About Queensway Carleton Hospital Foundation:

The Queensway Carleton Hospital Foundation (QCHF) is the fundraising arm of the Queensway Carleton Hospital, which serves a community of over 400,000 people in the Ottawa Valley. Its mission is to “inspire action from our communities to invest in the Queensway Carleton Hospital.”

In F2014, QCHF launched a new and still ongoing campaign – Advancing Care for All Ages, which aims to raise $30 million. This campaign will help fund the Acute Care of the Elderly (ACE) Unit, a 34-bed geriatric care facility. The funds will also be used to purchase new diagnostic imaging equipment, including a new MRI machine, fluoroscopy unit, and a nuclear gamma camera. QCHF also aims to improve patient care through improvements to its mental health and childbirth programs. In F2015, Queensway Carleton Hospital Foundation purchased the new MRI, fluoroscopy machine, and a CT scanner.

The Foundation is currently looking to invest in new diagnostic imaging technologies to reduce wait times.
