The Forget for a Moment Foundation confirms project with Montfort’s new Orléans Health Hub

Posted on 09/06/2017

The Forget for a Moment Foundation is proud to announce that the plans and specifications for construction of the Orléans Health Hub in Orléans, (Ontario) will incorporate a living wall in the shape of a Monarch butterfly wing. The Montfort’s Steering Committee approved our project on May 25, 2017.

Currently in the planning phase, the Orléans Health Hub will be a unique and innovative health centre offering a wide range of specialized and community healthcare services under one roof. Once the Hub is completed, the residents of Ottawa East, from newborns to seniors, will benefit from integrated programs that are close to home, focused on their needs and offered in both official languages.

We are convinced that this living wall will be a valuable addition to the Orléans Health Hub and that all those who see it will appreciate not only its beauty but also the ability of nature to soothe.

Below is a representative illustration of the living wall. However, modifications may occur in terms of colours and plants used.
