True community builders, John and Jennifer Ruddy, are leaving their mark on our city once again —this time, with a $10-million gift to The Ottawa Hospital’s Campaign to Create Tomorrow. 

With its ambitious $500-million goal, the campaign will help elevate research to unprecedented heights and support the new campus — which will be home to the most technologically advanced hospital in the country. 

“We both grew up in Ottawa and have seen the city grow and evolve. It’s crucial that medical and hospital services grow and evolve along with our nation’s capital. At some point in their lifetime, every resident of our city will benefit from the new hospital. We hope this gift will help make that happen.”

Thank you, John and Jennifer, for your extraordinary generosity and for fostering a thriving community here in Ottawa.
