Atrium at the facility has been named after Canadiens’ superstar defenceman.
The hospital has named its atrium in honour of P.K. Subban, after the Canadiens defenceman made what the health-care facility described as “the biggest philanthropic commitment by a sports figure in Canadian history.”
The $10 million from the hockey player’s foundation, paid out over seven years, will be used in part for a fund called P.K.’s Helping Hands, which will help families struggling financially with a child’s illness.
Subban has been quietly visiting children at the hospital for the past few months, Martine Alfonso, the associate executive director of the Montreal Children’s Hospital said.
