Why give through your will

Michael Garron Hospital is evolving alongside the changing needs of the community we know and love. Leaving a gift in your will to Michael Garron Hospital is a powerful way to shape the future of healthcare in East Toronto.

When you think about your community hospital, what comes to mind?

Maybe you remember the medical team that brought your children safely into the world. Perhaps it was the doctor who took extra time to answer all of your questions. Or you might think of the nurse who was by your side offering compassion during a difficult moment. Maybe you haven’t used the hospital yet, but are reassured there is one close by should you ever need it.

Exceptional care is what folks receive at Michael Garron Hospital every day. For nearly 100 years, we’ve met the healthcare needs of our community.

If healthcare is an important cause to you, leaving a gift in your will to the hospital is one of the best things you can do. It protects the health and well-being of everyone in our community for generations to come.

A gift for the future. A gift in your will.

With a gift in your will, you’re also making sure that Michael Garron Hospital is able to respond to the changing nature of healthcare. The health system you experience today, will not be the system of the future.

Your legacy gift will help us deliver the highest level of care and impact the health and well-being of our community for years to come.

“How we managed, for example, cardiac disease 30 years ago was with a heart bypass. Now it is most often angioplasty.  In another 10 years it will likely evolve again. The hospital must be able to adapt and support evolving care and plan for a healthcare system not just for today, but rather for 10, 20, even 30 years from now.” – Dr. Rajiv K. Singal, Chief of Surgery at Michael Garron Hospital

When you remember Michael Garron Hospital with a gift in your will, you make a lasting gesture of generosity and commitment to your community. Your simple act makes a profound statement. Here’s how:

  • A gift in your will can help Michael Garron Hospital lead the future of acute care by addressing community health needs.
  • Your partnership allows us to embrace digital care and innovations, integrating virtual care and technology to advance much-needed services.
  • Your legacy gift will ensure that we can continue to work closely with more than 50 health and social service organizations to meet the real-world needs of our diverse and vibrant community.

A gift in your will ensures Michael Garron Hospital can evolve and grow with consistency, effectiveness and compassion. Together we can reimagine the patient experience and redefine how we deliver healthcare.
