Dear Friends, As the third week of working from home (#WFH) presses on, I have figured out how to (mostly) flawlessly log onto “Teams” for video conferencing and (mostly) remember when I am not on mute.

COVID-19 Updates: Message from the President

Dear Friends, I am still working from my kitchen table although I confess to have occasionally moved to the couch, with my laptop precariously perched on a pillow.

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.

COVID-19 Updates: Message from the President

Dear Friends, I am writing to you from my kitchen table, as we made the sensible decision to move the Foundation operations to a remote mode.

Last year was one of tremendous renewal and growth. We saw the opening of many new outpatient clinics to better serve the needs of our diverse and growing community.

Message from the President

The holiday season is the perfect time to pause and reflect on the special role North York General plays in our community. Our physicians, nurses and staff are entrusted with the compassionate care of nearly 400,000 individuals, each with their unique health care needs.

Message from the President

We’re a community hospital.  To me, that means more than only caring for the community – we’re part of the community. I truly felt that sentiment this past Saturday as we hosted our second Rally in the Ravine.
