SCARBOROUGH (July 4, 2018) – Government officials, health partner organizations, donors, and community members joined Scarborough and Rouge Hospital (SRH) staff, physicians, and volunteers to celebrate an unforgettable year and preview the organization’s inaugural strategic plan at SRH’s 2018 Annual General Meeting (AGM) on June 28.

“This year’s AGM was made possible because of the many individuals – both within and outside our hospital – who have taken the time to share their candid insights and experiences as part of our strategic planning process,” said Elizabeth Buller, President and CEO of SRH.

“Thanks to this support, we’ve created a bold new roadmap that will help us to shape the future of care for everyone in our community.”

In addition to the launch of the strategic plan, the hospital welcomed three new elected Directors. Joining the Board are Lianne Jeffs, Mark Segal, and Richard Wong. View information on SRH’s full Board of Directors.

“SRH is an organization that is ready to develop a highly integrated, highly coordinated, and innovative response to Scarborough’s health care needs. Together with our many stakeholders, we will continue to build on the energy, momentum, and excitement we’ve generated as we move forward in bringing our new strategic plan to life.”
