Diversity and Interpretation Services

North York General Hospital values the diverse community of over 400,000 residents we serve in north central Toronto and beyond. We embrace diversity by creating and supporting a health care environment that is inclusive.

We understand the health needs of each patient and family we serve are influenced by their individual practices and traditions.

The concept of diversity encompasses acceptance and respect. It means understanding that each individual is unique, and celebrating our individual differences. These differences can be along the dimensions of race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, physical and mental health, religious and other ideologies.

Diversity is the exploration of these differences in a safe, positive and nurturing environment. It is about understanding each other. It is moving beyond tolerance to embracing and celebrating the rich dimensions of diversity within each individual.
