About Fondation CHU Saint-Justine:

Founded in 1987 through the merger of Fondation Justine-Lacoste-Beaubien and Fondation Sainte-Justine, Fondation CHU Sainte-Justine (FCHU) raises funds to care for women and children at Sainte-Justine University Hospital Centre. The hospital is the largest mother and child care centre in Canada. FCHU’s focus is on risky pregnancies, mental diseases, cancer care, muscle disorders and heart care. The foundation also funds research and teaching at Sainte-Justine University Hospital Centre.

In F2015, Fondation CHU Sainte-Justine allocated $25.2m to the hospital. It spent $11.3m on research, $10.8m on patient care and $3.1m on teaching. The hospital has more than 5,600 employees, including 502 physicians and dentists and contains the second largest pediatric research centre in Canada. Sainte-Justine University Hospital Centre also teaches more than 3,500 students. Every year, the hospital treats 70,000 people in its emergency ward and 200,000 people in outpatient clinics. Doctors at the hospital operate on 11,000 people and deliver 3,300 babies each year.

In 2013, Fondation CHU Sainte-Justine started a 5-year $150m fundraising campaign, Healing More Better, to expand facilities at the hospital. Its previous fundraising campaign, Growing Up Healthy, raised $125m. FCHU used these funds to expand Centre de Cancerologie Charles-Bruneau and move Montreal’s Ronald McDonald House to a new building.
