Daisy Chan is our March 12th Staff Lottery winner. She has been working as a Pharmacist at North York General for over 6 years. She was inspired to participate in our Fortune Fridays 50/50 Staff Lottery because it is a great way to support the hospital and it gave her the opportunity to be one of the lucky winners!
It has been a while since I have been in touch, but I wanted to wait for the right time and provide an update on our 2021 so far. Every time I put fingers to keys, something significant happened related to lockdowns, variants, deaths, vaccines or infection rate, and I just couldn’t bring myself to write. This week, we were buoyed by the increase in vaccine availability but still face the reality of the variant spread and the growing, real threat of a third wave.
As we celebrate International Women’s Day, we are shining a spotlight on some of the inspiring women of North York General Hospital (NYGH). These women are blazing trails and charting new courses for generations of women to come while transforming healthcare that will benefit thousands of patients in our community and beyond. We’re proud to count them among our hospital family and grateful for all they do to champion exceptional care. Learn more about them below. #NorthYorkGeneralStrong.
North York General is powered by a dedicated and compassionate staff who care for patients as they would their own families. Our Fortune Friday 50/50 Staff Lottery is a chance for staff to give back in support of the hospital’s greatest needs while having a chance to win.
