Letter from Samuel Elfassy, Board Chair, North York General Hospital

First responders run towards the problem and help others. With an infection, it is the collaborative response of us all that makes the difference. Our government will provide the necessary institutional responses, but that pales compared to the response we collectively can supply.

Incredible philanthropy helping North York General in the coronavirus fight

I wanted to share the power of a positive story that reflects on the incredible people associated with North York General Hospital’s work around COVID-19 planning. I am referring to The Globe and Mail coverage that sparked a call to me from one of our Foundation Governors minutes after the story was live.
