Bruyère Foundation

A message from our leadership

As Bruyère begins to look ahead, we want to take a moment to thank you for your incredible support over the past year

We know many worthy causes frequently approach you, and we greatly appreciate you choosing Bruyère.

In doing so, you put your trust in us. We want to assure you that your generosity continues to make a significant impact, offering better care options for generations of patients.

Bruyère is many things to our community; we are a hospital, a provider of residential services, and we provide a wide range of outpatient services.

We are here to help restore and maintain the aging population's quality of life by promoting healthy aging and independent living. In 2019-2020, thanks to our community's generous support, the Bruyère Foundation was able to distribute over $1.7M in support of the Bruyère Research Institute, Bruyère Continuing Care, and the Hospice Ottawa West Campaign.

At the end of 2019, COVID-19 started shaking the world, and it has been a pivotal time for Bruyère. We continue to face challenges due to underlying issues in our health care system, which have been amplified by the pandemic. But with challenges also come opportunities. Now is the time for us to rise to the occasion and innovate to provide tangible solutions that will transform health care in our region.

The next generation of research, innovation, and teaching strengthens everything we do. The importance of this has never been more evident as we continue to navigate our new reality in the face of COVID-19 and look ahead at the challenges of tomorrow.

We are inspired by the community builders and innovators who are willing to take an active role in improving the quality of life of those we serve.

Thank you for making a difference in the lives of so many in our community and our region.
