This year, we are celebrating 40 years of collaboration between the Foundation and the HMR, 40 years of support for key projects that are deeply significant to the HMR, its doctors and its researchers. Forty years ago, during our first fundraising efforts, 16 donors responded to our appeal. Today, we count 15,000 loyal supporters. Among them, HMR employees, volunteers and retirees, who have donated over $2 million to their own foundation.

 On June 7th, the CIUSSS de l’Est-de-l’Île de Montréal, represented by its President and Chief Executive Officer, Yvan Gendron, recognized these 40 years of invaluable collaboration. “Over the years, support from the HMR Foundation has enabled the realization of numerous projects focusing on the harmonization of patient care, research, and teaching,” underlined Mr. Gendron.

The CIUSSS de l’Est-de-l’Île de Montréal launched a large-scale visibility campaign throughout the HMR to raise patients’, employees’ and volunteers’ awareness of the Foundation’s support. We are grateful for this wonderful recognition; it belongs to the thousands of donors who support our efforts.
