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.

“Simply put, Dr. Meterissian saved my life. I can think of no better way to say thank you, than by making him my Hospital Hero.” – Samia Sayegh, grateful patient

Yesterday, researchers, donors and staff gathered to celebrate the official opening of the RI-MUHC Centre for Outcomes Research and Evaluation (CORE) in its new home on 5252 boulevard de Maisonneuve. Created in 2013, CORE comprises more than 90 experts in epidemiology, biostatistics, clinical trials and health services research who work to improve the health and health care of Canadians. Previously scattered in various locations, these researchers as well as over 350 trainees and professional staff are now finally united under one roof. Funding for the new infrastructure, which is located a few steps away from the Glen site, was supported in large part by the MUHC Foundation via the Best Care for Life Campaign and by the federal-provincial Strategic Investment Fund. ...
