2016 physicians’ campaign

North York General Hospital’s dedicated physicians are going beyond care each and every day for our patients and their families.

But did you know that, beyond the medical and emotional support they provide for our patients, many of North York General’s physicians also support patients by donating to our hospital’s most urgent needs?

Funds raised through the North York General Foundation’s annual Physicians’ Campaign help bring the most advanced technologies, education and research to our hospital. Not only does it help give physicians and staff the tools they need to care for patients, it also supports them on a very personal level. "I support the foundation because the foundation supports us.  The money the foundation raises allows us to continue to provide the best, most advanced care,” says Dr. Everton Gooden, Chief of Staff, Chair of the Medical Advisory Committee and Physicians’ Campaign Co-Chair. “My own family has also benefited from this care and I am eternally grateful.”

Funds generated through the Physicians’ Campaign have been used to purchase state-of-the-art equipment throughout the hospital, including incubators, ultrasound machines, monitors and laparoscopic surgical towers.

Campaign Co-Chairs Dr. Delia Curea, Dr. Harvey Blankenstein and the aforementioned Dr. Gooden, hope to build on the momentum of the incredible $321,000 raised by physicians last year, by raising even more during the 2016 campaign.

Dr. Blankenstein cites the physicians’ engagement in the campaign as reinforcement of our hospital’s strong culture of philanthropy. “As physicians, we are committed to our hospital and supporting our colleagues in the work that they do,” he says. “Our commitment to the campaign demonstrates that we wholeheartedly believe in this organization.”

At North York General Foundation we are privileged to work with such dedicated physicians who truly go beyond care for our patients and their families.

All of North York General’s physicians, staff and volunteers work tirelessly to help patients and their families. If you’ve experienced great care at North York General, consider honouring that care with a Say Thanks gift in their honour.
