About the organization
Basic details : The Ottawa Hospital Research Institute, formerly Ottawa Health Research Institute, is a non-profit academic health research institute located in the city of Ottawa. It was formed in 2001 following the merger of three Ottawa hospitals
Vision : The Ottawa Hospital Research Institute's vision is:
To give our patients and their loved ones new hope through research that is making tomorrow's health care possible today.
This vision expresses our commitment to research that is focused on patients and inspired by patients. It draws on the compassion and dedication we feel each day, knowing that every question we answer and every problem we solve could eventually impact many people, including our loved ones. As basic scientists, physicians, nurses, trainees and other researchers, we are committed to translating our results into benefits for patients and society and making tomorrow's health care possible today.
Our vision is closely aligned with The Ottawa Hospital's vision, which is "To provide each patient with the world-class care, exceptional service and compassion we would want for our loved ones". It also fits well with the University of Ottawa's inspiring goal of being "Canada's University" and a destination school for research.
