A Holiday Message from The Chair of the Foundation
Greetings and Happy Holidays! I am pleased to have the opportunity to wish you the best this season and share with you some reflections on the meaning of care at North York General.
As we gather with family and friends this month, many of us will recall needing health care services at times over the year, whether for an illness or simply a broken bone. But at North York General, care is not limited to the treatments and procedures provided at our Hospital. It spans a spectrum of individuals, organizations and partners across our entire community.
From the holistic services provided through the Integrated Care Collaborative at our Breast Diagnostic Centre, to the pioneering model bridging in-hospital and at-home palliative care from our Freeman Centre, to the regional experts providing specialized counselling and primary physical care to those with mental illnesses, North York General truly cares for our patients and their families beyond their medical needs.
Thanks to the doctors, nurses and staff at NYGH and our community partners, your family and neighbours have benefited from that exceptional care this year, and will continue to receive it in 2014. In order to keep improving our patient experience and respond to emerging needs, we need your support – and the holiday season is the perfect time to give.
By making a gift now to our Campaign, you will be helping us to make a world of difference to thousands of others all year round.
Thank you for your continuing commitment to our Hospital and our community.
