Dear Colleagues, 

In the last few weeks, we've been busy rolling out the various elements of our new brand. You now have access to the logo and brand book (, as well as an FAQ that will answer most of your questions about using our new identity (
Part of our branding process was to identify what makes UHN unique, and we believe we've done that with our new tagline, Courage Lives Here. I think you'll agree with me that it takes courage to be part of a place like UHN, whether you're a health care professional, a researcher, or a patient. What we do can be difficult and challenging, and I'm proud to lead an organization where people rise to that challenge each and every day, by finding the courage within themselves to face those challenges.

Today, I want to introduce you to a new website that's dedicated to telling stories of courage at UHN. Some of these are stories that you've submitted to me over the past few months as we've been asking for more stories. Others will be familiar to many of you, such as the story of Taylor Binns, recipient of our first "Courage Lives Here" award at this year's AGM.​

I encourage you all to please visit the site at Along with reading our stories of courage, you can nominate someone or share your own story through this site. We'll be updating it frequently with new stories, so bookmark it, share it with your friends and family, and come back often.
In the coming weeks, we'll be announcing a courage contest for staff, so keep your eyes on the Intranet and UHNews for updates. And you can always write to to share your own story of courage.
