Your Impact


“Thanks to generous donors like you, the JGH was there every step of the way. The medical team used donor-funded state-of-the-art technology to perform minimally invasive surgery, specifically the Da Vinci robot. This surgical robot is funded by donors and is the reason why I avoided open-heart surgery and the side effects that come with it.”

— Barton, JGH Patient

Your generosity has a profound impact on the lives of thousands of patients who come through our doors each day. And on the patients of tomorrow. From awe-inspiring medical breakthroughs to state-of-the-art equipment, from ground-breaking research to setting the benchmark in patient-centred care—you push the boundaries of what is possible.


Rallying your community through local events can make a significant difference in the lives of patients now and in the future. In this video, Dr. Tsafrir Vanounou and patients highlight the importance of partnership in the accelerating research and discovering life-saving treatment options. The patient testimonies are a reminder of how the act of rallying your community through local events can make a significant difference in the lives of patients now and in the future. This is a must-watch for anyone whose experience at the JGH can act as a driving force to increase awareness and funds for an important cause.


At the heart of all that we do is the patient. And excellence in patient-centred care is what drives us.

Since 1934, thanks to an unparalleled team of doctors, nurses and allied health professionals, the JGH has been providing compassionate care and cutting-edge treatment to patients from diverse religious and cultural backgrounds in Montreal, throughout Quebec, and beyond.

As the province’s leading acute-care hospital, responding to the changing demographics and medical needs of our patients is of the utmost priority. For the Foundation, this means enabling an ever-increasing emphasis on collaborative and connected care, pioneering strategies in preventative healthcare, and modernizing facilities and services.


Improved diagnoses. Earlier detection. New and improved therapies. These can only be achieved through extensive clinical and laboratory research—a cornerstone of the JGH and its Lady Davis Institute for Medical Research.

As one of Canada’s largest and most influential research centres and noted for its breakthroughs in the fields of AIDS, aging, cancer and genetics, we are deeply committed to investing in novel approaches to help the JGH remain at the forefront of scientific discovery and clinical excellence—for the benefit of us all.


Transforming healthcare delivery means continually innovating—equipment, facilities, technology and practices. The current realities have accelerated the need to respond nimbly and effectively—particularly in the convergence of digital technologies with health. And the JGH leads the way forward.

Leveraging robotics to provide more personalized surgeries. Embracing artificial intelligence to help patients live healthier lives. Offering Telemedicine to provide virtual care including remote diagnosis and treatment. And integrating all patient-related information into one Connected Care digital system. You have that power.
