Your support is providing life-saving care to our family and friends.

Your Dollars at Work
Thanks to the incredible generosity of our donors, we are working together to inspire change and advance local healthcare. We are investing in leading medical devices and facilities in an effort to help reduce wait times and increase capacity.
Surgical Suite Upgrades
With an increase in the number of surgeries required at QCH, the medical equipment used to perform these operations is in high demand and in urgent need of upgrades and replacement.
Donor support will help transform our surgical suites with technology and equipment that will help to reduce wait times (post-pandemic), build capacity, attract the best and brightest surgical talent, and most importantly, improve health outcomes for our patients.
Creating 15 New Bed Bays
With West Ottawa’s only Emergency Department (ED), Queensway Carleton Hospital (QCH) has an immediate need to create more space for patients.
With continued support from our donors, we have transformed a space inside the hospital to create 15 new bed bays, creating a safe and comfortable place for patients to be treated.
Investing in Life-Saving Medical Devices
The medical equipment we need right now is more important than ever before. Investing in upgrades to modern technologies will help us save lives, detect health concerns early, fight disease and provide preventative care.
With the generosity of our donors, QCH Foundation is assisting with the purchase of these devices – to put the latest tools into the hands of the medical experts at QCH.
