An announcement from Wolf Klassen, President and CEO, Interim, MGH

I am writing to announce that Mark Fam is stepping down as Vice President (VP), Clinical Programs at Michael Garron Hospital (MGH) to take on the new and exciting role of President at St. Mary’s General Hospital in Kitchener on February 6, 2023. Mark will remain in his role at MGH until February 3, 2023.

Mark joined MGH as VP, Clinical Programs four years ago. His inspiring determination and passion for finding creative and innovative solutions to increasingly complex healthcare challenges, made a tremendous and long-lasting impact on our community, both inside and outside of our walls – especially as we navigated the COVID-19 health crisis.

Mark was instrumental in not only growing MGH’s acute care services to meet the evolving needs of patients and families, his commitment to collaboration with East Toronto Health Partners contributed to a significant growth in much-needed health and social services in our community. Here are a few impressive highlights from Mark’s time at MGH:

We are incredibly grateful for Mark’s leadership, drive, determination and systems thinking that he demonstrated over the past four years. While we are sad to see him leave MGH, we know his experience, expertise and knowledge as a visionary healthcare leader will make a profound impact in his new position at St. Mary’s General Hospital.

Please join me in congratulating Mark on his new appointment!

With gratitude,


Wolf Klassen
President and CEO, Interim
Michael Garron Hospital
