StayWell is here to help the many Canadians who cannot afford accommodations during medical treatment.See Our Work
StayWell is a registered charity with the goal of changing the landscape of medical stays in Canada. Our primary mission is to remove a major financial barrier to life-saving treatments that are only offered in large city centers.
Founded in 2018, StayWell was inspired by the story of Tina Proulx, a woman who faced financial hurdles to receiving her life-saving, double lung transplant in Toronto, far from her home in the suburbs of Ottawa. Matthew Regush and Steven Argyris were made aware of Tina’s plight when Tina’s family inquired about furnished accommodations with Sky View Suites in the fall of 2015.
Together, the team is dedicated to making a material impact on the lives of patients who cannot afford accommodations while receiving the specialized care that is only available in Toronto.
Upon learning more about Tina’s story and this systemic problem in the health care system, Matt and Steven, along with the Sky View team, set out to make a change.
As the vision evolved from concept to reality, Matt and Steven enlisted the expertise and shared passion of Sass Khazzam, Stefan Weldishofer, and Matthew Kissoondass to form what is now StayWell.
Together, the team is dedicated to making a material impact on the lives of patients who cannot afford accommodations while receiving the specialized care that is only available in large city centers.
