The Lakeshore General Hospital Foundation has received the largest donation in its 49-year history, a $10-million donation from the Trottier Family Foundation.

On Wednesday, Michelle LeDonne, a LGH foundation spokesperson, said the donation would go toward much-need medical equipment for the hospital’s emergency room and its affiliated departments.

However, full details of how the donation will be used to improve health and social services at the West Island hospital will be released Tuesday, May 28, at a news conference at the hospital. Members of the Trottier family are expected to attend.

Earlier this month, the Trottier Family Foundation donated $10 million to create the Trottier Energy Institute at Polytechnique Montréal. The Trottier Family Foundation is one of the city’s most generous philanthropic organizations.

    Wow! That’s incredible and welcome news. Kudos to the Trottier Family Foundation! Now if only the government can resolve the health care issues plaguing us, we might see a rosy future for the hospital.

  2. What a generious donation from the Trottier Family now let’s hope that the money won’t disappear like all our hard worked money. Keep away from the fovernement.
