“NYGH left a lasting impression”

You never know where inspiration will spring from. For Daisy Chan, hers came when she became a volunteer at North York General Hospital (NYGH) while she was in high school. The time she spent at NYGH convinced her that she wanted to work in health care in some capacity in the future. Now an Inpatient Pharmacist, she works in different areas of the hospital, mostly in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and Paediatrics.

Caring mentors made a world of difference.

Daisy has worked for NYGH for 8 years and considers herself fortunate to work in such a patient-centred hospital. Her volunteer experiences with caring mentors truly motivated her. She learned so much along the way and feels it is what led her to pursue a career as a pharmacist.

NYGH allows everyone to learn and grow.

What separates NYGH from other health care facilities, in Daisy’s opinion, is the professional and compassionate way patients and families are cared for, as well as the numerous opportunities that exist for staff to learn and grow in their professions.

Daisy’s fondest memory at NYGH was the day she was hired on full-time. Her gratitude and commitment are evident in her loyalty to her work and the patients she cares for.

When she’s not working, Daisy loves to travel and to try new restaurants.

Daisy participates in the NYGH Staff Lottery to give back to the hospital that has given her so much. As a recent winner, she plans on going on a vacation.
