North York General Hospital transforms care through applied research and innovation.

This is a time of tremendous opportunity for North York General Hospital. As 80% of hospital care takes place in community hospitals, we are exceptionally well-positioned to test new practices for health care delivery and introduce innovation into the health care system in Ontario.
