Toronto East General opened its doors in 1929 as the first Toronto hospital east of the Don River. It has always been the heart of the east Toronto community, consistently providing excellent care for families dealing with health issues along the full continuum of care, from welcoming a new life to facing end-of-life.
An important new chapter began in December 2015 as Toronto East General became the Michael Garron Hospital (MGH), the keystone of the newly created Toronto East Health Network, in recognition of the generous $50M gift from the Garron family in memory of their son, Michael. The Michael Garron Hospital name is attached to the main campus at 825 Coxwell Avenue providing acute and complex care.
Today, MGH is a large, urban, full-service community teaching hospital, providing comprehensive care to a diverse population of 400,000 living within the community. Annually, MGH admits 20,000 acute care inpatients, delivers 3,000 babies, has nearly 80,000 emergency visits and provides service to over 200,000 outpatients. This is accomplished with the help of 2,500 employees, 400+ physicians and midwives and over 500 adult and student volunteers. In addition to the services offered as a full service general hospital, MGH also has a number of specialty programs and services on site and in the community. MGH has been the recipient of many awards including the Order of Excellence from Excellence Canada, holds exemplary standing with Accreditation Canada and was one of the GTA's Top 100 Employers in 2017.
Within this context, MGH seeks a Vice President, Programs who will play a key role in the ongoing evolution of the organization and the pursuit of its mission and vision. Reporting to the President and CEO, the VP Programs is accountable for the overall leadership, strategic direction, and management of the delivery of high quality clinical services in hospital and for several community-based programs.
