Message from the President and CEO and Board Chair

Within the pages of our Report Back to the Community, we’ve shared a snapshot of how Osler’s hospitals have provided life-changing care for our patients and the entire community. You’ll read important statistics about our three sites like the increased number of births, surgeries and Emergency Department visits—all of which are astounding.

Behind these numbers is the story of something much greater. Each number in this report represents a page, perhaps a chapter, in the story of someone’s life—your neighbour, your friend, your family member. Maybe you?

In the story of your life, we also know that 80 per cent of the health care that you receive will be in a community hospital. And we know that without the support of you, our donors, the pages of this report would be blank.

Whether it’s a bake sale, sponsorship of one of our signature events, or a multi-year donation—each and every gift is helping to transform the story of someone in our community. Without you, we wouldn’t be talking about how Peel Memorial’s new mammogram machines are helping to catch breast cancer earlier.

Or about how essential new endovascular equipment is going to save more limbs at Brampton Civic. And how vital signs monitors let physicians and staff assess a patient’s condition faster at Etobicoke General, when seconds count.

As we reflect upon the past year, we are left with a profound sense of gratitude. Thank you for your commitment to providing exceptional health care in your community. Thank you for helping to fill the pages of someone’s life story—your gift has truly made a difference.
