Our President’s Message

President, Concordia Foundation - Dr. Thomas Turgeon

Dr. Thomas Turgeon, BSc, MD, MPH, FRCSC President, Concordia Foundation

Reflecting on this past year and what’s ahead
Concordia Foundation continues to be blessed with tremendous support from the Community. This past year, we have continued growth with our Board Members, our Physicians, our Staff and our role to support the Hospital.

The Foundation is stronger than ever.
We continue to seek funds from the community for key projects at Concordia and this year, board members and volunteers worked tirelessly to fund some of the greatest needs at Concordia. We continue to raise funds to support key projects and equipment which impact the Hospital’s ability to serve our patients with the best technology and highest quality of care available.

The Foundation has raised $4 million towards its current Concordia Health & Fitness Centre Campaign. We continue to work with Government and are delighted by individual, business, and community support for this $45 million campaign.

We continue to carry out our five-year growth strategy, drawing on important strengths. The Foundation Board brings valuable talent, knowledge, and a wealth of experience to the table. Concordia Wellness Project’s Board of Director’s Chair, David Olfert, and Concordia Hospital’s Board Chair, Roger Gripp, foster momentum and help set the Foundation’s direction and priorities.

We will be augmenting an already-strong Board of Directors to help us meet ambitious fundraising goals. Future expansion of the Foundation Board will further diversify and broaden our representation, helping to build our network of friends enhancing fundraising in an extremely competitive environment.
