About Us

Stevenson Memorial Hospital (Stevenson) is located in the community of Alliston, in the Town of New Tecumseth, Ontario. Situated one hour north of downtown Toronto, this fully accredited hospital is in the heart of central Ontario. Stevenson serves a catchment area that includes Adjala-Tosorontio, Canadian Forces Base Borden, Essa, Innisfil and New Tecumseth.

Stevenson dates back to 1928, when donations from T.P. Loblaw, of the famed Loblaws grocery chain, conceived the idea of a hospital as a tribute to his grandparents, William and Elizabeth Stevenson.

A lot has changed since then. Today the hospital, in partnership with Southlake Regional Health Centre in Newmarket, Ontario, is in a period of growth and opportunity. Stevenson offers a wide scope of medical and surgical services. It is on the brink of further expanding its services and has re-introduced high-quality Level 1 maternity care.

Here are some of our recent achievements:

  • The Hospital has been on the leading edge with recent equipment purchases. When community support provided five new dialysis machines and a water treatment plant, the technology was state of the art with only five other such treatment plants in existence in Canada.
  • High tech ultrasound units, donated to the hospital in 2006, were the first of their kind in the region.
  • Stevenson became a part of the most advanced Picture Archiving and Communications systems in Canada. Commonly referred to as PACS, the system allows for the transmission of digital diagnostic images to physicians and specialists anywhere in Canada, or around the globe, if necessary. The technology is environmentally friendly and addresses time saving and storage issues, all of which make the hospital more efficient.
  • The Hospital's first CT Scanner was purchased and began testing patients in October 2009. It is housed in a new addition with it's own waiting area.

Every step forward that we take is intended to improve upon the much-needed health care services we provide. However, the ultimate value of our progress is measured in the peace-of-mind that we can give to every single member of our community that we will be here for them when they need us.
