Message from the President: The opening of the Steinberg Family Paediatric Centre

I am so pleased to share with you a good news story. Today, the new Steinberg Family Paediatric Centre, gracing the 4thfloor of our hospital at the corner of Leslie and Sheppard, opened to patients, families and staff. The finishing touches were put on the Centre over the weekend and patients were transported this morning from the 3rd floor, up to the amazing new purpose-built space.

Gerald’s Story

In late February and early March, my wife had falls on two different occasions, and after the second one, she was advised to go to the Charlotte & Lewis Steinberg Emergency at North York General Hospital (NYGH), where she tested positive for COVID-19.

If you’ve ever had to take a child to the hospital – your own, a niece, a nephew – chances are you were scared. Maybe you didn’t know what to expect, or feared that your child wouldn’t understand what was going on. Maybe you were anxious yourself, and didn’t know how to explain the situation.

Mrs. Tan’s Story

In May, I experienced an exceptionally painful stomach ache. Concerned, I called my family doctor, who advised me to go to the hospital immediately because my symptoms were similar to those of COVID-19.
