Mr. Ross Little, Research security guard for many years, passed away February 21, 2015.

Dubbed “Captain Ross” by Dr. Naranjan Dhalla, Little was awarded the Jack Litvack Exemplary Service Award in September, 1999 for his dedication to service and excellence to the Institute of Cardiovascular Sciences. His memory for names was legendary, as he would greet all Research staff by name with a friendly “Good Morning”.

Ross was predeceased by his parents Lloyd W. Little and Jane B. Little and his sister Barbara E. Hurdle. He is survived by his sister Lois (Melvin) Hurdle, nieces Debbie (Jason) Kolaski, Wendy (Ron) Haynes, great nieces Melissa and Krystin Coyle, Jadyn Kolaski, Lisa and Stephanie Haynes and great nephew Matthew Haynes.

Viewing will be held on Friday March 6, 2015 at Chapel Lawn from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. A celebration of Ross’ life will be held at 2:00 p.m. Saturday March 7, 2015 at Chapel Lawn Funeral Home, 4000 Portage Ave. Winnipeg.

Hope and Healing
Introduction
First there was the St. Boniface Hospital, then there was the St. Boniface Hospital Foundation, and then came St. Boniface Hospital Research - which has evolved into a research campus that includes the Sakharov MRI Centre and the I.H. Asper Clinical Research Institute.

Together they create and maintain a tradition of excellence in medical care, education, and research.

The St. Boniface Hospital is Western Canada's first hospital. It was founded in 1871 by the Grey Nuns, a religious congregation inspired by Mother Marguerite D'Youville. The Mission, Aims and Objectives of the Hospital were then, as they are now:
  • To provide the highest quality of care to its patients and of service to its community
  • To participate in the education of personnel
  • To promote research for the improvement of patient care
The St. Boniface Hospital Foundation was established in 1971 as part of the centennial celebrations of the Hospital. The Foundation acts as the primary fund-raising body for the St. Boniface Hospital Inc., and promotes excellence in health care research related to the prevention and treatment of disease, the promotion of good health, and improvements in patient care. All with the overriding objective of improving individual quality of life and respecting the individual.

St. Boniface Hospital Research is a result of the emphasis that both the Hospital and Foundation place on medical research.
