We’re stronger together

Over the past several months we have waded into uncharted territory. The COVID-19 pandemic has changed how we work and how we live. But apart doesn’t have to mean alone. Together, we can help those working around the clock to keep our community safe.


The COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund was created to support research, innovation, and patient care projects designs to combat COVID-19. The support we’ve received has been nothing short of inspirational and has helped us launch more than 50 projects to date.

As the pandemic continues to evolve, our healthcare workers continue to gear up each day, ready to stand alongside our patients during this difficult time. And, our researchers continue to make breakthroughs in the fight against COVID-19.

“During these times of uncertainty, we are grateful to our doctors, nurses, and front-line staff as they continue to work around the clock to provide exceptional care to our patients and our community.” – Tim Kluke, President and CEO, The Ottawa Hospital Foundation

Please follow signage posted onsite and be prepared to be screened on arrival for symptoms, travel history and contact history.

Due to circumstances surrounding COVID-19, our Foundation staff are currently working from home. To connect with us, please email Thank you for your ongoing support of The Ottawa Hospital.
