To date, JFK has purchased over $11 million of high-priority medical equipment for the MCH at both its old location on Atwater, as well as for its new home at the Glen Campus. Through JFK’s 30-year history, almost every department at the Children’s has been touched by our fundraising to help sick children on a daily basis.
Not only is JFK helping the 200,000+ children who seek care at the MCH every year, but thanks to our donations over 1500 healthcare professionals are better equipped to care for their patients. With the medical equipment that JFK purchases, doctors are able to perform procedures using the latest technological advancements. This, in turn, attracts world-class medical professionals to Montreal and the MCH.
Past campaign highlights
Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) – Over $700,000 has been committed to purchasing a variety of high-priority equipment including the Giraffe Panda Incubators and breast pumps for each room within the unit to feed the most fragile preemies and newborn babies. Watch our video to learn more.
Ear, Nose & Throat Department (ENT) –$600,000 raised was allocated to a variety of ENT departments including the operating rooms and various clinics within the hospital. Over $150,000 was used to purchase digital recording systems for both the clinics and operating rooms which are still used today. These tools enable doctors to better diagnose and treat over 13,000 patients per year.
Cardiology – Over $810,000 raised for this department to purchase the most technologically advanced equipment to make little hearts beat healthily.
Operating Suites – JFK donated $1 million to the operating suites at new Glen campus. This endeavor allowed the MCH to update everything needed for the 7000+ yearly surgeries performed at the Hospital. Every child who is taken into the operating room will do so courtesy of JFK.
These are but a few of the departments touched by the fundraising efforts of JFK. While we have given so much to the MCH, our work never stops. As new technologies evolve to better diagnose and treat young patients, a constant need for funds enables us to continue our mission.
