St. Boniface Hospital, a work of charity of the Sisters of Charity of Montreal “Grey Nuns”, is a Catholic tertiary health care facility affiliated with the University of Manitoba.
Marguerite d’Youville, founder of the Grey Nuns, dedicated her life to the poor, revealing the compassionate love of God and trust in Divine Providence.
Sharing in the charisma of Marguerite d’Youville, and in her innovation, leadership and pioneering, the Grey Nuns and committed laity continue to witness God’s love and compassion in the care of those they serve.
St. Boniface Hospital has been providing leadership in health care on behalf of Manitobans since it was first established by the Grey Nuns in 1871. Located at the fork of the Red and Assiniboine Rivers, we were the first hospital in Western Canada, established in St. Boniface as a small four-bed facility to meet the health care needs of the people of the new province of Manitoba (founded in 1870).
From these humble beginnings we’ve grown to become one of Canada’s leading patient care and research facilities, establishing a reputation for leadership in the process. Our growth is a direct result of our ongoing efforts to improve the level of service we provide to the people and communities we serve.
Towards this end we have entered into partnership with numerous organizations, facilities and interest groups, in our continual quest to provide Manitobans with the highest quality health care possible.
As one of Manitoba’s largest health care facilities, St. Boniface maintains a campus comprised of more than 180 departments and services, located in seven separate buildings and situated on 20 acres of land. We also operate several satellite facilities located at off campus sites, and maintain close relationships with other health facilities and well as the health facilities and agencies of the Grey Nun network.
