Two members of the UHN community are among the latest recipients of the Order of Ontario, the province's highest civilian honour.
Dr. Kevin Smith, President & CEO, and Leo Goldhar, a longtime member of UHN Foundation's Board of Directors, were named along with 22 other new appointees by The Honourable Elizabeth Dowdeswell, Lieutenant Governor of Ontario.
"Their service to our province is a reminder to all of us fortunate enough to call Ontario home, that the fabric of society is knit together by good deeds and the dedication of individuals," she said in a news release. "May their accomplishments be an inspiration and example for many to follow."
The Order of Ontario recognizes exceptional leaders from all walks of life and diverse fields of endeavour whose impact and lasting legacy have played an important role in building a stronger province, country and world.
"Dr. Kevin Smith is a rare leader who understands the importance of the continuum of care, from basic research to community health, within the framework of a publicly funded healthcare system," his citation reads. "He has a long and distinguished career and as the current CEO of University Health Network (UHN), Canada's largest research hospital network, he continues to make a healthier world by transforming lives and communities through excellence in care, discovery and learning."
"Leo Goldhar turned compassionate service into success by championing healthcare workers, seniors with dementia, European Holocaust survivors living in poverty, and more," his citation reads. "His many years of philanthropy, including supporting the University Health Network, the Baycrest Centre for Geriatric Care, and the Friends of Simon Wiesenthal Centre for Holocaust Studies have contributed to the health, and well-being of people across Ontario and around the world."
The Lieutenant Governor will bestow the honour upon the new appointees at a ceremony on Nov. 22.
