Dear Everybody,
Together we can.

Message from our leaders

Dear Everybody,

Every day, every year, you make an extraordinary impact.

In the days, weeks, and months of struggle and hardship as we confronted a global pandemic, you proved that together we can. And we’re forever grateful for your continued support and commitment to our kids and families.

Together as a hospital, a team, and a community, we create the conditions for kids and youth with disabilities to have healthy and meaningful futures. Futures where disability and other complex needs are seen as a valued part of diversity. Futures where equity and inclusion are action items – not just words on a page.

CEOs and Board Chairs

And as we provide care, programs and services, we continue to drive forward our commitment to research, teaching and learning that is an equal part of our identity as an academic health sciences centre that is fully affiliated with the University of Toronto.

As you’ll read in our stories this year, we advanced efforts to provide personalized, coordinated care that is firmly focused on the needs of our clients and families. We also embarked on a journey of transformational discovery, with the launch of expansion plans for the Bloorview Research Institute and the completion of an  MRI suite that is state-of-the-art in accessibility and child friendliness – another global first for Holland Bloorview.  Among other stories of impact, you’ll also read about one of the latest successes of our transitions strategy providing new opportunities for young people with disabilities through on-the-ground employment training.

All this work would not have been possible without you – our community of supporters, donors of every level, committed volunteers and dedicated staff.

Thank you for creating a world of possibility. Thank you for being here for us.
