This Valentine’s Day, we want to share our love with our Queensway Carleton Hospital (QCH) team to express how grateful we are for the extraordinary care they provide to our patients and community. And this year more than ever, we want our team to know just how appreciated they truly are.

At QCH, you have the opportunity to recognize and share your gratitude and appreciation when a QCH team member or department has provided exceptional care by making a Champion of Care donation in their honour. A Champion of Care is an individual or department that has displayed the utmost dedication and compassion while providing extraordinary care to you or your loved ones.

When a Champion of Care donation is made, members of the Foundation team present a pin of recognition to your Champion in front of their peers and read out your message of gratitude, explaining why you chose to honour them as a Champion.  These presentations are coordinated with department managers to surprise and honour these exceptional team members for their passion and commitment to patient care.

The message you provide will also be shared with their colleagues, supervisors and senior team to share the pride in this special recognition, and with your permission we will also share your message and story to recognize your Champion publicly. Your gift not only shows your appreciation, it goes directly back into patient care and puts the necessary tools in the hands of our healthcare team.

By making a donation in honour of your Champion of Care, you are making a wonderful gesture that lets your Champion know how much they are appreciated.

For any inquiries on the Champion of Care program or to make a donation by telephone, please contact Sara Prendergast at sprendergast@qch.on.ca or 613-721-4700 ext. 1061.


Thank you for helping us share the love this Valentine’s Day.
