Our club was thrilled to host Meaghan Stovel McKnight, VP Community Partnerships and COO, Credit Valley Hospital Foundation.  Meaghan is a Rotary Camp Enterprise Graduate, and what a great ambassador she is for our business camp!
The Credit Valley Hospital is recognized as a leader in its delivery of quality, family-centred health care. Our community is passionate about the hospital it helped to build and proud of its accomplishments.  While our community continues to grow so do the needs of our Hospital.  Meaghan shared the Hospital Phase III expansion plans with our club, namely; 

  • Emergency;
  • CVH is a provincial leader in terms of ER wait times despite the fact that the emergency room was built to treat 55,000 patients a year and last year served 90,000 patients! The ER deparment will be adding 10,000 sq ft during Phase III of the CVH Expansion project.
  • Expanded clinical support services, such as diagnostic imaging to keep up with demand
  • More efficient flow of patients, enhanced quality of care and increased personal privacy and dignity for patients
  • Critical Care;
  • The creation of a state-of-the-art unit which will expand from 16 to 24 beds
  • Surgical;
  • Five new state-of-the-art operating rooms
  • Expanded recovery areas for both inpatient surgery and day surgery
  • Robotic surgery for cancer care

All areas will be expanded to accomodate a greater number of patients.   The hospital will expand to 1,000,000 sq ft to serve 712,000 patients a year with 4700 staff members.  The Credit Valley Hospital Foundation has merged with the Trillium Hospital Foundation and created a new name; the Trillium Health Partners. 

Meaghan also let our club know that we have contributed more than $43,000 to CVH over the course of our assoication.  We expect to continue to support this amazing Hospital and the essential services they provide to our community.  Thank you Meaghan!
