The Foundation encourages philanthropic donations for the Queensway Carleton Hospital, to continuously improve and enhance our outstanding patient care. We partner with inspired members of the community to implement a wide variety of fundraising initiatives to achieve our goal.
Our goal is to raise $30 Million in 6 years.
Help Queensway Carleton Hospital meet the growing healthcare needs of our community.
If you have visited the Queensway Carleton Hospital lately you will certainly have noticed some impressive changes, most recently the official opening of The James Beach Health Care Centre. The changes made to the hospital over the past few years have all been for the benefit of improved patient care. Changes like the opening of the Irving Greenberg Family Cancer Centre, a new cardio pulmonary clinic, the addition of a new MRI increasing capacity and decreasing wait times, the addition of 10 new state of the art surgical suites, a new dialysis program improving the quality of life of our dialysis patients by giving them back hours of travel time each week! These changes name but a few!
The mission of the QCH Foundation is to improve and save lives by working with our donors, our hospital and our community to encourage philanthropic gifts in support of patient care. It is a an honour and a privilege each and every day to work with our outstanding donor community and volunteers who have made our transformational changes possible! The changes will keep on coming! I’ll keep you posted on the developments of our new entrance and the much needed renovations of our diagnostic imaging department taking place over the next several months.
This year the foundation is focused on raising funds for 10 critical pieces of equipment that will touch lives in almost every department of QCH; “Better Tools for Better Care”. Did you know that the cost of acquiring new equipment falls 100% on our community? The role of the foundation is to take health care delivery at QCH from adequate (the role of the Province) to excellent… I hope you will help us raise the bar and allow the right tools to fall into the right hands to deliver excellent health care! Each month I will post some information on one of the pieces of needed equipment – none of it is over the top –all are much needed upgrades for improved patient care.
There are so many ways for you to help us or to become involved with the work of the Foundation… browse through our website and perhaps you’ll see a fit for you.
I welcome your input, your calls and your questions… and on behalf of our patients, their familes and our caregivers, I am grateful for your support!
Wishing you health,
