Bringing the Future Closer

Our $75 Million Capital Campaign needs your support.

The generosity and commitment of our community enables our doctors, nurses, researchers and specialists to advance cardiovascular care and save more lives every day.

Our first ever capital campaign is funding the largest expansion in the Institute’s 40 year history. The project is on schedule and on budget. The new 170,000 sq/ft Life Support Centre contains more ORs and treatment labs, featuring $47 million in new, donor-funded equipment.

The Ottawa Heart Institute's new building will be completed in the Spring of 2018 and there is an urgent need to purchase new cardiac equipment.

Together, we can take this world-class cardiac center to the next level and allow us to continue to recruit world leaders in cardiac treatment and research.

Please help us to ensure our community receives the best patient care possible. Together we can warm the hearts of many.

Thank you for giving with heart!
