Welcome & Overview

A message from Wolf Klassen, Michael Garron Hospital President & Chief Executive Officer (Interim)

On behalf of our entire team, I would like to welcome you and your family to Michael Garron Hospital. We understand this may be a difficult time for you and your family, and our staff, physicians and volunteers are committed to ensuring that you have a positive experience. Our goal is to support you in returning to the comfort and safety of your home as soon as possible.

You will likely have many questions about your care and hospital stay, which our Patient and Family Guide may help to answer. If you wish to speak to someone about your hospital stay, you can talk to a member of your care team, the manager on your unit, or the Patient Relations department.

Since 1929, Michael Garron Hospital has been the hospital of choice for the people of East Toronto. Our teams provide high-quality care for everyone who walks through our doors. We have been here to care for you and your loved ones during all stages of life; from delivering babies, caring for children during their formative years, to providing emergency, mental health or surgical services, and enhancing quality of life and providing pain relief for people with life-limiting illnesses.

As we embark on the construction of our new Ken and Marilyn Thomson Patient Care Centre, our modernized facility and hospital campus will match the exceptional care we provide for generations to come.

Your comments and suggestions are important to us. We encourage you to give us feedback that will help us understand how we can make your visit to Michael Garron Hospital as comfortable as possible.
