How you can help
With the funding it receives from the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, Montfort can provide quality care during the more than 350,000 patient visits it receives annually. However, it is through the generosity of thousands of donors – those heroes who care about the well-being of others and work behind the scenes to give back to their community – that the hospital can achieve excellence and provide exemplary care and services to the population it serves. Your philanthropy leads to excellence. Excellence saves lives.
At Montfort, more than 250 warm-hearted volunteers are hard at work each day for the sole purpose of enhancing the quality of life of our patients and families. If you or anyone you know has received care at Montfort within the last two years, consider becoming a partner-patient! As such, you will be a voice for our patients, sharing your experiences and opinions to help improve the quality of care and services offered at Montfort.

Orléans Health Hub
As we age, we are at greater risk of multimorbidity: suffering from several illnesses at once. Whether we experience it ourselves or witness it through a loved one, we simply can’t deny the real impact multiple health conditions can have on someone’s life: a referral here, a referral there, an appointment here, an appointment there...
The Orléans Health Hub is a unique and innovative model that will help address gaps in health care coordination for Eastern Ontario. It will bring together a wide range of specialized and community health services under one roof, enabling health care consumers—from newborns to seniors—to focus on their recovery by allowing them to consult with all their care providers during a single visit.
Although the hub’s construction is largely funded by the Ontario government, philanthropy will play an important role in its implementation. That is why the Montfort Foundation will lead, in due time, a major fundraising campaign to support the hub’s construction. Donors have already contributed more than $500,000 to help build this incredibly promising model that will help improve people’s lives.
