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.
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.
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.
In these times of uncertainty and shifting priorities for many of us, you can be assured that some things remain ever constant. The first is this hospital’s utmost commitment to the effective and safe care of our community, our staff, our patients and our families.

The first thing I’d like to address is this hospital’s utmost commitment to the compassionate, effective and safe care of our community, our staff, our patients and our families.
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.
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.
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.
After a terrific summer filled with extensive planning and anticipation – the day finally arrived. On September 4th, after many years in the making, we officially opened Phillips House, the new home of North York General’s child and adolescent outpatient mental health programs.
Our first floor is a hub of activity, as construction crews work to complete important renovations that will update and refresh a number of our outpatient clinics, patient registration/check-in and public areas for our patients, families and staff.
