"So much has changed. So much more will continue to change. Yet our values stay the same. Our skills, experience and ability to learn stays the same. Our commitment to patients, families and the community stays the same. Our desire to make a world of difference in every interaction stays the same. It is the things that are staying the same as all else changes that will get us through this difficult time."

The Covid19toronto.ca self-assessment tool starts with an online questionnaire designed to assess risk for COVID-19 based on symptoms. Individuals who meet the geographic and symptom criteria (i.e. they live in Toronto), will have the option to conduct a live virtual triage with a registered nurse online.
North York General is pleased to offer patients free online access to their health records with MyChart™.
This is a secure online tool that allows patients to electronically access their medical records from NYGH and over 40 participating hospitals (including Sunnybrook, Michael Garron and Baycrest) across the province.
