The MUHC’s Glen Site opened its doors in 2015 and ever since researchers, staff, and health care professionals have been working to establish one of the world’s preeminent academic health care networks.

Affiliated with the Faculty of Medicine of McGill University, the MUHC continues to play a leading role in shaping the course of adult and pediatric medicine in Quebec and across Canada. By attracting clinical and research expertise from around the world, assessing the latest in medical technology, and training the next generation of medical professionals, the MUHC has become a force of nature within the health care sector.

As one of the largest hospitals of its kind in North America, every year the MUHC receives 715,000 ambulatory patients, 177,000 visits to the emergency department, and almost 40,000 inpatients. These numbers do not include the nearly 35,000 surgeries completed at the hospital per year.

Donations make the difference between the excellent care our passionate staff strive to provide and their ability to go above and beyond the call of duty; to do so they require the right tools and environment. With your generosity, only the MUHC Foundation can fund this difference.

An unrestricted or undesignated gift is a donation that allows the MUHC Foundation to direct your selfless support to the priority needs of the hospital. Unrestricted gifts are extremely important because they give our foundation the flexibility to use your donation to make an impact where and when the hospital’s needs it most. Due to the nature of the hospital needs, funds can be requested at any point throughout the year, making the urgency of their availability of the utmost importance to the wellbeing of patients.

By supporting Priority Needs with an undesignated donation, you aid life-saving projects and programs that may not have adequate funding. From research discoveries supporting new diagnostic and treatment options to new wheelchairs, supporting the MUHC through Priority Needs is the best way for donors to make an impact where it is needed most.

“With the help of the MUHC Foundation and our other hospital foundations, the MUHC can and will continue to make an exceptional impact on people’s lives. Together, we’ll go farther than either of us can dream today.”

– Dr. Pierre Gfeller, President and Executive Director, MUHC
