About the Foundation

Helping patients get their lives back

Community support and the generosity of individuals has been part of West Park’s more than 100 years of service.

In fact, the hospital was founded with the support of a philanthropic legacy.  In 1904, Sir William Gage purchased the Buttonwood Farm to offer as the site of a new hospital, beginning a legacy of care that has helped thousands of patients to reclaim their lives.

Today, West Park Healthcare Centre Foundation serves as the official fundraising vehicle of the hospital, supporting innovative methods of treatment, leading-edge research and patient care technology.  

The support of our community is now more important than ever, as West Park develops its campus into a world-class centre of rehabilitative care.  West Park Foundation has embarked on the ambitious Get Your Life Back Campaign to raise $80 million towards the capital costs of our new hospital so we can continue providing the very best care for the growing number of people who need it.

Your support during this critical time in our history will accelerate our bold transformation and help people facing life-altering injury and illness get back to their lives – back to their homes, back to their families and back to doing what they love most.

West Park Foundation is fully accredited under Imagine Canada’s Standards Program.
