Solmar Development Corporation donates $15 million to St. Catharines hospital

Niagara HBA member Solmar Development Corp. made a heartfelt contribution into the Niagara region with a donation of $15 million to the St. Catharines hospital. The large financial gift, which was presented to the hospital by Angela Marotta and Melissa Marotta-Paolicelli, sisters of the family-owned development corporation, will contribute to the enhancement of the hospital’s medical facilities, advancement of research, and the overall improvement of healthcare services in St. Catharines, ON. Thanks to the family’s transformational pledge, the hospital will be aptly named the Niagara Health Marotta Family Hospital.

In an effort to build the Niagara community for generations to come, the donation is one of three philanthropic efforts made by the Marotta family in the last year, including $10 million to the South Niagara Hospital and $1.5 million to Gillian’s Place, one of the first of Ontario’s shelters created for women and children fleeing abuse.
