Humber River Hospital. Lighting New Ways In Healthcare.
Humber River Hospital (HRH) 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. HRH 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 RCC represent a unique partnership among multiple hospitals in the GTA with a focus on high quality patient recovery. A 356-bed Long Term care facility “Humber Meadows” is currently under construction at the 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 Western 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 membership in the Toronto Academic Health Sciences Network (TAHSN).
As an associate member of TAHSN, Humber River Hospital provides many academic opportunities to all professions. We are committed to establishing a Family Practice Teaching Unit in partnership with the University of Toronto within the year, further strengthening our commitment to academia. The Hospital has formal affiliations with medical schools at University of Toronto and Queen’s University.
HRH has a strong emphasis on quality, safety, and the patient and family experience. In 2018, HRH received Exemplary Standing from Accreditation Canada. HRH also recently received the Studer Group Award for Excellence in Canadian Patient Care and the Canadian Council of Health Service Executives Patient Safety Award.
The Hospital has developed short and long-term objectives outlined in the 2021-23 Strategic Plan with a core direction of advancing HRH as a community academic hospital. Examples include:
- Growing targeted specialty programs that are responsive to the needs of our community
- Establishing an HRH Digital Healthcare Research Institute
- Continuing to shepherd the development of a long-term care facility
- Establishing a comprehensive Medical Education Program
