Read our joint Annual Report 2022-2023 – Message from Melanie Kohn and Mitze Mourinho

We are pleased to share our joint annual report for 2022/23, which reflects on a number of incredible milestones we achieved together this year.

Among many highlights, we welcomed the community into the Ken and Marilyn Thomson Patient Care Centre, one of Ontario’s newest healthcare facilities. Amid unprecedented health system challenges and record-breaking volumes exacerbated by the pandemic, we continued to develop and launch innovative programs and services to meet the unique needs of our diverse community.

Our Home Peritoneal Dialysis Program was introduced to allow patients to receive life-changing kidney care in the comfort of their homes. We opened a Women’s Withdrawal Management Services facility at 989 Danforth Ave., the first of its kind in East Toronto. As well, we collaborated with Sunnybrook to launch the Toronto Regional Arthroplasty Collaborative to help reduce provincial wait times for hip and knee joint replacement surgeries.

We also forged innovative partnerships with East Toronto Health Partners, our Ontario Health Team, to meet the needs of our community, closer to home. Our shared accomplishments include:

  • Opening Health Access Taylor-Massey in Crescent Town,
  • Expanding health and social services at Community Outreach Centres in Thorncliffe Park and Flemingdon Park,
  • Offering walk-in bivalent COVID-19 booster clinics, and
  • Launching virtual health, wellness and employment services for youth and young adults at the Thorncliffe Park Youth Wellness Hub, followed by the grand opening of the space this summer

This year also marked the successful close of our Heart of the East Campaign to raise $100 million for our hospital’s transformation. Tens of thousands of donors helped us surpass our goal by an incredible $26 million. Funds raised included a historic donation from Berna and Myron Garron, as well as a transformational gift from Peter and Diana Thomson.

Thanks to our exceptional healthcare teams, volunteers, community members, partners and generous donors. Because of you, Michael Garron Hospital is stronger than ever before.

We want to express our gratitude to each one of you for your remarkable contributions to our hospital and for choosing to make a difference here, in the heart of the east.

With gratitude and appreciation,

Melanie and Mitze
