Last fall, St. Thomas Elgin General Hospital (STEGH) launched a new strategic planning
process that focused on collaboration and engagement. Over 1,000 staff and internal
stakeholders, patients, partners, and members of the community were engaged in the
process and shared ideas and input to help guide the future direction and priorities
The hospital also utilized this opportunity to evolve their core values so that
they resonated with the culture that has been nurtured. STEGH's new values are:
Compassion, Accountability, Respect, Innovation and Collaboration.
The "Our Values" Photo Contest is an opportunity to further engage with staff and
the community. STEGH is challenging residents of St. Thomas and Elgin County to
submit photos that best represent or identify their values. Pick one or submit photos
for all five! Be creative! How are the new values represented in the community?
STEGH is looking for originality, imagination, and relevance!
The Contest is open to all residents of St. Thomas and Elgin County.
Full contest details, rules and an application package is available on STEGH's website:
