A Fabulous Evening for Women’s Mental Health Care

A Message from
the Foundation President

North York General Foundation’s mission is to raise and steward funds that enable the Hospital to deliver exceptional health care to our diverse communities. The Foundation Board of Governors provides leadership, help to raise revenue, expand our reach in the community and act as advocates for North York General. We have welcomed several new members to our Board: Cathy Ciccolini, Amir Khashayar, David Schlesinger, Joel Silver, and Andrea Wojnicki. I congratulate our new Governors and look forward to their contributions to NYGH.

The work that we do in support of our Hospital would not be possible without the generosity of our donors. I am proud to share the stories of several philanthropic gifts that have been made to North York General in recent months, which will help to improve the patient experience in our Emergency Department  and upgrade a surgical suite as part of the Operating Rooms of the Future.

Thank you for continuing to support our Hospital in putting patients first in everything we do.
