Your Impact: Why We Need You
At the heart of all that we do is the patient. And excellence in patient-centred care is what drives us.
Since 1934, thanks to an unparalleled team of doctors, nurses and allied health professionals, the JGH has been providing compassionate care and cutting-edge treatment to patients from diverse religious and cultural backgrounds in Montreal, throughout Quebec, and beyond.
As the province’s leading acute-care hospital, responding to the changing demographics and medical needs of our patients is of the utmost priority. For the Foundation, this means enabling an ever-increasing emphasis on collaborative and connected care, pioneering strategies in preventative healthcare, and modernizing facilities and services.

Improved diagnoses. Earlier detection. New and improved therapies. These can only be achieved through extensive clinical and laboratory research—a cornerstone of the JGH and its Lady Davis Institute for Medical Research.
As one of Canada’s largest and most influential research centres and noted for its breakthroughs in the fields of AIDS, aging, cancer and genetics, we are deeply committed to investing in novel approaches to help the JGH remain at the forefront of scientific discovery and clinical excellence—for the benefit of us all.
“Foundation funds serve as an incubator helping to kick start my laboratory and build a team in stem cell research. We hope to be able to translate our findings into new ways of personalizing blood cancer treatments for patients at the JGH, in Canada and around the world.”
Transforming healthcare delivery means continually innovating—equipment, facilities, technology and practices. The current realities have accelerated the need to respond nimbly and effectively—particularly in the convergence of digital technologies with health. And the JGH leads the way forward.
Leveraging robotics to provide more personalized surgeries. Embracing artificial intelligence to help patients live healthier lives. Offering Telemedicine to provide virtual care including remote diagnosis and treatment. And integrating all patient-related information into one Connected Care digital system. You have that power.
