Gabriel Pizza invests $100,000 in the future of healthcare

Ottawa, November 8, 2021 – Gabriel Pizza further strengthens its partnership with Hôpital Montfort today through a long-term commitment to support the Orléans Health Hub (OHH) and Montfort’s employee recognition program. This major Gabriel Pizza contribution will help our community have access to integrated programs, close to home and under one roof. Additionally, in recognition for their efforts and hard work, Gabriel Pizza is dedicated to rolling the dough to feed the entire staff during Montfort’s Staff Appreciation Day.

For more than 40 years, Gabriel Pizza is a cornerstone of our community and is well-known for giving back, supporting numerous causes such as health, education, arts, and sports. Among other generous donations, Montfort staff were treated on numerous occasions to delicious pizza during the COVID-19 crisis and National Nursing Week.

“Gabriel Pizza grew up in this very community. Gabriel Pizza is deeply rooted in Orléans,” says George Hanna, President of Gabriel Pizza. “The Orléans Health Hub is an important facility to the on-going health care of area residents. It is only natural that we would support such a worthy initiative.”

This important financial support allows Montfort and its partners to innovate and provide exemplary care and services to the people of Ottawa. From newborns to seniors, clients will have access to integrated programs close to home, focused on their needs, and offered in both official languages.

"We are very excited to join forces with Gabriel Pizza. This contribution brings us closer to reaching our $12 million campaign goal towards this unique and innovation model of healthcare and it’s a great way to express our thanks to the hospital’s devoted staff, it’s a win-win situation!" says Marc Villeneuve, President and CEO of the Montfort Foundation.

The Orléans Health Hub is a Montfort led partnership with Bruyère, Youth Services Bureau of Ottawa, Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario, Eastern Ottawa Resource Centre, ParaMed, Ottawa Public Health, Geriatric Psychiatry Community Services of Ottawa and Home and Community Care Support Services Champlain.
