May 2015 - Montreal Children’s Hospital
In recognition of Ada & Sam Trak’s generous contribution to the new Montreal Children’s Hospital at the MUHC Glen site, one of the 154 single rooms has been named in their honor.
Fall of 2014 - Montreal Children’s Hospital
Article published in the Children's Magazine of the Montreal Children's Hospital Foundation "Fall of 2014" "Room to grow". When the new Montreal Children's Hospital opens its doors at the Glen Site in May 2015, its single-patient rooms will address a long-standing concern of the institution: the proximity of patients with other patients. Gone will be the days when a patient room might have to accommodate as many as three or four sick children.
Having their own room will allow patients greater comfort and intimacy with their families. In practical terms, it means moms and dads will be able to sleep in their child's own hospital room, to watch over and comfort him or her.
Among the very real medical benefits of single-patient rooms: Greater space for bedside medical procedures and a significantly lower risk of germs spreading among patients.
MCH donors appreciate the value of these benefits. None more so, perhaps, than Samir and Ada Trak. The Traks built a successful company from the ground up in 1982, Enertrak Inc., distributor of cooling and heating equipment.
Today, the Traks are using their success to help sick children, committing $100,000 to the new hospital. Samir and his wife Ada were particularly interested in seeing their donated funds go to actual bricks and mortar at the Glen construction site. "The needs across the health system are great", says Ada. "We understand that our donations represent hardly more than a drop in the ocean, but we believe we have a responsibility to the community."
Having raised two daughters of their own, and as the proud grandparents of four, Ada and Samir are particularly sensitive to the welfare of children. "They are the future." For the Traks's generous commitment, one of the 154 single-patient rooms at the new MCH will be named in their honor.
June 2010 - CHUM Foundation
