Local family pledges $50,000 towards SMH redevelopment

Stevenson Memorial Hospital (SMH) received a pledge of $50,000 towards the SMH Foundation (SMHF)
from Bill and Kim Wray who are long-time supporters of SMH.

“We are both so pleased to be able to support our hospital and community in such a meaningful way,
by assisting Stevenson to turn their transformative vision of a revitalized hospital into a
reality,” Bill and Kim Wray remarked. “In our personal and professional lives as local business
owners and Alliston residents, we understand that having access to vital healthcare services in our
own community can make the difference. During this holiday season, we are grateful to be able to
support our community by helping to make our local hospital prosper.”

To date, over $20 million has been raised towards the Because of you, we can Capital Campaign,
bringing the campaign to nearly 50 per cent of its $43 million goal. The largest campaign in the
history of the SMHF, funds are being raised in support of the hospital’s redevelopment project,
Health Information System and annual equipment needs. The hospital relies on the support of the
community for enhancements to infrastructure, equipment and technology as the government does not
provide annual funding for these critical needs.

“On behalf of the SMHF, we are inspired by Bill and Kim’s generous gift towards the campaign and
believe it will inspire others to give as well,” says Tanya Wall, Executive Director, SMHF. “A
pledge to donate over time is just as valuable as a one-time donation and may be a more feasible
option for many community members. It’s all about the commitment to our cause and we thank Bill and
Kim Wray for their ongoing commitment to supporting the needs of our Hospital.”

The hospital’s redevelopment project includes a revitalized Emergency Department, doubling the
square footage of the hospital and tripling the amount of parking space. Refreshed outpatient
rooms, birthing suites and Laboratory space is also included in the plans.
