North York General Hospital (NYGH) is affiliated with the University of Toronto and is 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 has attained Accreditation Canada’s’ highest level of achievement, Exemplary Standing.
The 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 current skills mix of the Board, there is a need for Governors with expertise in the areas of financial strategy, information technology (privacy and security), and matters of environmental, social, and governance (ESGs). While not critical, ideal candidates would be members of the broader NYGH geographic community. Regardless of the professional competencies, we seek experienced governors who have held or hold board positions in both the private and public sectors.
We have a strong desire to have our Board closely reflect the diverse populations served by the hospital. As a result, we welcome applications from women, racially visible individuals, people with disabilities, Indigenous peoples, and 2SLGBTQIA+ persons. We are committed to providing persons with disabilities with equal opportunities and standards of goods and services, and we are fully compliant with applicable provincial Disabilities Acts.
