Job Description

Michael Garron Hospital is a true general hospital providing care from birth to end-of-life and serving 400,000 people in East Toronto. We deliver first-rate care on a first-name basis - 90 per cent of the health-care people need, at a level of excellence rivalling anywhere else in the city. We also excel in developing tomorrow’s health-care leaders, with the largest community and family medicine teaching program affiliated with the University of Toronto.       

Michael Garron Hospital’s catchment area is unique in Toronto and one of the most diverse in Canada. Forty percent of the people we care for are new Canadians. One quarter of our catchment is low income and we are home to the highest proportion of refugees in the city of Toronto. More seniors live alone here than anywhere else in the city. Poverty and isolation—two of the most critical social determinants of health—affect people in our neighbourhoods disproportionately.  

In 2018, Michael Garron Hospital Foundation embarked on the public phase of the Heart of the East Campaign, our $100-million fundraising effort in support of our $500-million redevelopment project. Raising over $89-million to-date, the Heart of the East will completely transform our campus, including construction of the new, eight-storey Ken and Marilyn Thomson Patient Care Centre and the dramatic redevelopment of our existing facility. Join our team to help us equip Michael Garron Hospital to meet the needs of our growing city and our diverse, often under-served community.

Currently we have an exciting opportunity for an individual who wants to advance their career as a
