A Message from our Leadership
It is an honour to lead such an incredible organization! We often receive comments from patients and visitors about the unique culture that exists at St. Thomas Elgin General Hospital (STEGH). This shines brightly in the compassion and support that we extend to one another, in the special moments we share with patients, and our ability to learn, adapt and persevere through challenging times.
Leadership is a privilege, and it is our pleasure to serve residents in St. Thomas and Elgin County. Our staff and physicians live our shared vision every day – creating health care excellence for our community. They take pride in our hospital and the services we provide, and are committed to delivering outstanding patient experiences and quality care.
STEGH has a proud history and legacy in the community with over 65 years of service. To achieve the best possible health outcomes for our patients, we continually seek innovative ways to deliver services, engage our patients and community and invest in our people, and collaborate with our health care partners.
In addition, we have a renowned Patient Experience Program, and are committed to working alongside our patients to improve the care journey. If, at any time, you wish to discuss your experience or share your ideas, we invite you to speak to a member of your care team or contact our Patient Experience office.
Thank you for supporting and having confidence in STEGH.
