From a small house on Guy Street, Montreal in 1904, when paediatric medicine was a new specialty, the Children’s Memorial Hospital of Montreal grew to become a university teaching hospital in 1920 (affiliated with McGill University) and, now called Montreal Children’s Hospital (MCH), is recognized worldwide in the fields of genetics, oncology and epidemiology, and is at the forefront of children’s care.

Actor Hugh Jackman, in Montreal filming scenes for the next X-Men film, donated $10,000 to MCH. Jackman’s wife made the donation on behalf of herself, Jackman and the film cast and crew.

Kim Fraser, a spokesperson for the MCH foundation, was thrilled about the donation. “It’s so generous. It came out of the blue,” she told The Star.

Although the hospital has not yet decided where the money will go, the main focus of MCH is on specialized surgery (cardiac, neurosurgery, transplantation and reconstructive) and care of critically ill infants and children.
