Pandemic Planning:
How North York General is preparing for a second wave
Unprecedented, uncharted, uncertain - these words have often been used to describe how COVID-19 has impacted Canadians, especially in health care settings. While North York General Hospital (NYGH) has adjusted to its new way of providing care during the pandemic, the one constant has been ensuring staff, physicians, patients, residents and families follow rigorous procedures to help keep everyone safe.

    
Dr. Morant does't miss a beat
Dr. Kareem Morant brings a great deal of expertise and enthusiasm to his role as Director of the Graham & Audrey Rosenberg Family Cardiac Care Clinic at North York General Hospital. Since joining NYGH a little over a year ago, Dr. Morant's vision is grand and his energy infectious.

Dr. Morant is keen to establish North York General as a centre for excellence in all areas of cardiovascular medicine, including heart function specialties and advanced heart failure treatments

 
Patient and Family Advisors: 
Making a world of difference during COVID
While the pandemic has profoundly changed the way care is delivered, it has also reinforced the importance of having the voices of patients and families involved in the decisions North York General Hospital makes about meeting the needs of the community.


When two viruses collide: COVID and influenza
Flu season is around the corner and this year comes with yet another challenge in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic.

In order to reduce the dual impact of these viruses on the population and to avoid an influx of people becoming ill with the flu and coronavirus, Dr. Kevin Katz, Medical Director, Infection Prevention and Control at North York General Hospital, knows it's more important than ever to get the flu shot.
