It's so much more than a redevelopment

There are brighter days ahead for residents of the South Shore.

Health care services delivery methods — and our community’s demographic— have changed dramatically since 1988 when South Shore Regional was built.

It’s time for the heart of health care in our community to make some very healthy changes.

A $115.7 million expansion and renewal is now under way at the Regional.

When complete, the patient and guest experience will be totally transformed. Health care will be delivered in bright, spacious, modern, and efficient facilities with enhanced privacy for patients and guests. The redeveloped facility will expand the footprint of the existing hospital by almost 30%, and will provide bright, modern, functional new spaces that include a new Emergency Department, renewed and enlarged Endoscopy and Day Surgery Units, a new Dialysis Unit and an MRI.
When construction is complete, the health care experience for our patients will be forever transformed. And the surroundings in which our dedicated medical and support staff care for our community will be purpose-built, efficient, modern, spacious, functional and inviting.

In the months ahead, the Foundation will be raising funds through a major capital campaign, to directly support the acquisition of essential medical equipment in the newly redeveloped Hospital. Make sure you're following us on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Instagram as well for the latest updates.

The future of health care in our community is bright. Together we can all be part of the dawning of a new day.
