One of the key driving forces behind this success has been a surge in community events, where local businesses, organizations, and individuals came together to rally behind the cause of advancing healthcare in the Algoma District. SAH Foundation is deeply grateful for this outpouring of support, which has proven instrumental in enhancing the quality of care Sault Area Hospital is able to provide.

The 2022-2023 Annual Report highlights several significant milestones that have shaped the landscape of healthcare in Sault Ste. Marie and the wider Algoma region. Among these achievements is the installation of a state-of-the-art MRI machine, valued at $3.2 million. This cutting-edge technology is now a cornerstone of local care, allowing local medical professionals to diagnose and treat patients accurately and efficiently.

The Foundation also provided crucial funding for essential behind-the-scenes equipment, including sterilization tools, laboratory equipment, and software upgrades for the operating rooms. Though out of view for most patients and visitors for the hospital, this equipment is fundamental to providing outstanding care at Sault Area Hospital.

Executive Director of Sault Area Hospital Foundation, Teresa Martone, expressed heartfelt gratitude to all the donors and supporters of the Foundation.

"We are immensely grateful for the unwavering support from our community. It is through the contributions of our generous donors that the Sault Area Hospital can continue to provide outstanding care, close to home. The funds raised have made a tangible difference, ensuring that our healthcare professionals have access to cutting-edge technology and equipment. Together, we are building a healthier future for everyone we serve."

Sault Area Hospital Foundation remains committed to its mission of advancing healthcare excellence in the region, and is determined to build upon the successes of this past year. With the continued support of our community, the Foundation is confident that even greater achievements lie ahead.
