The McGill University Health Centre (MUHC) Foundation held an intimate reception at the Pre-Operative Clinic at the MUHC Glen Site on Wednesday, May 22, to thank Bombardier and the J. Armand Bombardier Foundation for their generous $4 million gift. The donation was part of the MUHC’s Best Care for Life campaign, which helped build and equip the new hospital.
“This is the kind of substantial support which makes it possible for the MUHC to remain at the forefront of excellence in health care,” notes MUHC Foundation President Julie Quenneville. “Bombardier’s tremendous corporate investment in our community and Montreal’s health care infrastructure will continue to have an impact for generations to come.”
The leadership role Bombardier and the J. Armand Bombardier Foundation played early in the campaign with their commitment to give $4 million inspired other members of the corporate community to also support health care in a meaningful way in Montreal.
“We are so grateful that Bombardier has helped us make the necessary investments to push the boundaries of discovery, provide the very best patient care and teach the next generation of medical professionals,” says MUHC Foundation Board Member François L. Morin, a partner with Borden Ladner Gervais in Montreal.
MUHC President and Director General Dr. Pierre Gfeller attended the event, along with Marie Iannantuono, Chief of Operations of Medical Imaging at the MUHC. Guests were invited to tour the medical imaging department and speak with the unit’s highly specialized staff.
