About

WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE DO

Since 1976, the University of Ottawa Heart Institute (UOHI) has flourished into Canada’s leading and most distinguished heart health centres for the unparalleled care it provides to its patients, a world-renowned research Institute that brings science from bench to bedside, and the country’s main influencer when it comes to preventing heart disease. Its promise remains the very pillar on which it was built: Always putting patients first.

The University of Ottawa Heart Institute Foundation is the bridge that connects the programs, facilities, and people who save lives every day; with individuals, community groups, and corporate philanthropists who want to invest in the future of cardiac care. 

Through the generous support of the community, the Foundation plays a vital role in ensuring that many of the most critical components of world-class care are available. Funds raised are used for innovative patient-centered care, ground-breaking research, state-of-the-art equipment, and education. Together we help an exceptional team of healthcare professionals advance cardiovascular care and save lives every day.
