Together, we will build security for the future and create flexibility to respond to the region’s changing health care needs.

Creating a Nest Egg. Saving for a rainy day is one of the basics of sound financial management. Whether you're an individual looking out for your family, or a business owner planning for the future, building a savings account is key.

It's no different for Strathroy Middlesex General Hospital (SMGH). SMGH's endowment is a perpetual savings account that is invested and produces a dependable source of income for the hospital. Each year, the Foundation spends interest generated by endowment funds. The hospital uses this money to purchase patient care equipment, to upgrade technology and for ongoing staff education.

Our Vision: Your Health. At SMGH Foundation, our vision is simple: the 10-year plan is to grow the endowment so that the hospital has the flexibility to expand future patient services. Contributions can be made to any of our funds below. For more information about setting up a fund, please contact the Foundation at (519) 246-5906.
