Who We Are

The Ottawa Hospital touches the lives of thousands of people every day and from every corner of eastern Ontario. As one of the largest learning and research hospitals in Canada, The Ottawa Hospital specializes in acute care for adults, and innovative, practice-changing research. It is also the region’s only trauma centre and the hub of cancer care, providing the best care to the sickest patients and to those with the most complex health-care issues.

The Ottawa Hospital Foundation is the fundraising arm of The Ottawa Hospital.  At the Foundation, we work to inspire and enable our community to support improvements in patient care, groundbreaking research, and state-of-the-art equipment at The Ottawa Hospital. We consider ourselves privileged partners with a community that holds the health of its citizens in high importance.

In 2015-2016, The Ottawa Hospital Foundation transferred $17.9 million to The Ottawa Hospital for patient care and research – $11.3 million for research and $6.6 million for patient care. In the last five years, the Foundation has transferred more than $94,187,744 to The Ottawa Hospital. This money was generously donated by individuals and companies in our community.
