UHN is sharpening its focus on the road to organizational renewal.
That was the message yesterday from UHN President and CEO Dr. Peter Pisters at the Annual General Meeting, which was held in the MaRS Auditorium.
In his presentation, Dr. Pisters celebrated UHN's milestones and accomplishments, particularly in the corporate Areas of Focus over the past year, while highlighting the importance of looking ahead.
Reflecting on the incredible work that has been done, Dr. Pisters paused to tell the audience, "thank you to our extraordinary community for coming together to renew UHN."
Dr. Pisters used staff and patient stories to underscore his point. He also described the new Purpose, Values & Principles (PVP) as being "the bedrock" on which UHN's Strategic Plan is being created and the guide to "how we plan, allocate resources, manage performance, and behave as an organization."
Dr. Pisters talked of the importance of "engaging our community in our future." He also emphasized how the Strategic Plan will help create an even better UHN while realizing the organization's purpose – "transforming lives and communities through excellence in care, discovery and learning."
"We are famous for what we have done," Dr. Pisters said, reiterating a line he delivered at his inaugural UHN AGM in 2015. "We need to be famous for what we will do."
The meeting also served as a passing of the torch among the UHN Board of Trustees.
Dr. Pisters acknowledged the outgoing members – Eileen Mercier, Robert Krembil and John Mulvihill – who have contributed more than 40 years of combined service to UHN. He also welcomed the new members – Kelvin Dushnisky, Peter Menkes and Dr. Ross Baker.
Special tribute was paid to the outgoing Chair of the Board, John Mulvihill, who has held the position since 2009 and has over the past year been working with new Chair Brian Porter, President and CEO of Scotiabank.
"John has overseen transformational changes in UHN in his time here," Dr. Pisters said.
