What we do

Each week more than 1,500 people will visit Queensway Carleton Hospital (QCH) for emergency services and thousands more will receive treatment and care through our cornerstone programs including Acute Rehab, Childbirth, Critical Care, Emergency, Geriatrics, Medicine, Mental Health and Surgery, along with a full range of services such as diagnostics, orthopedics and acute care of the elderly.

Our loved ones deserve the very best treatment options available and with the tremendous support from our community, QCH Foundation is investing in state-of-the-art equipment and facilities to help reduce wait times and increase capacity to meet the needs of our growing and aging population.

QCH is recognized as one of the top hospitals in the country and thanks to our incredible QCH Foundation donors we will ensure our hospital is equipped to provide world-class care, close to home, to the more than 500,000 people who may turn to it each year.

How You Can Help


As our community grows, so too does the demand for essential services. 

With support from individuals, businesses, corporations and community groups Queensway Carleton Hospital Foundation is investing in important enhancements to our hospital, which include the purchase of new technology and equipment, and upgrades to facilities, to help reduce wait times and improve quality of care for patients.

QCH Foundation is actively fundraising for the top priorities of the hospital to meet the present and future health care needs of those living in west Ottawa. 

With your support, our hospital will expand services and facilities to help meet the emerging healthcare needs of families in our community, which include:

The increasing needs of our region’s aging and growing population. QCH must expand and improve its services for seniors. 

Rapidly advancing healthcare technology. Our patients deserve the best tools available to our physicians, nurses and staff members. 

Expert care, close to home. It’s much better for people to be treated close to home where they have the support of family and friends. 


Volunteers are an integral part of the Queensway Carleton Hospital Foundation, and we want to provide an exceptional and meaningful experience for those who get involved.  There are many ways to volunteer with the QCH Foundation, including joining the Board of Directors, or donating your time and talents to the day-to-day operations of the Foundation.
