On June 24th I will participate in the Subaru Ironman 70.3 Mont-Tremblant as a member Team Heart, in support of the University of Ottawa Heart Institute Foundation.
The Heart Institute’s new state-of-the-art Clinical Tower opened in April 2018, bringing the next frontier of cardiac care excellence to Ottawa. This beautiful 145,000 sq. ft. expansion includes five operating rooms, nine catheterization/electrophysiology labs, and a sunlight filled surgical critical care unit with 27 beds.
The next exciting step in this journey will be the renovations to several floors of the original building on Ruskin Street. With the addition of escalators and a central registration desk, the experience for patients and their families will be significantly enhanced with better access and navigation tools. These additions and renovations will ensure our continued capacity to shape cardiovascular care, research and education well into the future.
Healthcare institutions like the Heart Institute do not receive funding from any level of government for the purchase of critical and highly specialized equipment. This much needed equipment is purchased with support like ours, which will make a big impact on changing lives and saving lives in our community.
Ironman 70.3 Mont Tremblant offers challenging swim, bike, and run courses and I am ready for the challenge!
I hope you can join me and Team Heart to help us ensure that the Heart Institute Foundation provides the best care possible for all patients well into the future.
Thank you for your support and making a difference!
