Supporting Excellence in Patient care
North York General Hospital provides expert, compassionate family and patient-focused care to your community.
North York General is affiliated with the University of Toronto and is one of Canada’s leading community academic hospitals. Serving 500,000 people in the Greater Toronto Area, North York General provides a wide range of care services across three sites. Our areas of clinical excellence include emergency services, surgery, family and community medicine, cancer care, maternal newborn, child and teen, mental health, elder care, general medicine and genetics.
The Masters Golf Tournament has raised over $4.8 million in support of North York General’s Cancer Care Program and The Freeman Centre for the Advancement of Palliative Care.
Our Cancer Care Program is one of the largest in the GTA, and is known for providing the highest standards of patient- and family-centred cancer care through screening, diagnosis, treatment and follow-up. The Freeman Centre for the Advancement of Palliative Care offers a unique and innovative model of care that provides support for patients in their homes and appropriate inpatient care. This year, your support of the Masters Golf Tournament will help us purchase some of the most highly used pieces of equipment in these areas of care – chemotherapy recliners for our cancer patients and new specialized hospital beds for palliative care.
Chemotherapy recliners – a new standard of comfort.
Our Chemotherapy Clinic treats an average of 40 patients each day, equating to over 17,000 visits to the Clinic every year. Our patients deserve to have the best possible experience during this difficult time in their treatments. We have an immediate need to replace the existing chemotherapy chairs and order a fleet of 20 new recliners that are designed with patient comfort and safety in mind.
You can help bring comfort and care to our cancer patients.
Hospital beds – a vital part of treatment and the epicenter of care.
Beds across our hospital are approaching the point at which they must be replaced. We have an immediate need to replace the six specialized care beds for inpatients in the Freeman Centre for the Advancement of Palliative Care. The new beds have enhanced comfort features that help remove heat and moisture, and safety features that prevent pressure ulcers by redistributing pressure. With the highest standard of infection control, the new beds will help protect our sickest patients’ fragile immune systems.
We're relying on your support to help make our patients safe and comfortable when they need it the most.
