John and Myrna Daniels Foundation is making a major investment into what knowledge can do for health care with an incredible $20-million gift to University Health Network (UHN).

The gift will support three world-leading programs at UHN: Peter Munk Cardiac Centre, the Krembil Neuroscience Centre and the Multi-Organ Transplant Program.

"John and Myrna Daniels have been long-time supporters of UHN and over the years they have learned how UHN is a driver of medical innovation," says Tennys Hanson, President and CEO of Toronto General & Western Hospital Foundation.

"We are honoured that John and Myrna Daniels Foundation is helping us pursue the knowledge that makes all our lives better."

Each of these programs has a rich history of excellence and world ­firsts that have changed the landscape of healthcare here and around the globe. This gift, which includes facility upgrades and research, will make sure that UHN can continue to make an impact on patients' lives.

Building communities and improving the quality of life of others is a core focus for John and Myrna Daniels Foundation.

"For philanthropists John and Myrna Daniels, giving back to the community that has been so good to them is a way of life," says Jim Aird, a spokesperson for John and Myrna Daniels Foundation.

"The Foundation is proud to make this substantial donation to help advance the face of health care in our local community, in Canada and around the globe."​
