Message from the President

It is hard to believe that door to door fundraising helped establish North York General in 1963, five years before the hospital opened in 1968. While the ways of donating to your hospital has changed over the last 50 years, the purpose of community funds has always been about improving the care for families of North York. The next half century will be about meeting the needs of a growing North York and many other patients in the GTA who choose our hospital.

As part of our ongoing efforts to recognize the extraordinary work being done at North York General, we released ‘’Revolutionizing Breast Cancer Care‘ in select Post City Magazines at the beginning of May. This publication, the fourth in our series following ‘Physicians of North York’, ‘Women of North York’, and ‘Partners of North York’ highlights the difference partnerships can have on philanthropy and volunteerism for North York General.

With warm wishes,

Terry Pursell
