Plus, you’ll beam with pride for the visibility we bring to your brand as we work to support the hundreds of thousands of people who rely on our hospital.

Tickling funny bones is our specialty

Great care inspired by community

At Michael Garron Hospital, we care for people during the most significant and challenging moments in their lives: from the birth of a child to the death of a loved one, and everything in between.

Our hospital serves 400,000 people in East Toronto, one of Canada’s most diverse communities, as well as people throughout the city who seek our skills and expertise. We treat each person who comes through our doors like a neighbour and we’ve done so for nearly 100 years.
