Recruitment of Governors

April 9, 2021

North York General Hospital (NYGH) is affiliated with the University of Toronto and one of Canada’s leading community academic hospitals, offering its diverse community a wide range of acute care, ambulatory and long-term care services across multiple sites. Through partnerships, collaboration and academic endeavours, NYGH seeks to set new standards for patient and family centred care. As a learning organization, NYGH is committed to developing its people. It supports each person on their journey to be the best they can be, focusing on delivering excellent patient care and high-quality service.  NYGH recently attained Accreditation Canada’s’ highest level of achievement, Exemplary Standing.

The new NYGH Strategic Plan 2020-2025, Thinking Beyond, was shaped by the input and ideas of thousands of patients, families, staff, physicians, learners, researchers, volunteers, donors, partners, residents, and health system leaders. As a leading academic community hospital in Canada, NYGH is constantly thinking beyond the present to make health care better through knowledge, discovery and training the next generation.

Based on the skills mix of the Board, there is a need for experienced Governors, who have experience in the health care system, individuals who understand clinical and quality leadership and can, at a governance and strategic level, contribute to the high quality of  care and service provided by NYGH. They will have held a career as a senior health care leader, with a strong focus on patient satisfaction and safety, health administration, and/or research, with significant health system knowledge, and can bring these experiences to the role on the Board. While not critical, ideal candidates would be members of the broader NYGH geographic community.
