A special message from Dr. Alex Gillis

Imagine if the IWK did not exist. Imagine if patients and families had to travel extensively for specialized care.  Imagine if the IWK was unavailable as a source of training and research that attracts and retains world class professionals. Imagine what it would be like for Maritime families lacking the comprehensive excellence of remarkable staff and countless volunteers. Simply put, I cannot imagine our region without the IWK.
