Thank you TeamUHN!
UHN’s healthcare heroes are on the front lines of the fight against COVID-19, and in the lab finding solutions to end this pandemic. They’re more driven than ever to make lives better, but they need support to keep going. That’s where you, our donor community, comes in.
Our donors are ensuring they have the protective equipment they need to stay safe, food and shelter to refuel while keeping their families safe, and funding for critical research.
It’s a tireless job for TeamUHN, but not a thankless one.
We’re in this together. Let’s show TeamUHN some extra support with messages of thanks.

To our incredible healthcare heroes,
Thank you so much for all that you do in keeping the public and our community safe. This past year has without doubt been a crazy ride but without your tireless efforts and commitment to fighting the pandemic, we would not be where we are today. Your constant investment into keeping the public safe does not go unnoticed and we are ever so grateful for that. Your blood, sweat and tears that have been shed over the year is something that the public cannot thank you enough for. You have put the public above yourselves in the fight against the pandemic and that is an action that is beyond commendable. Thank you once again for fighting the good fight and sending all of our prayers and well wishes!
Dear front-line workers,
Though it seems like the end is nearing, it has been a year of tireless work and patience. It is you all that have beared much of the work in keeping our community safe and healthy. Your work does not go unnoticed or unappreciated!
THANK YOU FOR ALL THAT YOU DO! STAY SAFE.

Thank you to all the hospital staff! I wish I could be part of your team and help in fighting this pandemic. Always remember there are people who you have never met who appreciate all the work you have and continue to put in. Kudos to all the frontline workers. God bless!
To All of the Amazing Front Line Staff at UHN:
Words are not enough to thank you for your many sacrifices during this pandemic! My family supports you by wearing masks, washing hands, keeping distance and staying home as much as possible. It’s wearing us down too but we will continue to support you in this manner.
God bless you … what would we do without you?
Thank you for all your hard work. I hope you can go back to your families.
God bless you for all your work. Better days are coming I promise you. Thank you.

Your job is super important. Thank you for keeping us safe.

