“As the honorary chair of the Campaign for Women’s College Hospital, I have chosen to back an institution that every day makes a difference in the lives of Canadian women. Women’s College Hospital is built on a rich tradition and a compelling vision. It is leading the way in both securing a healthy future for women and their families, and providing more efficient, innovative care directly to our community.

As leaders of the campaign, we are tasked with the goal of helping to raise $70 million, and to achieve this we need to tell Women’s College Hospital’s story – about the incredible people and this incredible place – one that resonates in the hearts and minds of our community. I need your help. But more importantly, Women’s College Hospital needs your help. Because working together, we will deliver a new kind of thinking about women, their medicine, their health care and their hospital.”

“Women’s College Hospital is iconic, not only because of its longstanding physical presence in our community, but most importantly because of the vital care it has provided to women and their families for well over a century. Once again, Women’s College is reinventing itself to meet the evolving health-care needs of the people it serves. The vision is both evolutionary and revolutionary and very exciting.

As a business leader and chair of The Campaign for Women’s College Hospital, I am dedicated to the investment in realizing this vision. Our mothers, sisters, daughters, colleagues and friends will benefit as this remarkable hospital establishes, yet again, best practices to meet the challenges of sustainable, quality public health care and the needs of women.”
