February is Heart Month and it provided an amazing opportunity to bring people together to raise awareness – and essential funds – for the University of Ottawa Heart Institute. Our sincere thanks to our sponsors, community champions, partners, event organizers and participants, volunteers, and donors.
Our new building – the Heart Institute’s first major expansion since its founding more than 40 years ago – will be completed in early 2018. This expansion will allow the Heart Institute to address patient needs for the long term, treating more patients on an ongoing basis with an increased focus on specialized cardiac needs. As the building nears completion, our focus is on purchasing the highly specialized equipment it will require.
Thank you for supporting the University of Ottawa Heart Institute Foundation. Your generosity goes straight to the heart of care in your community because we simply couldn’t do what we do, without you!
