Phillips House and NYGH: Meeting the mental health care of our children and youth

As dedicated supporters of youth mental health care in our community, I wanted to share some insights on how services were continuing and being managed during this COVID crisis. I was so pleased and comforted to hear how our staff and physicians have adapted to care for our children.

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.

Naomi’s story

My name is Naomi Wong and I have been a Patient and Family Advisor at North York General for two years, but my connection with the hospital began 22 years ago when I was brought into the world. My great-grandmother was among the first of my relatives to hold me. On this Family Day, I want to share with you the story of my great-grandmother’s last day with us.

In good hands

While on vacation in Florida, I received a call from the Graham & Audrey Rosenberg Family Cardiac Care Clinic. A nurse told me that my mother wasn’t doing well and explained her symptoms. I knew I had to come home.

Keeping pace with life

I had been falling occasionally over several years. I had no idea what was causing it. I just simply fell, and at 90 plus years old, you can imagine the risk of serious injury.
