About St. Joseph's Health Care Foundation of London:

Founded in 2004, St. Joseph’s Health Care Foundation of London (SJHCF) raises funds and invests in research, patient care, and education, that would not otherwise be possible, at St. Joseph’s Hospital. Its overarching goal is to improve the care people receive St. Joseph’s Hospital through funding teaching and research. SJHCF reports that more than 50% of Canadians live with a chronic disease and its catchment area, Southwestern Ontario, has some of the highest rates in the province. In F2018, SJHCF raised $14.0 million of which it granted $4.3m to St. Joseph’s Hospital, of which 70% went to research, 29% to patient care and 1% to education.  

St. Joseph’s Health Care Foundation of London provides funds to advance research in order to provide better care and treatments for hospital patients. In F2018, SJHCF granted $797,205 to the Clinical Research and Chronic Disease Centre. The Clinical Research and Chronic Disease Centre brings researchers across many disciplines together in new facility to focus on life-long diseases, improving the way clinicians help to prevent, diagnose, treat and help people to manage them. In addition, SJHCF granted $90,121 to the surgical Mechatronics Lab. The Surgical Mechatronics Laboratory develops minimally invasive upper arm surgical interventions that support surgical skill development, enhance patient recovery and seek to reduce further surgeries. 

SJHCF grants money to St. Joseph’s to provide quality patient care. In F2018, SJHCF granted $103,802 for a resident bus for Mount Hope Centre for Long Term Care.
