Queensway Carleton Hospital Foundation’s Women in Philanthropy help transform healthcare for Ottawa and our region through their collective giving to support urgent healthcare needs at QCH.
In 2021, the group raised $54,520 and hosted a virtual meeting to vote on how the funds would be allocated. After hearing about the importance of the Electronic Vital Signs Monitors to patient care, the members voted to purchase seven of the devices for the QCH Emergency Department.
This essential piece of equipment monitors and records a patient’s blood pressure, pulse, temperature and oxygen saturation levels and then the information is uploaded directly to the patient’s electronic medical chart so the healthcare team can access and review the results in real-time.

We are pleased to welcome new members to our Women in Philanthropy group. To join, you are asked to confirm a high-impact annual donation of $1,200 ($100/month), or $600 ($50/month) for women under 40 years of age. A charitable tax receipt will be provided for the full amount of your donation.

“We are so grateful for the QCH Foundation’s Women in Philanthropy members who recognize that Vital Signs Monitors in the Emergency Department are vital to the work we are doing. This piece of equipment is used over 400 times a day in our department. New machines mean safer, more efficient care that benefits both the patient and nursing staff.”
