Our History

Over 40 years of experience

The MSCHF was born of the will of the Sisters of Providence, the greatness of heart of a generous donor, and the devotion of volunteers who directed its activities up to 1986.

A few major events that marked our history:

  • 1976
    Creation of the foundation thanks to the tenacity of six individuals: the Honourable Justice Gilles Fillion, Dr Réginald Nadeau, Dr Arthur Pagé, Dr André Proulx, Sister Marie-Paule Levaque and our accountant
    Mr. Guy Crevier.

  • 1987
    Nomination of the first executive director, Ms. Michèle Maratta.

  • 1990
    Launch of our first major fundraising campaign looking to collect $5 million to expand the hospital’s research centre (Phase II), acquire a nuclear magnetic resonance apparatus, and purchase of medical equipment.

  • 2005
    Announcement of the second major fundraising campaign and nomination of Mr.Guy Mongrain as spokesperson.

  • 2008
    Official launch of a major fundraising campaign for the benefit of the future integrated trauma centre. In less than a year, over $12 million was collected.
