Geriatrician

Humber River Hospital is one of Canada’s largest acute care hospitals, fully digital, and serving a diverse catchment area of more than 850,000 people in the northwest Greater Toronto Area.  HRH operates 722 acute inpatient beds with 3,400 staff, approximately 700 physicians, and over 1,000 volunteers. The Humber River Hospital currently includes the Wilson site, a 656-bed full service acute care facility that opened in 2015 and the Finch and Church sites, known as the "Reactivation Centres (RCC)". The RCCs represent a unique partnership among multiple hospitals in the GTA with a focus on high quality patient recovery as well as housing a community COVID-19 assessment centre. A 356 bed Long Term care facility “Humber Meadows” is currently under construction at our Finch Avenue site.  Our vision of Exceptional Care, Healthier Community and our focus on equity and inclusivity is something we share with our partners at the North West Toronto Ontario Health Team. 

As Canada’s first digital hospital and home of the first Patient Care Digital Command Centre, a commitment to innovation, research and academic excellence remains at the core of our organization. We look forward to further development of these core elements through our recent membership in the Toronto Academic Health Sciences Network (TAHSN). Already providing many academic opportunities to all professions, we are committed to establishing a Family Practice Teaching Unit in partnership with University of Toronto in the next year, further strengthening our commitment to academia. 

Humber River Hospital has a strong emphasis on quality, safety, and the patient and family experience. In 2018, HRH received Exemplary Standing from Accreditation Canada. This past year HRH received the Studer Group Award for Excellence in Canadian Patient Care and the Canadian Council of Health Service Executives Patient Safety Award.
