Hospital Hero Program

he·ro – ˈhirō/

Definition: a person who is admired for courage, outstanding achievements, or personal qualities, often sacrificing his or her own personal concerns for some greater good.

Heroes walk the halls of the Royal Victoria Hospital of the McGill University Health Centre (MUHC) every day. Whether it’s a physician, nurse, hospital staff member or volunteer, someone who provides exceptional care or goes above and beyond the call of duty can be a hero.

Did you meet your hero at the hospital recently?

Maybe it was the surgeon who saved your life, the nurse who found the time to answer all of your questions, or the member of the housekeeping team who went the extra mile to make your hospital stay more comfortable, your day brighter, or your recovery easier.

The MUHC Foundation’s Hospital Hero program connects patients and their families with the staff, physicians, and volunteers who have changed their lives for the better.

 Who is your Hospital Hero?

If you feel someone made a meaningful difference in your care, express your gratitude by making a donation in their honour to the MUHC Foundation’s Hospital Hero program. Your support will go directly towards improving care at the hospital and will inspire our hospital heroes to continue to provide the compassionate and personalized care that you or your loved one received.

Hospital Heroes will receive a thank you card letting them know a donation was made in their honour along with a special hero pin that they can wear with pride.

This Fall, La Capitale Insurance and Financial Services will double your donation

Just like you, La Capitale Insurance and Financial Services wishes to celebrate the dedication of MUHC employees who make a difference in our patients’ lives. Therefore, to thank the Heroes who are the pride and joy of our hospital, La Capitale Insurance and Financial Services will DOUBLE YOUR DONATION up to $25,000.
