Canadian Pacific Women's Open
To coincide with Canada 150 celebrations, the 2017 Canadian Pacific Women's Open will return to the nation's capital and the Ottawa Hunt and Golf Club from August 21-27, 2017. Through its CP Has Heart campaign, CP will once again make a significant donation to the host community by making The Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) the official beneficiary of the tournament.
Congenital heart disease is the world’s leading birth defect and the doctors, nurses and staff at CHEO treat over 600 babies, toddlers, pre-teens and teens with heart related issues each year. In an effort to better care for all of these patients, CHEO will be embarking on a $1.8 million renovation that will merge the hospital’s Catheterization Lab and the Interventional Suite. A redesigned space, specialized equipment and pediatric specific training will be critically important elements in the health and wellness of CHEO’s patients. Filled with cutting edge technology, this new space will offer young cardiac patients improved diagnoses and treatment. This means safer care, with the lowest possible exposure to radiation, less invasive procedures, in some cases the elimination of surgery altogether and faster recovery times to help get them home as quickly as possible.
“Technological advancements offering the clearest and most concise images for our doctors are a vital element of the Catheterization Lab and Interventional Suite upgrade that will be funded with the help of CP’s “Beautiful Hearts” campaign,” said Kevin Keohane, CHEO Foundation President and CEO. “The result will be a technologically advanced suite that will allow doctors and technologists to more accurately diagnose, and more gently treat, vulnerable young patients.”
Stay tuned to see how, together, we can further contribute and help CHEO in the coming months.
$4.3 million has been raised in support of children's heart health in the first two years of CP's title sponsorship of the event.
