Bruyère Foundation



Bruyère plays a critical role in our capital region’s healthcare system, providing services across our hospital campuses, in Long Term Care (LTC), and supportive and independent living for seniors and vulnerable populations.  

Individuals referred to Bruyère have often suffered a loss of independence and function, usually because of a significant medical event or illness. While acute care hospitals save lives, our post-acute care hospitals restore independence and function, providing patients with a bridge to return home. 

As an academic healthcare organization, Bruyère’s hospitals specialize in the delivery of rehabilitation, complex medical, palliative, and primary care. 

Our Impact

Together. Making each life better.

Driven by learning, research and innovation, our mission is to lead an integrated system of care that maximizes the quality of life and heath potential of our patients, residents and tenants.

As an academic health care organization, Bruyère is committed to providing compassionate and holistic care, respecting the dignity and diversity of all. As a Catholic organization, we are inspired by the values and legacy of Mother Élisabeth Bruyère. Our services in aging and rehabilitation, medically complex, palliative, residential and primary care respond to your needs throughout your life.
