The Hospital Celebrates the Opening of the Volunteer Services Centre for Medical Imaging


On December 2, 2010, North York General Hospital cut the ribbon on the Hospital’s new Volunteer Services Centre for Medical Imaging. The opening gave us an opportunity to thank our group of dedicated volunteers whose hard work and commitment provide a superior experience for our many patients requiring the best medical imaging experience.

The construction of the Centre was made possible by Volunteer Services’ $3 million commitment. The opening of the Centre was the culmination of years of hard work by the Hospital’s hundreds of volunteers. It is also a testament to the major impact that our supporters can make when many donors come together to create a significant contribution.

“I can’t thank our Volunteer Services team enough for their vision and commitment to Medical Imaging,” said Dr. Elizabeth LaMere, Chief Radiologist and Medical Director of Medical Imaging at NYGH. “Your help has provided our patients, families and staff with a pleasant environment. It’s a humbling experience to witness the years of commitment of service of our volunteers.”

Our volunteers are on the front lines every day, helping patients and families navigate the often-stressful experience of being in a hospital. The new Volunteer Services Centre for Medical Imaging is a perfect tribute to the longtime dedication of our volunteers, and will inspire others for generations to come.
