North York General Hospital (NYGH) has released its Year in Review for 2021-2022.
The report highlights just some of the incredible things NYGH accomplished last year as we continued to face daunting challenges and a system and workforce under tremendous strain.
The report recounts stories of compassionate care, clinical excellence, camaraderie and changed lives.
It celebrates the progress made on our five-year Strategic Plan, Thinking Beyond. Here are just some of these moments:
- As part of our commitment to put people first, we launched an equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI) framework, which will guide our work to ensure a safe, respectful and inclusive environment for everyone. We also took action to combat Anti-Black Racism and to promote 2SLGBTQIA+ inclusion.
- To drive the future of integrated care, our Ontario Health Team, North York Toronto Health Partners advanced services to meet community needs. Through our Digital Health Strategy, many thousands of people have been supported to manage their health virtually and health professionals are better able to connect patients to the services they need.
- As an exceptional learning community, NYGH has more Family Medicine faculty than any other University of Toronto site and its researchers are leading ground-breaking work that is influencing health care across Canada.
- As part of our investment in a better tomorrow, we announced the largest capital expansion since opening over 50 years ago. We are moving ahead with our leading-edge New Patient Care Tower and plans to build a 384-bed long-term care home steps from the hospital. The home will be at the heart of a transformational Campus of Care for seniors and the community.
It is because of the talents, effort and commitment of our staff, physicians, learners, volunteers, Foundation and donors that Newsweek ranked NYGH the number one community hospital in Canada in 2022 for the fourth year in a row time and we were named among Canada’s Best Employers 2022 by Forbes. We are also deeply grateful to North York Toronto Health Partners (NYTHP), community and government partners for another year of strong collaboration.
As we move past the crisis phase of the pandemic, we will continue thinking beyond—beyond the ordinary, beyond our walls, and beyond today. Thank you to our wonderful team, community and the patients and families we have the privilege of serving.
