Inspire 2018 Update

As of October 2015, we are now in month nine of the construction phase of the Inspire 2018 campaign, and the Peter Gilgan Patient Care Tower is underway with the completion of the foundation and the installation of the crane in September. The new 17-storey tower will tie in directly to the existing wings on two sides, unifying our site and creating a real front door for the entire hospital as we become the premier critical care hospital in Canada. In this update, Dr. Howard explains what will happen in the coming months, and points to the live video of the construction site in real time and to galleries showing what the new Slaight Family Emergency Department, Element Financial Way and Atrium and the new Shuter Wing will look like, inside and out.

Arne and Beverley Clausen's story

About 25 years ago, Arne had a heart attack and was referred to St. Michael’s for bypass surgery. He was so pleased by his treatment and the outcome that he made regular gifts to the hospital’s heart program for a number of years. When he died, his will revealed a substantial bequest of more than $2 million to St. Michael’s, along with gifts to two other hospitals. Cynthia Collantes, Director – Gift Planning, says that creating a bequest, like Arne’s, is one of the easiest ways to support your favourite charity.
