Your heart’s in the right place – the case for Cardiac Care at St. Mary’s.
The St. Mary’s Regional Cardiac Care Centre is a provincial and national leader in providing innovative, outcome-driven cardiac care – a feat that puts us in the top 20% of heart centres across North America.
But that’s not what is important to us. Keeping our promise to our patients is.
You see, a promise is a powerful thing – for most of us, a promise is an unbreakable bond between what we say and what we do. A kept promise is a defining characteristic of a person we admire and something we hold up as an example of what is right and just. A promise to help. A promise to love. A promise to heal. Each of these has the potential to change the world.
At St. Mary’s, we make a promise every day and it’s a simple one. We promise to do everything we can so that our patients can live their lives to the fullest; to do our best to ensure that life’s most precious moments – a birth, an anniversary, a graduation, or just a walk in the park with someone you love – are there to be had. When it comes down to the most basic reason we exist, it is to keep that promise.
If there is one thing that defines the Cardiac Centre at St. Mary’s, it is this ideal. For the past ten years, while we have quietly developed one of Canada’s finest heart centres, we have literally saved the lives of thousands of people
For the past ten years, while we have quietly developed one of Canada’s finest heart centres, we have literally saved the lives of thousands of people. All with help from donors like you.
Today, we stand at the edge of renewal and we need your help. After ten years, we are growing our program and the services we provide to our patients. At the same time, technology has allowed for incredible advances in the detection and treatment of heart disease; technology that ensures our patients have access to the best cardiac care anywhere.
To expand our work and to give our patients the best chance to beat heart disease, we require community investment – that’s where our loyal donors come in. Donors built St. Mary’s in 1924, expanded it in 1961 and again in 2007. Today, I would be honoured if you could help us with the next chapter in the long and storied history of this great hospital and the strides we take to keep our promises.
From our family to yours, I wish you good health and happiness.
