Who We Are

Inspiring Excellence. Healthier Together.

It's the St. Mary’s way: compassionate care for our patients and each other, together.

Located in the heart of Kitchener, St. Mary’s is home to the Regional Cardiac Centre, Regional Chest Program and Regional Eye Program. As leaders in our field recognized globally for world-class, innovative healthcare, our vision of “Inspiring Excellence. Healthier Together” is not just about our approach to patient-centred care, it’s also about our commitment to our staff.

For nearly a century, St. Mary’s has provided compassionate care to our community serving over 1,000,000 residents locally and beyond each year. We are the second-largest acute care hospital in the St. Joseph’s Health System with a team of over 2,000 staff, physicians and volunteers dedicated to ensuring patients receive the highest-quality care possible.

St. Mary’s commitment to quality and excellence is demonstrated further through our achievement of Exemplary Standing with Accreditation Canada—the highest standard of achievement possible—for meeting or exceeding standards of delivery safe, high-quality care.

St. Mary’s is proud to be recognized for the second year in a row as one of Forbes Canada's Best Employers 2023 and Diamond hospital in Waterloo Region in the Record's Reader Choice Awards demonstrating our Commitment to our staff and our patients.
