OUR CREED


Knowledge. It empowers us to make lives better.

It is the passion that comes from pursuing the truth and the courage that comes from knowing it.

Knowledge is the comfort and compassion and the clarity and capability that come from experience.

Knowledge creates a thirst for more knowledge, so it is also innovation and progress.

When knowledge presents us with a solution, it is discovery and victory; when it does not, it is determination.

Knowledge is health. It feeds vigorous minds, it protects and mends the body, and it bolsters the spirit.

Knowledge is everything and knowledge can do anything.

In fact, knowledge built Toronto General and Toronto Western hospitals – not the buildings, but the hearts and minds of those driven to transform lives.

This is what knowledge can do.
