Last week we made the very exciting announcement that Jan Newton has been appointed Vice President and Site Lead for Toronto Western Hospital. Jan has been acting in this role since Kathy Sabo's departure last June, and has done an outstanding job. I am thrilled to see her take this role on permanently and look forward to the great work that lies ahead.
Administrative Professionals Day
We are so fortunate at UHN to have a superstar administrative team, supporting and elevating the work we do throughout the organization. This Wednesday, April 26th is Administrative Professionals Day and an important reminder for all of us to recognize the critical role our administrative team plays. I encourage you to take a moment this week to acknowledge and thank the support staff you work with and would like to express my deepest gratitude to all of UHN's admins for the work you do every day. We truly could not be successful without you.
Patient Experience Week
It's Patient Experience week here at UHN. As an organization with the primary value,
the needs of patients come first, it's important to celebrate and express our appreciation for the programs and individuals that impact the patient experience every day. I encourage you, your teams, patients and caregivers to visit an information booth for a chance to win prizes, have your photo taken and discuss what patient experience means to you. Patients and caregivers will also be able to register for myUHN Patient Portal and learn how they can partner with UHN to help shape care and service. For a full list of this week's events click
National Organ and Tissue Donation Awareness Week
At UHN, we see first-hand just how organ and tissue donation can transform lives, which is why we have been working hard to increase both donation and transplant numbers. Since 2015 we have increased organ donation by 60% and in just one year saw a 10% increase in tissue donation with 87 donors. We have also had another record-breaking year in our transplant program, with 595 transplants performed here over the past year, and the facilitation of a number of pediatric transplants at SickKids. These incredible achievements are thanks to the diligence and hard work of our staff.
To mark this year's National Organ and Tissue Donation Awareness Week, there will be a number of events taking place throughout the organization. Toronto Western is hosting an information booth in the Atrium today and Toronto General will mark this event with a bake sale on Thursday and an information booth on Friday – both will take place in the Eaton lobby. More details are available on the intranet under "What's On @ UHN". You can also help by visiting
beadonor.ca to register or confirm your consent to be an organ and tissue donor. One organ donor can save up to eight lives and enhance the lives of up to 75 people through tissue donation – a simple action with tremendous impact.
