Our Story

Make a Purchase, Make a Difference®

Giving Blooms is operated by the Hamilton Health Sciences Volunteer Association (HHSVA).  We are a non-profit organization that operates shops and services across the Hamilton Health Sciences (HHS) family of hospitals, including gift shops, cafes, cafeterias, and parking services.

Our mission is to continually support, enhance and advocate for HHS and its volunteers on behalf of patient care. Each year the HHSVA donates millions of dollars to enhance patient care at HHS through the donation of patient equipment, such as surgical devices, diagnostic tools, and wheelchairs, and funding of patient care programs.

We sincerely thank customers like you who make these donations possible. Your purchase truly makes a difference to the patient experience. For more information about HHSVA, click here.


HHSVA Donates Heart Lung Machine - Gold Standard in Cardiac Surgery 

The heart-lung machine, donated by the HHSVA to the Hamilton General Hospital's operating room (OR), is used during cardiac surgery to control the heart's functioning and keep the patient safe. "This machine is the gold standard for best outcomes as it allows for precise surgery and excellent post-operative recovery," explains Perfusionist Andrew Dooley. "Donations like this save lives every day of the year. The VA is part of this life-saving team."
