It’s a privilege to hear the stories of those who have benefited from the amazing care at HGH. I’m constantly in awe of the generosity of our donors, who give knowing that they have directly impacted services at HGH for those they care about.

Eve de Grosbois

Donor Relations Officer

Before joining the HGH Foundation, Eve de Grosbois worked in the field of architecture for more than 15 years and has been involved in academic research in the design field. From early on, she became interested in environmental psychology, the dimension of accessibility, as well as healing spaces. Having sat on the HGH Board of Directors, as well as attending many births at HGH’s Family Birthing Centre as a doula, she knows the hospital well.

Eve builds and maintains warm and enthusiastic relationships with the Foundation’s donors. She helps them understand the impact of their generosity, and ensures they feel appreciated and recognized as leaders in the community.

I was born at HGH and I have since witnessed, time and again, exceptional care, full of kindness and humanism, provided to my family, my loved ones and myself. And all the positive testimonials from HGH users confirm the extent to which my gratitude for our hospital and its donors is true: each donation makes a difference in the quality of care and services provided at HGH!
