About St. Joseph's Health Centre Foundation of Toronto:

St. Joseph's Health Centre Foundation of Toronto (SJHCF), registered in 1984, was created to receive and maintain funds to improve the facilities and services at St. Joseph's Health Centre Toronto.

St. Joseph's Health Centre Toronto, founded in 1921, is a full service acute care community teaching hospital in the Catholic tradition and provides services in southwest Toronto. The hospital’s patient care services include: Children, Emergency, Mental Health, Addictions, Surgery, Orthopedics, and Diagnostic Imaging. In F2017, St. Joseph's Health Centre Foundation of Toronto granted $2.6m to the hospital.

St. Joseph's Health Centre Foundation of Toronto spent 78% of grants on hospital renovations in F2017. In April 2016, the hospital finished its renovation of the children’s floor and clinic, including a play area and converting two examination rooms into four so pediatricians could increase patient visits. The same month, the hospital finished renovating the waiting area for patients having chemotherapy. The hospital created a calming lounge for mental health patients while they stay at the hospital.

Teaching, education, and research were 10% of grants in F2017. In 2017, the hospital trained 2,680 staff, 400 doctors, 600 medical students, and 570 interprofessional practice students.

St. Joseph's Health Centre Foundation of Toronto spent 7% of grants on patient care in F2017. In F2017, the hospital had over 100,000 emergency visits, over 247,000 outpatient care visits, and 3,275 births. It performed over 182,000 imaging procedures.

St. Joseph's Health Centre Foundation of Toronto’s remaining 5% of grants were spent on new technology and equipment. A new interventional suite was built with high imaging resolution imaging technology that allows between 12 and 14 life-saving procedures daily, such as performing biopsies to diagnose cancer, inserting devices to deliver chemotherapy, and stopping bleeding from post-surgical complications.

Results and Impact: The hospital’s new method to quickly assess the needs of emergency care patients led to patients directed faster to the appropriate care, resulting in 55% of patients discharged within two hours.  In SJHCF’s fall 2017 newsletter, it reports that ten new digital chest tube units in the operating room allow patients who require lung surgery to walk around because the chest tubes are portable. The units also have a digital readout that informs patients of any lung air leaks, so doctors can react immediately.

In F2017, administrative costs were 7% of donations and fundraising costs were 34% of donations. For every dollar donated, 59 cents go to the cause, which falls outside of Ci’s reasonable range for overhead spending.
