Government officials, health partner organizations, donors, and community members joined Scarborough and Rouge Hospital (SRH) staff, physicians, and volunteers to celebrate the 50th anniversary of SRH’s Centenary site.

“The rich history of our Centenary site is a tribute to the spirit of community health care across Ontario and we are proud to be able to celebrate how our hospital has been changing lives, strengthening the community, and helping it grow,” said Elizabeth Buller, President and CEO of SRH.

“Along with our General and Birchmount sites, Scarborough and Rouge Hospital is now proud to be Ontario’s third largest community hospital, serving a population of over 600,000,” added Maureen Adamson, Chairperson of SRH’s Board of Directors. “We have more than 5,000 staff, 1,000 physicians spanning 13 disciplines, and 1,500 volunteers who work tirelessly each and every day to provide world-class health care close to home for our global community.”

“I would like to commend the dedicated team of staff, administration, and volunteers of Scarborough and Rouge Hospital’s Centenary site for their contributions to building and supporting a strong and vital health care facility,” said John McKay, Member of Parliament for Scarborough-Guildwood.

Also in attendance was Brad Duguid, Member of Provincial Parliament for Scarborough Centre. “Our thanks go out to the hospital’s past and present Board members, leaders, physicians, staff, and volunteers for five decades of excellence in patient care and community health, and for all they have contributed to the high quality health care we enjoy in Ontario,” said Brad.
