The Minto Group Donates $250,000 to new Orléans Health Hub

OTTAWA, ON—June 09, 2022: The Minto Group (“Minto”) has donated $250,000 to the Montfort Foundation as a formal Building Partner of the new Orléans Health Hub, to support the development of its Mental Health and Wellness program. 

Located at the corner of Mer-Bleue Road and Brian Coburn Boulevard, the Orléans Health Hub offers residents of Ottawa’s east end a range of specialized clinics, rehabilitation programs, seniors’ services and more. 

The partnership is a proud endeavor for Minto, having supported healthcare organizations in the Ottawa area for more than 20 years, including the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO), the Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre, the Ottawa Hospital and the Queensway Carleton Hospital. 

“Caring for the mental health and well-being of our community has always been a priority,” says Brent Strachan, Division President at Minto Communities Ottawa. “We’re thrilled to support such a progressive, innovative facility that’s uniquely focused on the mental health needs of patients.” 

To inspire staff, patients and visitors—and to visually commemorate its contribution—Minto also gifted a new mural to the hospital’s Mental Health and Wellness program. Flowing lines and soothing colours depict a sunset scene that evokes a connection to nature, a common theme among the artist’s work.

“Maintaining a personal relationship with nature is vital,” says mural artist Ryan Smeeton. “It’s intrinsically interwoven with one’s health and well-being. This project was the perfect opportunity to expand upon this vision with a piece that contributes to a healing, soothing and forward-thinking environment.”
