About Us >
We embrace tradition, innovation and inspiration
St. Boniface Hospital is a Catholic teaching facility founded by the Sisters of
Charity of Montreal “Grey Nuns.” Established in 1871, the first hospital in Western
Canada, we are pioneers in health care. Our tradition of caring and reputation for
leadership flow from the Grey Nuns’ belief in taking action to care for those who come
to us in need. To do so, we manage our resources efficiently and responsibly. Our
strength lies in creating an environment that respects and welcomes diversity of faith
and cultures. We recognize our special responsibility to the Francophone community.
We anticipate and respond to community needs and lead the way in patient care,
research and education, promoting and ensuring excellence in all that we do. Moved
by the desire to improve quality and safety of care, we work with all health care
providers, researchers, educators, support staff, volunteers, community agencies and
partners seeking innovative ways to improve the quality of life for all.
In our quest for excellence, we are inspired by the passion and the spirit of our
founder, St. Marguerite d'Youville, and the mission of the Grey Nuns. We maintain the
highest ethical standards, respecting life and human dignity, and are committed to the
people we serve. We believe that through the involvement of our patients, staff and
physicians, and our community, we will achieve these goals. The human face of health
care, we are here when you need us most.
