.”
