Your dollars at work
The Foundation proudly supports Montfort Hospital and shares its values of compassion, respect, engagement and excellence.
It invests the funds raised in purchasing equipment, supporting the Institut de recherche de l’Hôpital Montfort and providing ongoing medical health professional training to ensure they provide the best possible care.
In recent years, the Foundation has purchased state-of-the-art equipment worth several thousands of dollars. (Data sheets on the devices are available if necessary.)
- A digital mammography system
- A sentinel lymph node biopsy system
- Two magnetic resonance imaging devices for the Portobello satellite clinic in Orleans and the Montreal Road campus

Each year, the Foundation invests $400,000 in the Institut de recherche de l'Hôpital Montfort. In this way, it contributes to improving public health and wellbeing. It also encourages training by awarding scholarships and merit awards to students of the University of Ottawa, La Cité collégiale and Collège Boréal.
