HealthCareCAN, the national voice of health organizations and hospitals across Canada, is very pleased to see our member, UHN’s Toronto General Hospital, recognized by Newsweek as one of the world’s best hospitals for its outstanding transplant program.
“None of this would be possible without the support of the Government of Ontario, the Government of Canada through the Tri-Councils, and especially our Foundations and donors who support our drive to excellence.”
– Kevin Smith, President & CEO, UHN
“It goes to show that with the right funding and support, Canada can indeed be a global leader in health and health innovation” says Paul-Émile Cloutier, President & CEO of HealthCareCAN, “Toronto General just proved that, we are deeply proud of them, and of all our members working hard to develop new innovations each and every day.” he added.
Ensuring Canada’s hospitals and other healthcare organizations are able to continue their mission to innovate and transform health in Canada is a fundamental part of HealthCareCAN’s work. That is why we highlighted the fact that while the recently released federal budget provided some much-needed funding support for health and health research, Canadians need more from their federal government. Canadians need sustained federal leadership and strategic action to support innovation and transformation in health.
“Funding health research and innovation is critical in strengthening our economy.” says Mr. Cloutier, “Without strategic investment, it’s not just the health of Canadians that suffers, but every industry that depends on a thriving health system to survive.”
Toronto General Hospital, was recognized alongside the Mayo Clinic, Cleveland Clinic and others as among the 10 best hospitals in the world in Newsweek’s global ranking.
