Going Beyond Care

Introducing our 2017 Report to the Community!

Click on the image above to see North York General Foundation’s 2017 Report to the Community. What you find when you open it will be far from a typical report. 

This year, we decided to feature the work of the Foundation through some of the Women of North York who have helped to shape North York General Hospital. Though many, many women deserved to be in this publication, we could only share 10 stories to represent the numerous ways women are transforming our hospital.  We look forward to sharing the inspiring stories of supporters that have made North York General the hospital it is today in the months ahead. 

As you read this report, we hope that you are reminded of the important role you play in making North York General Hospital a centre of excellence, right in your own backyard.

Behind-The-Scenes Video

Among the shortest emergency wait times in Toronto, recognized by Cancer Care Ontario for the shortest surgical wait times for three years in a row (time from decision to treat, to treatment), and home to internationally recognized programs and expert physicians, North York General Hospital (NYGH) is revolutionizing health care in our city — right here in your own backyard.

At North York General, our physicians, staff and volunteers have earned a reputation for Going Beyond Care. From the gentle squeeze of a hand at a time of uncertainty to sharing tears of happiness as a patient prepares to return home, we care for each of our patients and their families.

Our passion for patient care goes far beyond bedside manner. Behind the scenes, a talented group of researchers, physicians and capital planners are going beyond care to create a better hospital experience for all of our patients. To achieve this, we spearheaded the $150 million Campaign for North York General to provide our patients with the best care today, and drive the health innovations of tomorrow.

We are inspired by the generous support our community has shown us, and know that we can count on you to help us see our vision through and complete our campaign. With your help, North York General will continue to challenge the status quo and secure our reputation as health care innovators and leaders.

Going Beyond Care is what we do at North York General – but we couldn’t do it without you.
