Kata Mrazovac

A sense of belonging

In her 27-year career at North York General Hospital (NYGH), Kata Mrazovac feels the most rewarding aspect has been the work atmosphere. She has had the privilege of working with a very compassionate, caring and supportive group of professionals that not only go the extra mile to ensure quality care for our patients, but also ensure collegial support and teamwork.

By getting to know so many kind and supportive individuals at NYGH, she has developed a sense of belonging and she always thinks of her colleagues as her work family.

Providing the best in cancer care

Kata currently works as a Registered Nurse in the cancer care program in the palliative care clinic at the Freeman Centre for the Advancement of Palliative Care and the Baruch/Weisz Cancer Centre oncology/hematology clinic. Her role involves direct patient care from assessment (in person or virtual), medication administration, critical thinking, clear and concise rapport and constant communication with inter professional teams with the ultimate goal of providing safe and quality patient care.

Constantly learning and improving

Kata agrees that NYGH is constantly striving for excellence and is a leading community academic hospital. The hospital’s patient and family centered approach definitely aligns with her own values and beliefs, which further motivates her to do what she does every day. Furthermore, access to training and great educators ensure Kata’s skills are up to date, making her feel even more privileged to be a member of the organization.

Giving back is important

Kata is a recent winner of the staff lottery and takes part in it because it gives her the chance to actively support her hospital. Outside of her work life, Kata loves spending time with family and friends – she plans on using some of her winnings to travel overseas to visit her elderly mother who she does not see often enough.
