UHN's Peter Munk Cardiac Centre is the only centre in Canada – and one of a few in the world – to offer a new outpatient testing procedure as an alternative to open-heart surgery. Patients who need diagnostic testing for unknown entities, such as growths around the heart, typically need an operation just to determine their diagnosis – at an average cost of $6,725. Along with his team, Dr. Patrik Rogalla, Division Head for Cardiovascular and Thoracic Imaging at the Joint Department of Medical Imaging, developed a technique to biopsy masses in and around the heart by manually synchronizing a computerized tomography (CT) scan and fluoroscopy with the electrocardiogram (ECG) to safely collect the sample. The procedure takes an average of 32 minutes and patients typically leave the hospital after a two-hour recovery, in sharp contrast to the average seven days spent in hospital after a surgery to biopsy the heart.

UHN has partnered with the Toronto District School Board and Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital to provide co-op placements for students in their last year of high school to acquire more than 700 hours of hands-on work experience geared to in-demand jobs. Mackenzie Koole, a Project SEARCH graduate who later secured a permanent part-time porter position at the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre, told UHN News “the atmosphere and support from other employees has been amazing."
