The Great Expansion

The Great Expansion of St. Thomas Elgin General is the single largest investment in our award-winning Hospital since it was built six decades ago. On the northwest corner of our current location we are building a three story tower to house a new Emergency Department, Surgical Suites, Medical Device Reprocessing Department, as well as a permanent home for our Mental Health and Addiction Services.

 The Great Expansion will …

  • Help us deliver the healthcare that our families and friends deserve during each visit, at every stage of life, and as close to home as possible
  • Empower us to continue to attract top notch medical professionals like the ones already delivering our community’s healthcare
  • Equip our expanded Hospital with the advanced medical equipment and design innovation of 21st Century care



  • Patient Care Excellence
  • An environment designed to reduce stress and increase comfort & privacy
  • Improved safety and infection control
  • More natural light and better signs to get around
  • Lower operating costs
  • Reduced wait times
  • A design that anticipates the future health care needs of our community
