We’ve outgrown our home.

Let’s build a new Orillia Soldiers’
Memorial Hospital today.

Everything we do today
your health.
your parents.
your children.
the community.

Unless we act today, our hospital which is already over-capacity will face even greater pressure tomorrow. We need to start building a larger, modern hospital to meet the needs of our rapidly growing community.

Our team urgently needs it. Our community deserves it.

It all adds up.

Operating beyond physical capacity


Amount of Emergency Department visits from outside of our area, increasing wait times by 25% in the last 10 years.


Capacity that we are operating at. For two years in a row, OSMH has had the highest occupancy rate of all medium and large-sized hospitals in Ontario.


We have the oldest hospital infrastructure in the region, with parts of our hospital aging 101 years old.


By 2035, we will need 102 additional beds to serve our community.


Our population has grown twice as fast as the rest of Ontario over the past five years. It’s expected to keep climbing by nearly 45% over the next 25 years.


Increase in the number of births OSMH has seen annually from 2011 to 2021.

We need to start today so we can
serve a better tomorrow.

We can’t continue to patch and repair our
aging hospital indefinitely.

  • Overcrowding in hallways due to overcapacity

  • bed-with-window-air unit

    Portable air handling units do not reflect modern standards

  • two-ICU-beds

    Overcrowded ICU rooms

  • Foundation of building
    falling apart

  • raining-in-hospital

    Flooding in MRI suite and NICU unit

We can’t continue to grow without
the hospital infrastructure our
community deserves.

Help us build a new Orillia
Soldiers’ Memorial Hospital.

Ontario’s Health Minister.
