The Ken and Marilyn Thomson Patient Care Centre is being built to meet the healthcare needs of east Toronto. As such, Michael Garron Hospital (MGH) is committed to having ongoing consultation with the public, to ensure that the design of the new facility reflect the needs of the community.
Out and about in the Community
At every step of the planning, design and construction process, Michael Garron Hospital has worked to engage both internal and external stakeholders and gain feedback. One of the ways the hospital and foundation teams engaged local residents in spring/summer 2019 was by participating in nine community events including farmers markets and concert series.
Topics discussed with local residents included:
- Construction progress to date
- Traffic routing
- Upcoming project milestones
- The MGH Foundation’s $100 million dollar Heart of the East campaign
- The Kick the Stigma Soccer Tournament and Heart of the East Community Festival occurring at Monarch Park on September 21, 2019
Overall, face-to-face interactions with community members has helped to promote awareness and build support for the project and provided attendees an opportunity to ask questions.
The final community event the teams will be participating in this summer will be at the East York Farmers Market on September 10, 2019 from 8:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. and the East York Civic Centre. We hope to see you there!
