Independence with each breath. Tricking your heart into thinking you exercise. Riding for cancer research. The 2017-2018 annual report is packed with stories of compassion, research, and community.

Watch the video of Marty Meech, who gains independence with each breath. The CANVent Program, developed at The Ottawa Hospital, uses revolutionary nonsurgical technology to help neuromuscular patients breathe on their own.

Learn about ground-breaking discoveries by our researchers. For example, a research team led by Drs. Lynn Megeney and Duncan Stewart found that you could trick your heart into thinking you exercise, which could lead to new treatments for heart failure.

Meet cancer survivor Pam Beschervais, who decided to get back on her bicycle and register for THE RIDE, the hospital’s signature cycling fundraiser. She is supporting cancer research, which she may need someday if her cancer returns.

These and so many other stories acknowledge and celebrate the world-class care we provide to our patients every day.
