UHN has embarked on an organizational renewal which will set the stage for success over the next several decades, President and CEO Dr. Peter Pisters told the Annual General Meeting.
In a presentation entitled
A Year in 'Renew,' Dr. Pisters took a standing room only crowd at the MaRS Auditorium on Wednesday afternoon through a journey of the previous year, saying that the accomplishments and challenges at UHN will serve as building blocks for the organization's future.
Dr. Pisters underscored that as Canada's largest research hospital, UHN remains dedicated to providing exemplary patient care, innovative education and ground-breaking research. He also announced the launch of a website –
renewinguhn.ca – to keep staff, patients, caregivers and the broader community updated on eight key areas of corporate focus on a journey of renewal that builds on our past successes.
Dr. Pisters said "our path forward" will required formulation of a Strategic Plan, a Master Plan for Facilities and a Financial Plan.
Calling the current re-visiting of our Purpose, Values and Principles the "foundation" for our journey of renewal, Dr. Pisters referred to the work of author, speaker and consultant Simon Sinek in noting that asking why we exist "is extremely important in high-performing organizations." As part of the ongoing PVP process, he also announced plans for a "digital discussion" across UHN later this year.
Dr. Pisters finished his presentation on the renewal underway at UHN by quoting Scottish writer Robert Louis Stevenson: "Don't judge each day by the harvest you reap, but by the seeds you plant."
