About us

Who We Are

The Ottawa Hospital touches the lives of thousands of people every day and from every corner of eastern Ontario, Western Quebec, and even Nunavut. The Ottawa Hospital’s three campuses (Civic, General, and Riverside) are home to the region’s only trauma centre and are the hub of cancer care, providing the best care to the sickest patients and to those with the most complex health-care issues. 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 that is recognized globally for its contribution to health care.

At The Ottawa Hospital Foundation, we work to inspire and enable our community to support improvements in patient care, ground-breaking 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 2017-2018, The Ottawa Hospital Foundation transferred over $17.6 million to The Ottawa Hospital for patient care and research – over $12 million for research and over $5.5 million for patient care. Over the last five years (2013/14 thru to 2017/18) the Foundation has transferred $95,938,000 to The Ottawa Hospital. These funds were generously donated by individuals and companies in our community.