I know you are feeling scared and stressed because covid-19 is scary. But I know that if you keep up the fight and wear your PPE we can beat this horrible virus. Thank you for keeping us safe.
Thank you for helping us. You are doing a good job.
My name is Abubakar. I am in grade 2. I am very happy to write you this letter. I want to thank you for all your effort for taking care of us especially during this covid 19 and keeping us safe. You are my hero and I will like to be a doctor when I grow up. Thank you once again. God bless.
Thank you to the cleaners for keeping the hospital so clean. I promise to stay safe to stop covid 19 spreading. You are doing a great job. We appreciate you.
Thanks to Dr. Radomski and hospital staff for giving my life back to me. I now can do things I couldn’t do for years. Real professionalism. You are my true heroes.
Thank you @Team UHN, you are awesome
I’m a teacher at Parkside Elementary school. My grade 1/2 class have written letters to front line workers to put a smile on your face! Here’s another one! Thank you for everything!
THANK YOU! For all your hard work and dedication! God bless you all, and I really hope the government compensates you all during and even long after the pandemic is over.
To all of the healthcare workers on the front line,
We owe our lives to you and the work you’re doing.
As my family and I stay home and do our part to stop the spread, I have infinite gratitude and appreciation for everything you are sacrificing to help our community. Your selflessness + hard work does not go unnoticed. I know it can be disheartening to see people disregard guidelines while you work tirelessly to save families and individuals, however I want you to know that there are people out there that are doing everything we can to take the load off of you. It may seem like a dark tunnel with no light at the end but I would like you to know that we will get through this, you are helping to save communities and humanity as a whole. A thank you note will never be enough to express how grateful I am but it is a start. Stay healthy and safe!
Thank you to all who care for Covid-19 patients! There are many many people who are in your corner and are very grateful to all of the care givers!!!
Thank you UHN workers for tirelessly saving lives day after day. Healthcare workers have always been immensely critical to us, and this pandemic helped open the world’s eyes to the role you play in our lives.
I am deeply grateful for your commitment, bravery, and all the sacrifices that you and your families make every day, especially during this pandemic. Your tireless efforts, long shifts, dedication, and compassion will never go unnoticed. You are courageous, beautiful human beings and I appreciate every effort you have put forward to make sure we, along with our loved ones, stay safe, healthy, and strong. Thank you to all of the front-line workers for putting your lives on the line for so many others. Thank you for being our heroes every day! Sending you all virtual hugs, and pray for your well-being and safety.❤️
You have silently taken on the battle of 2020 on your shoulders, with a constant smile and care for your patients. And you’re still going strong. I would never forget the warmth I received from the TWH nurse who took my nose swab, she made the process so much easier for me. And one of my friends who works as an ICU nurse at TWH, I salute you. I cannot thank you enough. This is my small token of gratitude to all the frontline healthcare workers at UHN and everywhere. 🙏🏻
Thank you for everything you have done and continue to do through this very difficult time. Without you, we couldn’t keep our community healthy. You are doing the most important work right now. Stay strong and take care of yourselves and each other as much as you can.
You are all hero’s!
Thank you for your unwavering strength, care and dedication.
Thank you to TeamUHN for what you are doing day in and day out during this pandemic!
My gratitude and respect for your courage, strength, compassion and resilience ❤️.
Thinking of everyone though this difficult time especially over the holidays.
🙏 for everyone’s safety and good health!
Thank you so much for everything! You are all amazing! The city needs and appreciates you!
Thank you to the nurses in the CVICU for their care and patience. There aren’t enough thank yous to express my gratitude to you.
I am approaching the 5th anniversary of my Live Donor Liver Transplant and there are not enough words to express how grateful I am, not only to my donor, but to my entire team at the Multi-Organ Transplant Program. They are not only highly skilled but they are also incredibly compassionate, supportive and understanding. I am completely confident in my care and have been since long before my transplant when I was followed by the great doctors in the Liver department. Shout out also to the Transplant Pharmacy who makes sure I am well stocked with my meds. Thank you to everyone on the 12th floor at TGH for all you do.
A huge thank you to the entire Emergency Health Care Team at Toronto Western Hospital. On Saturday November 14th I took my special needs sister to Emergency as she had a fractured humerus. Being severely disabled Sandra doesn’t speak, is deaf, requires total care for daily activities and personal needs. Everyone from the security guard, to the registration staff, to the nurses, technicians and doctors were caring, attentive, understanding and made us feel very safe. A special shout out to Dr David, Nurses Melissa and Sarah, x-ray technicians Charmaine-2 and the two lovely gentlemen that patiently took the X-rays …you are truly making a difference and we are very appreciative of all that you do. I can only imagine all of the difficulty situations that you face on a daily basis….please know that you are appreciated. Thank you and the best for all of you! 🙏💕

