HGH Foundation achievements

Thanks to the generosity of the community and its precious volunteers, the Foundation continually contributes to the improvement of patient care and the addition of new services at HGH.

From 1990 to 2006, the Foundation purchased more than $2.5 million worth of medical equipment for the hospital. From 2006 and throughout the Heart & Soul campaign, the Foundation raised $7 million for the hospital’s major redevelopment project, a critical element of the hospital being able to move forward with its expansion plan.

From 2015 to 2019, the Foundation raised $4 million through its Access 2018 campaign, which has provided the hospital with two pieces of state-of-the-art diagnostic imaging equipment – a new CT scanner and HGH’s first-ever magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machine. From 2020 to 2022, during the pandemic, the Foundation contributed more than $700,000 for various COVID-19 relief initiatives and the launch of new programs.

In 2023, the Foundation made a generous contribution to HGH as part of the There’s No Place Like Home campaign, including funding for equipment for endoscopy and cardiology services. They also contributed $10,000 for HGH’s Children Rehabilitation Program of Eastern Ontario.
