About MUHC Foundation

Founded in 1998, the McGill University Health Centre (MUHC) Foundation exists to fund patient care and research across the MUHC and support the institution’s teaching mandate. From paediatric to adult medicine, the MUHC Foundation ensures a continued source of funding and strives to build a healthier future for the community. Firmly committed to making a difference in patients’ lives, it plays a pivotal role in supporting exceptional programs, purchasing leading medical equipment, fostering ground-breaking research, and ensuring the highest level of teaching offered at its constituent hospitals.

How we helped

The McGill University Health Centre (MUHC) Foundation and the Royal Victoria Hospital (RVH) Foundation integrated their operations and human resources to coordinate their efforts in order to fulfil their mission of raising funds in support of the McGill University Health Centre’s priorities. As such, Phil Communications was mandated to develop a new website serving both organisations and adding new functionalities. For several years, Phil has supported the marketing team with ongoing website improvements and other requests.
