North York General’s Commitment to Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion
In 2020, North York General introduced a bold new five-year Strategic Plan, Thinking Beyond, to guide how NYGH will modernize our services and meet the needs of our diverse and growing communities. Informed by input from our team, patients, residents, communities and partners, NYGH identified Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) as one of its priorities in support of our Strategic Direction, People Come First in Everything We Do.
North York General Announces Largest Expansion in 50+ Years
Investing in a Better Tomorrow is a key direction in NYGH’s Strategic Plan, Thinking Beyond. Central to this is transforming and expanding our buildings to ensure our growing community has access to the highest quality of care delivered within modern healing environments.
NYGH’s Digital Health Strategy Empowering People, Transforming Health
The pandemic has changed every aspect of our lives – including how we access health care services and interact with providers. North York General Hospital’s Digital Health Strategy embraces cutting-edge technologies to empower patients to access care and support from the comfort and convenience of home or wherever they are. This five-year strategy is guiding our hospital’s digital priorities in partnership with our Ontario Health Team, North York Toronto Health Partners.
Simulated Training Prepares Clinicians and Learners for Real Life
You arrive outside a patient’s room and put on your personal protective equipment. As you enter the room and say, “Good morning”, you only hear a faint moan. You try to rouse the patient, but you notice they aren’t responding. Over the last three days, the patient has been experiencing fluctuations in their blood sugars and was diagnosed with a bladder infection requiring antibiotics. What do you do next?

In this situation, the patient is a manikin. And this is an example of simulation training. 
Why is NYGH such a special workplace?
At NYGH, putting people first starts with providing the highest standard of care and meeting each person’s unique needs – including those who work at NYGH. That’s why NYGH has been named one of Canada’s Best Employers by Forbes in 2022 and recently ranked Top Community Academic Hospital in Canada by Newsweek Magazine for the fourth year.
