Placing the patient at the heart of its commitment, the mission of the Fondation du Centre hospitalier de l’Université de Montréal (CHUM) is to support one of the largest teaching hospital centres in North America. Thanks to the generosity of its donors, the Fondation is able to provide a source of complementary funding to the CHUM, thus helping to maintain its position as an international benchmark. The Fondation invests itself for the well being of the CHUM patients by helping to acquire cutting-edge technology, supporting research projects leading to the development of promising treatments, and financing medical training and health promotion. Every action makes a difference and contributes to giving them the best in healthcare.
