About the McGill University Health Centre
For more than 150 years, the McGill University Health Centre (MUHC) founding hospitals have been providing the best possible care to the community, and in 1997, the MUHC was officially created through the merger of 5 hospitals: Montreal Children’s Hospital, Montreal Chest Institute, Montreal General Hospital, Montreal Neurological Institute & Hospital, and Royal Victoria Hospital. These hospitals’ respective research institutes merged to form the Research Institute of the MUHC and in 2008, the Lachine Hospital and Camille Lefebvre Pavilion also joined the MUHC.
Affiliated with McGill University’s Faculty of Medicine, the MUHC is an academic health centre that provides some of the most advanced care in the province, which includes complex diagnoses, treatments, and surgeries in the areas of cardiology, endocrinology, transplantation, neurology, oncology, and respirology, among many others. The MUHC cares for some of the most critically ill patients across Quebec and provides highly-specialized care, treatments, and medical testing that other hospitals simply cannot offer.
In June of 2015, the Glen site of the MUHC was inaugurated and this complex now houses the new Montreal Children’s Hospital, Royal Victoria Hospital, Montreal Chest Institute, the Cedars Cancer Centre, and the Research Institute of the MUHC. Patients and their families are at the heart of the design and layout of the new hospital.
With 1,356 physicians and over 12,000 nurses, support staff, and employees, the hospital at the Glen site is a patient-centred facility that helps to not only heal the body, but also the soul. It has helped the MUHC transform the way in which it delivers the highest level of care to our population, ensuring that all patients truly receive the best care for life.
In addition to clinical care, the MUHC is an international research powerhouse that conducts both fundamental and clinical research. The Research Institute of the MUHC supports 446 researchers and ongoing research collaborations with 62 countries; it continues to shape the course of adult and pediatric medicine by attracting research leaders from around the world.
Every year, close to 3,000 students train at the MUHC, including medical and surgical residents, nurses, medical students, and allied-health students. From pediatric medicine to adult trauma, students receive highly-specialized training, which thoroughly prepares them for their positions within the medical profession. All MUHC physicians are also professors within the McGill University Faculty of Medicine.

About The McGill University Health Centre Foundation
The MUHC Foundation plays a pivotal role in supporting exceptional programs, purchasing innovative medical equipment, fostering ground-breaking research, and ensuring the highest level of teaching.
In 2015, the MUHC and Royal Victoria Hospital Foundations partnered and began working together in order to fulfill their missions of raising funds in support of the hospital’s greatest needs. By aligning our fundraising priorities, and integrating our Board and staff teams, the MUHC and RVH Foundations were better positioned to ensure that patient care, teaching, and research needs were met. Since then, we have strengthened fundraising capacity and contributed record-breaking amounts to support the greatest needs of the Royal Victoria Hospital, and effective April 1, 2018, the Royal Victoria Hospital Foundation officially changed its name to the McGill University Health Centre Foundation. We are now one united Foundation focused on investing in patient care, research and teaching.
Our Foundation is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors which includes members from the medical, scientific, academic, and business communities. These dynamic leaders ensure that we maintain the highest standards with regards to ethics and best accounting practices. The Board oversees and approves the Foundation’s budget, fundraising goals, and the granting of funds raised to support the priorities of the MUHC.
The MUHC Foundation is comprised of a team of 28 staff members and total revenues in 2017 – 2018 were $28 million. Our Foundation continues to be in high growth mode as our donor community grew by a remarkable 26%, and our revenues increased by close to 25% in the past year. We have put in place a new strategic plan that outlines key strategic priorities for future growth and success with a diversified fundraising strategy that balances funding for all priority areas of need.