Thank you so much for your effort. God bless you all.
Dear friends who are on the front line in the fight against the pandemic called COVID-19, who make superhuman efforts every day to help everyone who needs that help, I just want to say thank you very much, for all the help, for all the care and love that you provide to our fellow citizens. Your efforts, your expertise, your knowledge and skills, your commitment to one of the most humane professions in the world, have honed one of the most beautiful gems of Canada and the whole world called Toronto General and Western Hospital. I wish you good health and good luck in your future work. God bless you all.
Grateful for your selflessness and compassion – not very many can do what you do – especially during such shaky times. Thank you.
I have been a Circle of Life donor since 2003. Thank you for all the work that you do, and for being there for my family whenever we’ve needed you.
Every member of TeamUHN has given their all during these trying times of Covid 19. So much of what they’ve done wouldn’t have been possible without our generous and committed donor investors. They have come to our aid to support staff accommodation, needed research investments and generous support for patients and families. Thank you so much.
In awe of, humbled by and eternally grateful for our healthcare workers who did not miss a beat caring for patients during these unprecedented times. There is no way we can ever repay you for your sacrifices. THANK YOU!
Thank you for your great work in this “war” against the pandemic. Your commitment and dedication is greatly appreciated. Sending a photo of the shamrock that my grandmother brought from Ireland. Enjoy!
Thank you to everyone fighting everyday against COVID-19. You are heroes and we have so much respect for you. Thank you for all that you are doing, you are going above and beyond. My mother and father were both patients during COVID-19 and I was so proud of the care they received.
Thank you to the Liver Transplant Team at Toronto General, Geoffrey Yarronton, Dr Bhat, Dr Gauthier, my surgeon Dr Catrall, 6th floor nurses, 7th floor nurses and many others who are the support staff that make the journey easier, the smiles, positivity, encouragement, simply amazing. I’m not totally out of the woods yet so you will all be seeing me. But Thank You for everything you do. We couldn’t do it without you all.
Awesome. Proud to be a part of such a great team! Bickle centre Chiropody team. Thanks for all that everyone does each and every day.
Praying for all the front line team of UHN. I know how hard you all work. Been in your place as an RN fro 40 years at UHN. Keeping you all in my prayers. Be safe .
UHN healthcare workers,
Toronto, and Ontario more broadly, are truly blessed to have such wonderful and caring health care professionals at this time of global pandemic. While the pandemic has impacted all of us, I can only imagine how much more it has impacted you the front line workers in the care of patients. I truly do think of you all as heros – courageous, brave and focused on your mission of patient care.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
I am so eternally grateful for everything you do in bringing our loved ones back to health and wellness. I cannot thank you enough.
No words can express the gratitude that all of us have for the heroes on the front lines….taking care of all of us, and I’m sure, missing their families as well….it must be very stressful but yet they soldier on….we are so very lucky that we have people who really care about our well being……their efforts are beyond commitment and to them it is not a job but a vocation…..we could not ask more from them than they give on a daily basis…..to them, I say, take a bow, you have more than earned it…..blessed be, keep well and stay safe…..
We are so proud of what you are doing. We are always grateful to all the front line workers. Prayers and wishes to you and your family. Thank you very much for standing strong in this COVID-19 situation
It’s your work, day in and day out, so maybe you just take it for granted. It’s just what you do.
But from us on the other side of that front line, know that we NEVER take you for granted. From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you, and your families who support you.
You are making our world a better place, one patient, one lab test, one shift at a time.
Thank you all SO, SO much!! YOU are a STAR!
Words seem painfully inadequate but thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude, both as a patient and as a citizen of our amazing city. As part of the vulnerable population (kidney transplant), I look up to professional health care workers like yourself, for your steady hand during tumultuous times. Let’s also not forget the custodial workers who keep the hospitals clean. Everyone doing their part is a very moving thing to experience. Thank you so much, from the bottom of my heart, for your hardwork and dedication in health care service to the citizens of Toronto and Ontario.
To every single individuals who have dedicated yourself to serve in the front lines of healthcare, I certainly are eternally grateful to know in the midst of such chaos and turmoils there still are angels like yourselves, who would put their lives in front of dangers to try and create peace and calmness. The amount of heart and courage that require are immeasurable. Personal scarifies are imminence to let your family and love ones in taking the backseat when you alone go into the front line to combat the unknown for the greater good. Most definitely your career is sacred and it is only for special individual with the calling can endure the journey that you are on. Appreciation cannot even describe how I feel towards what you do. No meter can measure the amount of faith you posses and of course not, how can the angel’s faith be measure?
THANK YOU VERY MUCH FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART!
Keep up the good work!
Thank you for your hard work and dedication. It does not go unnoticed. We appreciate all you do for the world, it’s selfless and brave. Sending good wishes.
Sending words of appreciation and gratitude for the dedication, courage and hard work of the Team UHN. You are our heroes and give us courage, endurance, resilience and confidence knowing that you are there for us.
Also a big thanks for the informative webinars which you have aired to inform us and increase our understanding and knowledge.
Sending a big cheer to all the staff.
To everyone in the University Health Network
So far I have been one of the fortunate ones to not be stricken with this virus…
Even so I want all of you to know that you are genuinely appreciated for the dedication and sacrifice you are making on behalf of us all…
My grandmother who was one of the first women physicians graduating from the Ontario Medical College for Women in the 1880’s; my father who was an F.A.C.S and F.R.C.S graduate of University of Toronto Medical School, one time President of the Ontario Medical Association and Chairman of the Disciplinary Committee of the College of Physicians and Surgeons and Coroner for Northern Ontario; and my mother who was a Registered Private Duty Nurse from Toronto Sick Kids Hospital would have been even more proud of and grateful to all of you than I could ever think of being. I know they are looking down upon everyone in your profession and smiling..
God bless each and every one of you
Thomas J T Mitchell
You’re so strong and we appreciate all the work that you all do. Thank you!!!

