The campaign Life can change in an instant aims to provide West Islanders with :

State-of-the-art Intensive and Cardiac Care : Your investment will allow for the reconfiguration and equipping of the Intensive Care Unit and Cardiac Unit, to reflect current best practices. You will add 4 new intensive care rooms as well as state-of-the-art equipment, essential to patient survival in order to create an efficient multifunctional integrated space of 15 intensive care beds and 8 cardiac beds. The addition of four new intensive care rooms will increase the admission capacity by 270 additional patients per year!

Improving the Quality of Geriatric Care : Your investment will meet the needs of the aging population in our community – whose proportion is growing more rapidly than on the Island of Montreal. It will modernize and expand geriatric services to give our parents and grandparents the care and attention they deserve. Specifically, wheelchair and specialized equipment accessible bathrooms, improved common areas and therapeutic socialization areas, individual rooms and isolation rooms to contain infections.

Improving Mental Health Care : Your investment will help relocate the Psychiatric Care Unit in an open environment with ample natural light, supported by a range of therapeutic practices that are conducive to healing, rehabilitation and early reintegration of patients within the community.

The Lakeshore General Hospital Foundation’s Annual Campaign is launched annually in the fall and wraps up late summer, with our Annual General Meeting. The Foundation holds five main fundraising events throughout the year: the Bâton Rouge Gastronomy Event, the Duck Race, the Annual Golf Tournament, the Lakeshore Ball and the Holiday Gift Wrapping.

We count on your generosity to help us with our mission, which is to advance the state of patient care at the Lakeshore General Hospital. Help us continue to bring health care excellence close to home. We thank you for your support!
