Inspired by the hospital’s commitment to the community it serves, FDC Foundation wanted to ensure its gift would go even further to advance quality healthcare for all in East Toronto.
Between now and June 30, 2022, FDC Foundation will match, dollar-for-dollar, all new donations made - up to $5 million. As we close in on the final $20 million we need to secure towards the hospital's local share by fall 2022, this inspiring gift is a welcome investment in building momentum for a healthier, stronger East Toronto.
“FDC Foundation’s commitment, and the further generosity it will inspire, is a gift to all we serve and will ensure we can deliver the exceptional care that every person deserves close to home.” Mitze Mourinho, President, Michael Garron Hospital FoundationFDC Foundation’s gift will support our historic redevelopment. Modern, bright, and thoughtfully designed to respond to the community’s needs, this facility will reflect the quality care and warmth that people have long experienced at Michael Garron Hospital. Features will include:
- The replacement of 215 of the existing hospital beds. Eighty percent of the new patient rooms will be single occupancy, enabling patients to heal in privacy and with dignity;
- A new chronic disease unit that will bring together the hospital’s current chest, kidney and Zeena & Farid Amarshi Cardiac Centres into one purpose-built space so that patients with multiple diseases will receive coordinated care; and
- New mental health facilities, including a 44-bed adult mental health inpatient unit and the six-bed Slaight Family Child and Youth Mental Health Inpatient Unit for young people experiencing acute mental health crises.
