A New Major Campaign in support of Toronto Western Hospital’s New Surgical Tower

 

World-leading surgical teams within the Sprott Department of Surgery at Toronto Western perform many of the most technically complex surgeries — often unavailable elsewhere — relating to cancer, emergency and acute care, the abdomen and urology, the brain and nervous system, bones and muscles, the eyes, and much more.

 

As one of the highest-ranking hospitals across the country, with international-level expertise, Toronto Western is well-positioned to build a new surgical tower, equipped with the most advanced operating rooms, an exceptional patient-centred experience and a culture of surgical innovation, powered by the latest technology.  More than bricks and mortar, the Surgical Tower will foster a culture of innovation, collaboration, and continuous improvement, where everyone, from physician to patient, is empowered to improve the patient journey and advance the way we deliver care.

 

The new Surgical Tower is a top priority for UHN and will positively impact every aspect of care at the hospital.  UHN Foundation will be launching a $300 million major gift fundraising campaign in support of a 15-store surgical tower that will allow for a new era of technologically advanced, integrated, patient-centred care.
