Healthy Women, Babies & Children

Michelle Gordon (Small)

Every year, more than 1,000 babies are welcomed into the world at Soldiers’. 

Sometimes, these moments can be unpredictable. 

Some of our tiniest soldiers require a little extra help adjusting to life outside of the womb and spend time in our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. Others begin their journey before birth, when expectant mothers are referred to our Perinatal Care Unit.

No matter the circumstance, Soldiers’ aims to be the most prepared to help new mothers and babies through their journeys.

Our Hospital is home to the Regional Women and Children Program, which supports mothers, newborns, children and youth all within Simcoe County, Muskoka, Parry Sound, Haliburton and surrounding areas. 

The demand for new equipment and technology is high and we need to be able to continue providing the best possible care to our most vulnerable sector.

Your investment has equipped our Hospital with the necessary advancements to better assist our newest Soldiers. It has revolutionized the daunting treatments and offers a safe space for our paediatric friends.

Our goal is to create a comfortable environment where there are fewer tears and bigger smiles.

Our current equipment is outdated, but with your investment, high-risk newborns will have a stronger chance of recovery with resuscitation units for immediate and potentially life-saving intervention.

With your support and generous donations, our Hospital can invest in the future of our tight-knit community.
