Well Wishes from the Heart

Would you like to send well wishes to a loved one who is admitted at the University of Ottawa Heart Institute?

We can deliver messages to inpatients on your behalf. Fill out this form indicating the patient’s name, room number and your message.

If you don’t know the whereabouts of your friend or family member, you can ask by calling 613-696-7000 ext. 0. For privacy reasons, we may not be able to confirm whether a person is admitted.

This inbox is checked on weekdays. Your messages will be hand-delivered to patients within one to two business days of receipt. 

If received after 1 p.m. weekdays, on weekends or during a national or statutory holiday, we will deliver your well wishes the following business day. We cannot deliver messages to discharged patients.

We are only accepting well wishes. Any other type of message (for example, emails conducting personal business, messages containing questionable content, or solicitations) will be deleted.
