About Us

The University of Ottawa Heart Institute Foundation plays a vital role in ensuring that many of the most critical components of world-class cardiac care are available. The Heart Institute’s new clinical tower will be completed in 2018; further renovations by 2020. The need to purchase new equipment is immediate, allowing the Heart Institute to serve the long-term cardiac care needs of our community.

When you GIVE WITH HEART this Heart Month your support will help the Heart Institute deliver patient-focused care, bench-to-bedside and bedside-to-bedside research initiatives, and prevention and education programs right here in our community.