I am truly grateful for everything you do every minute of the day.
Please take good care of yourself.
Really appreciate all that our healthcare workers do at all times but especially this year. Your dedication is much appreciated. I hope you all get some well deserved rest time sometime soon.
Many thanks to TeamUHN, your commitment and courage in this time of greatest societal need is second to none. You are “difference-makers”, for which we are immensely grateful.

There are few words to express the respect and gratitude our family has for all of the Frontline workers. Your fearlessness, bravado, expertise and dedication along with a good dose of humour I suspect… Very much appreciated.Thank you. What you have done, what you continue to do will not be forgotten. We will emerge from this hopefully a better stronger society and a lot of that will be because of what you have done and continue to do.
No thanks necessary, just to share my experience with TWH, I was interned there when I was a dental student and got my subdura haematoma treated in TWH in 2017 under the supervision of some very experienced neurologist there, enough said.
Thank you for all you do – you are truly our super hero’s!
I want to express my sincere thanks to all front-line heroes. Always remember to take care of yourselves. Everything will be better.
Thank you team UHN at TGH. We are so grateful .

We are forever in your debt.
I recognize the incredible personal sacrifices you are making to keep us all safe.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
God Bless you all.
God bless you all, you are all Angles

thank you for keeping us safe; the heroic work that you are doing is helping Canada and Ontario in particular strong and resilient during this stressful pandemic time. Words alone cannot express our deep gratitude for your amazing work!
Happy Canada Day, stay safe and healthy!!
I don’t believe there are words in any language that can fully express the depth of gratitude we feel for your dedication, caring, and devotion in performing your duties under what are often difficult and stressful situations during normal times. But, whenever I think about what you have been called upon to deal with over these last few months, and, unfortunately, due to self-centered and ignorant people, what looks like may be for many months to come, leaves me a weeping mess. Hopefully, your schedules are allowing for some much-needed time to de-stress and find your balance, before stepping back into the chaos.
There are times when the words “Thank You” are so heavy from the weight they carry, and this is one of them.
My wife and I are so grateful to be associated with UHN. I’ve been a patient at Toronto Western since 2017. I’ve had the greatest care and follow-ups ever since. Staff in all departments, Call Centre, nursing, doctors, and emergency just to name a few, have all been wonderful and caring. YOU ARE TRULY AMAZING!
To all medical front line staff, support workers, maintenance staff, environmental services, food services, security, receptionists. Thank you for showing up everyday to ensure that our community has the best care in the world. We cannot thank you enough for putting your lives at risk every day on our behalf. Keep up the amazing work and know that your community is behind you, grateful and doing the best we can to flatten the curve.
Thanks for keeping us well and safe. Wishing you good health, and keeping well. Best wishes, David
Every night my condo and every condo around us come onto our balconies to clap and show our appreciation. We all thank you for everything you have had to do and are still doing during this pandemic. You are angel’s every one.
My great appreciation for all that’s done by front line staff and researchers of TWH, battling this pandemic, we all truly owe you!
YOU ARE THE BEST !!! YOU MADE US ALL VERY PROUD, Please know that your efforts are very impressive and have not gone unnoticed.
Keep up the great work.
Dear UHN’s healthcare heroes,
While COVID-19 has emerged perhaps as the most horrible disaster mankind has ever known with millions of humans around the Globe falling victim to this dreaded disaster and losing their lives, it is a consoling to know that speedy research is going on to make available the vaccine to curb the menace.
