“People often ask why so many people go to St. Joe’s emergency. It’s because despite our often crowded conditions, we have a reputation for outstanding emergency care that is fast, expert and compassionate.”
Your help is urgently needed
St. Joe’s has one of the busiest emergency departments in Toronto. Last year, our Emergency Department had 100,000 visits, yet it was only built for 60,000 annual visits. That’s an emergency.
That’s why we continue to raise funds to make the facility better match the care. Government funding won’t cover the full cost of modernizing and upgrading the emergency department. We need help from our west-end neighbours to make a new emergency department a reality.
You can help people who need our most urgent care
The modernized Emergency department will provide patients with greater comfort, more privacy and better protection from infection. Plus a new layout will further improve efficiencies so that patients receive even faster care.
Our generous donors have funded dramatic improvements throughout St. Joe’s. For example, the CIBC Just for Kids Clinic, the Bachir Yerex Family Dialysis Centre, and Mental Health Emergency Services Unit were all made possible because of donors.
Now we need your help to improve emergency. Please join with your west-end neighbours to help St. Joe’s keep the promise of meeting the emergency needs of our community.
