Working together makes a real difference.
Almost 50 years ago, a dedicated group of community-minded individuals joined forces in the fight against cancer. Since its inception so many years ago, the Cedars Cancer Institute at the McGill University Health Centre (MUHC) has established itself as an independent leader in comprehensive cancer care in the Montreal community. By raising much-needed funds for medical equipment and facilities, research, and education, Cedars provides invaluable tools, knowledge, and support services to individuals and families who are coping with the ill effects of the disease. Cedars is committed to meeting the needs of all MUHC cancer patients, from pediatric, adolescent and young adult, to adult through to palliative care at the MUHC. It is through the generosity of its supporters that Cedars continues to make a lasting difference. www.cedars.ca
One of the world’s foremost academic health centres, the MUHC offers exceptional and integrated patient-centric care, research, teaching and technology assessment. Affiliated with the Faculty of Medicine of McGill University, it is highly committed to the continuum of care in its community. The partner hospitals of the MUHC—the Lachine Hospital, the Montreal Chest Institute, the Montreal General Hospital, the Montreal Neurological Hospital, the Royal Victoria Hospital and the Montreal Children’s Hospital— value multidisciplinary service throughout the lifespan, innovative technologies and practices, strategic partnerships and leadership in knowledge transfer.
The MUHC is currently carrying out a $2.35-billion Redevelopment Project on three sites—the Glen, and the Montreal General and Lachine hospitals—designed to provide healthcare professionals with an effective environment in which to ensure patients and their families benefit from The Best Care for Life. The sites are also anchored in best sustainable-development practices, including LEED® and BOMA BEST® guidelines. www.muhc.ca
The Montreal Children’s Hospital provides the highest quality healthcare to infants, children and teenagers. Each year tens of thousands of children and families from across Quebec and beyond seek care from our health professionals. We serve our patients in both French and English and we have a dedicated team of medical interpreters who together speak more than 40 languages. www.thechildren.com
