Leading edge care by your side

Our main priority at Southlake Foundation is to fund the most urgent priorities at our hospital – from basic equipment like hospital beds and IV poles, to state-of-the-art diagnostic imaging technology. These needs aren’t always predictable, but can affect our ability to deliver the high-quality care our patients expect and deserve.

That’s why a donation to the areas of greatest need is the best way to make the biggest impact with your donation. By supporting Southlake’s priority needs you are giving us the flexibility we need to respond quickly when any tool or basic piece of equipment is in need of replacement, respond to opportunities to be at the forefront of innovation, and make sure that our teams have the tools they need to care for every patient who comes through our doors.

Our hospital depends on you



New and replacement equipment and technology mean our healthcare teams have the right tools to care for our patients when they need us most. The result is faster diagnoses, more innovative and minimally-invasive approaches, better patient monitoring and quicker recovery. This means an improved patient experience for the increasing number of people who rely on Southlake to provide leading edge and compassionate care, close to home.


Our communities deserve leading edge care that’s close to home. This is only possible if we have the equipment and tools to treat them. Southlake relies solely on the generosity of donors to fund critical equipment across every program – from basic needs like beds, IV poles and blanket warmers, to advanced technology that is changing the way we deliver the best possible outcomes for our patients.



Your investment in our Surgical Program will replace end-of-life equipment with the advanced technology our surgical teams need to deliver the best outcomes for our patients. You can keep leading edge surgical care close to home where family and friends can offer support nearby, without the burden of traveling downtown for care.





At Southlake, we pride ourselves on our dedication to providing leading edge care close to home for our patients and their families. But there is still work to do to ensure that the women in our communities are getting the advanced care they need, when they need it most.

Southlake needs $6.3 million to meet women’s health needs, which include new and replacement equipment for advanced cardiac, breast cancer, and gynecological care and treatment.

Vein Harvesting Tower and Trays

Innovative equipment that allows veins to be harvested in a minimally-invasive way for cardiac bypass surgery. This approach means significantly less scarring, faster recovery, less post-operative pain, and reduced risk of infection and need for return visits to the hospital for additional care post-surgery.

This helps speed up pre-operative patient preparation, allowing surgical teams to perform more surgeries in a single day. Ultimately, this means more help for women facing cancer when time is of the essence.


This new equipment allows women to directly control the paddles that position the breast for imaging and manage their own breast compression, which results in improved image quality with less pain and discomfort. By making patients more comfortable and less anxious, they are more likely to return for their next mammogram – a critical factor in successfully detecting and treating breast cancer.

Leading edge care for the men in our communities

At Southlake, our teams are passionate about providing innovative care to everyone who comes through our doors. But, in order to do so, they need the right tools in hand to provide our patients with timely care and the best possible outcomes that they expect and deserve. That’s where you come in.

Our surgical Uroview table and holmium laser have reached “end of service”. Already, challenges with the condition of this equipment can mean unexpected delays in procedures, and prolonged pain and discomfort for our patients. Without replacement, delivery of patient procedures requiring this equipment will cease entirely. Patients with scheduled diagnostic procedures, or who come to our Emergency Department suffering from excruciating kidney stones, would need to go elsewhere for treatment. With your help, we can prevent that from happening.


When you just aren’t feeling right…you want to be close to home.





At Southlake, we pride ourselves on always providing innovative care for the best possible patient outcomes. But to continue providing this level of care, we rely on the generosity of our communities to help make sure our expert cardiac teams are equipped with the tools and technology they need to do their best work. With technology advancing in leaps and bounds, and high patient volumes that are putting wear and tear on existing equipment, repairs, replacements, and upgrades are frequent and ongoing needs.

当你听到“癌症” ......你想离家近。

Southlake is passionate about staying at the leading edge of cancer research and innovation, to continue providing comprehensive, cutting-edge diagnoses, treatment and care close to home, making sure our patients have what’s most important – time.




Our cancer program is in need of critical equipment to ensure the very best in diagnosis and treatment for our patients. Your gift will provide us with the tools we need to treat more patients, and more complex diagnoses, keeping cancer patients close to home when they need it the most.

When you need care fast…you want to be close to home.

The Emergency Department is the front door of our hospital, open 24 hours a day, every day. But the demands for emergency care at Southlake are increasing like never before. Our community is one of the fastest growing areas in Ontario, putting added pressure on our Emergency Department. Your investment is critical to help improve our patients’ experiences.

With your help, our teams can deliver high-quality, timely care because they will always have the equipment they need at their fingertips – from advanced equipment like vital signs monitors to necessities like examination tables and IV poles.

You depend on our Emergency team. Now we need your help. Your support can help ensure our family, friends and neighbours have the best possible emergency experience at Southlake.

When you feel there’s no hope at all…there is, close to home.

Mental illness is an invisible disease, unlike a broken bone, blocked artery or tumour that you can pinpoint in an imaging test. Often people with mental illness are suffering in silence, afraid to reach out. Our passion at Southlake is to keep care close to home for those in their darkest hours.

A Growing Need in our Communities




When recovery is your biggest priority…you need care that’s close to home.


We care for patients so they can get stronger, recover faster and get back home. But we can’t do it alone. Your support puts the right tools and equipment at patient bedsides so they are readily available for our care teams – this way they have more time to focus on the needs of each patient. For example, devices like ceiling lifts make it easier and faster for staff to move patients from a bed to a chair safely – important in minimizing the risk of conditions such as pressure injuries and bed sores.
