Together for the HMR Fund: Together we make the difference!

Julie Desharnais, Executive Director, HMR FoundationThe second wave of COVID-19 further demonstrates the dilapidated state of the Hôpital Maisonneuve-Rosemont (HMR) installations and the vulnerability of our patients. It also brings to light how much your support is important and makes a difference. This is why Dr. François Marquis is appealing to your solidarity.

Your support is more vital than ever!

HMR’s teams are there 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, rarely seeing their family and loved ones, sacrificing their spare time and holidays, to care for COVID patients as well as for the most vulnerable people in our community.

We are all fed-up with COVID, but we must remain united and not relax our efforts, because the lives of those we love and interact with every day are a stake.Dr. François Marquis, Chief of Intensive Care at Hôpital Maisonneuve-Rosemont and Adjunct Professor at Université de Montréal

Thanks to your generosity and your solidarity, we were able to acquire equipment and replace machines used-up by the pandemic, that are essential to the screening, quality of life and survival of our patients. But the pandemic does not take a break and the need is great.

You, me, all of us, need to keep on working together to help those around us and save lives. We are in a marathon. Behind the COVID statistics, there are people, families, who are experiencing tragedies and counting upon us to make the difference, together.

That is why I am inviting you to contribute to the Together for the HMR Fund right now.

Julie Desharnais, Executive Director, HMR FoundationYou will give us the means of acquiring additional ultrasound machines, notably for the Emergency Room, as well as electrocardiograms. You will allow us to carry out research to help HMR patients, especially those weakened by their stay in Intensive Care, regain a true quality of life. And much more.

The pandemic makes us realize how closely connected we all are. Every action, every gift counts and has a direct impact on the health and wellbeing of our community.Julie Desharnais, Executive Director, HMR Foundation

Thank you so much for being there with us! You are source of healing!
