Welcome to the 2016-2017 Annual Report

Opening Message

Welcome to St. Joseph’s Annual Report to the Community. We hope you are in inspired by the stories of care, recovery, discovery, teaching and resiliency – of our teams, our patients and residents, and their families. 

Everyday across St. Joseph’s Health Care London, staff, physicians, researchers and volunteers strive to earn complete confidence in the care we provide and make a lasting difference in the quest to live fully. We do this through excellence in care, teaching, research, a commitment to partnerships, and by listening to the voices, thoughts and opinions of our patients, residents and families.

The year saw us expanding our reach in many areas – in the care of veterans and those with diabetes, for men facing prostate cancer, and in the support of caregivers. We are breaking new ground in unravelling dementia, suicide prevention, and inspiring excellence in the next generation of care providers, here and overseas.

No longer encumbered by restructuring and construction, St. Joseph’s is forging ahead to achieve our strategic priorities while building upon our legacy, strengths and enduring mission. Our perseverance in responding to the challenges of an always-evolving health care landscape is a hallmark of our organization and has led us to become one of the best and most unique health care organizations in the country, for our patients and those who work within our walls.

Thank you for your interest and support as we strive, always, to strengthen our performance across our programs and services. We will continue to chart new paths and rise to the call to serve all those who come to us in need, guided by the principles of Catholic health care and with the same spirit and devotion that has always driven St. Joseph’s.
