Thank you to our fundraisers!
Community fundraising plays an important role in bringing people together while raising much needed funds for various areas of Trillium Health Partners (THP). Thank you for supporting us with your fundraising efforts. The time, energy and commitment that went into planning and hosting your initiatives means so much to us and, thanks to your contributions, we are able to provide the resources our health care teams need to offer exceptional care to every patient who visits our hospital.

Over $ 1.6 million

Below are just a few ways that your support has impacted care across our three hospital sites:
Supporting our COVID-19 response efforts
Partnering to reduce NICU transfers
Over the last two years, THP and the Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) have implemented a formal partnership around NICU transfers. This has expanded the scope of our NICU capabilities so we can care for more high-need newborns in our community and reduce the number of transfers to SickKids for complex care. To support this initiative, we have purchased new ventilators and other devices that provide respiratory support for more babies at our hospital.
Remodeling our approach to care
Enabling suicide prevention in children and youth
Harnessing the power of technology
Thanks to you, we have been able to acquire various important pieces of equipment, including:
- Our new surgical biplane, an essential tool for rapid, life-saving stroke treatment that allows surgeons to quickly locate and remove blood clots without open surgery.
- The new MRI, which enhances the patient experience with features and benefits that include ample room and comfort, shorter exam times and technology that adjusts to a patient’s unique biodiversity.
- Our new heart-lung machine, which takes over the heart and lung function during cardiac surgery so surgeons can stop a patient’s heart while they operate.
- The new digital mammography machine, which combines better image resolution with greater comfort for patients.
When Rachel Braga was told she had cancer at the age of 35, with a daughter only eight, and twin five-year-old boys, she was shocked. Treated successfully, she then began to experience panic attacks. At Trillium Health Partners (THP), she was referred to the coping clinic at the Carlo Fidani Regional Cancer Centre. For Rachel it was huge and, out of gratitude for the help she received, she and her daughter sold scrunchies to raise funds for the clinic. Read more
