Terry Pursell, President and CEO, North York General Foundation

Message from the President – December 3, 2019

The holiday season is the perfect time to pause and reflect on the special role North York General plays in our community. Our physicians, nurses and staff are entrusted with the compassionate care of nearly 400,000 individuals, each with their unique health care needs. But care is not limited to the treatments and procedures provided at our hospital alone. It spans a spectrum of individuals, organizations and partners across our whole community.

At the Foundation, the holiday season is an opportunity for us to acknowledge the remarkable generosity of our donor community. Everyone has their own reason for giving, whether it’s to say thanks for the care they received or to remember a loved one. But each gift we receive has the power to transform care at our hospital, in our community and beyond. For this we are profoundly grateful.

It is because of our donors that we can serve the dynamic needs of our diverse community. Donors empower our physicians and staff to save lives every day by funding urgently needed equipment and upgrading our facilities. For every patient that receives exceptional care at our hospital, there is a donor with generosity in their heart and the will to improve care in our community.

Wishing you a happy and healthy holiday,

Terry Pursell