Until such a prophylactic measure is to hand, men and women will continue to be exposed to the disease and rush to the hospital Emergency Unit with the hope of survival.
Dear Team UHN, let me tell you that having served as a Hospital Representative with DuPont Pharmaceuticals with responsibility for all major Teaching Hospitals in the Toronto area, part of my professional life was spent in the hospital settings. And I am fully aware of the meticulous care and concern that you extend to the suffering of humanity and making their return to homes possible.
Bravo, my dear UHN’s healthcare heroes, and may God Bless you!
Thank all of you so much
All my thanks to the courageous Healthcare workers fighting the fight against COVID-19! I hope that none of you are too stressed out working in potentially dangerous areas.
But I would be worried if you were not tired of having to change your clothes and shower before seeing your family and friends! I’ve kept up with the great work you do and I thank you, for you are my Heroes!! 💞
I appreciate your care on the frontlines.
I also appreciate the support and care that I have received from Dr. Leonard Schwartz and Dr. R.J. Cuisimano and staff at Peter Munk Centre.
Thank you to the staff at UHN your brave and compassionate care during the pandemic.
Thanks to the ER team at TGH for excellent and efficient treatment on June 4th following a traffic accident on St Clair Avenue. Couldn’t have been treated better!!
When I had my heart ablation at TGH in 2009, I learned first hand about the quality of medical work and medical care at your hospital. Eleven years later, you guys and ladies have my undying gratitude for your work in preserving us from Covid. Now being 70, I am one of those hunkered down for the last 4 months, hoping to avoid it. But you guys have been there for everyone who has been sick, showed symptoms, been admitted, or passed on to their eternal reward. You have seen life and death on a much vaster scale than normal. Thank you for being in the line of fire, and taking care of all of us out here. We are indebted to you all. You guys are the best.
John Joseph Kelly

You guys are amazing to continue with such zeal, energy and enthusiasm in the face of a constant, silent and invisibly deadly threat.
Humor and your smiles indeed defeats death – keep up the great job! Money cannot compensate you, only the blessing of a more broader socially caring society; that will be your magnificent and eternal victory / reward..as we were designed to live.
A huge THANK YOU to all of the dedicated people who sacrificed so much to save so many!!! It takes a lot of inner personal strength to carry on in such adverse and extraordinary conditions! We are VERY fortunate to have professionals like you caring for us!!! … a thousand times THANK YOU!!!
Thank all of you front line workers for working tirelessly to help save Canadian lives. God Bless all of you.
Thanks to our courageous frontline workers! My family appreciates everything you have done for us.
I’ve always said that it takes a really special kind of person to be a healthcare worker. Through experiences with my own family members I have witnessed it firsthand. I admire the dedication and sacrifice that you show every day, and especially during COVID-19. I could never do what you do, but I will do my best to raise you up in any way I can. Thank you!
You deserve all the praise in the world! Thank you for keeping us safe and healthy. True heroes!
It is inspiring to see all the stories of the incredible work coming out of UHN. From taking care of patients to trying to find an end to COVID-19. I hope that you know how amazing you all. You are truly my hero!
We are so grateful for the team at UHN! Thank you for keeping us safe.
Thank you to TeamUHN for all of the hard work that you continue to do during this challenging time!
A big thank you to everyone at TeamUHN working on the front lines–we love you!
Thank you for taking care of us! I hope you are taking care of yourselves too!
Thank you for all you do!
