A prestigious honour for the ophthalmology department

On March 14, 2016, the Foundation proudly accepted the honour of having the Hôpital Maisonneuve-Rosemont Ophthalmology Department designated as the Centre universitaire d’ophtalmologie de l’Université de Montréal (CUO).

Over the last decade, the Foundation contributed over $12M to the development of the field of vision health, all for the benefit of patients. This designation is the crowning achievement that recognizes the excellent work of HMR’s teams. As the population ages, the incidence of blindness and poor vision is growing exponentially. Delivering state-of-the-art care is a public health priority that will help people stay active and maintain their independence. This designation ushers in a new era of cooperation that will result in a greater synergy between the patient-care, education and research activities of all the ophthalmology teachers at Université de Montréal. More than ever, these professionals will share their expertise and keep in step with discoveries and emerging therapies on the global stage.
