A history of giving
Inspired by the exceptional clinicians, scientists and staff at Toronto Western Hospital, Robert and Linda Krembil, with their son Mark and his wife Stacey, have dedicated the power of their philanthropy to building the neuroscience program at University Health Network (UHN) into a world leading clinical and research centre.
In 1998, the family established the Krembil Family Chair in Neurology, which marked the beginning of a long and fruitful relationship with Toronto Western Hospital.
In 2001, the Krembil Neuroscience Centre at Toronto Western Hospital was named in recognition of their unprecedented support.
When approached by the hospital leadership about a long-held dream for a purpose-built research facility, Robert and Linda pledged the lead gift to build the Krembil Discovery Tower. Through the Krembil Foundation, the family has broadened its support to fund research projects in rheumatology, osteoarthritis, stem cell biology and nursing.
In honour of the family's remarkable giving history to Toronto Western Hospital and UHN, the Krembil Research Institute now proudly bears the Krembil name.
