Her Royal Highness, The Countess of Wessex, known more affectionately as Princess Sophie, last week visited Toronto General and Toronto Western hospitals.

The Countess is Patron of both hospitals and first visited with The Earl of Wessex in 2005. This was her fourth visit to the hospitals since then.

While here, Her Royal Highness and The Honourable Elizabeth Dowdeswell, Lieutenant-Governor of Ontario, learned about the hospital's leading-edge technology and met patients and staff of the Sprott Department of Surgery, Stroke Program, Peter Munk Cardiac Centre, Division of General Internal Medicine, and Soham & Shaila Ajmera Family Transplant Centre.
