Michael Garron Hospital Foundation



Nestled in the heart of East Toronto, Michael Garron Hospital is a vibrant community teaching hospital. We care for one of the most diverse populations in the country with the same goal every day: first-rate care on a first-name basis.

We develop tomorrow’s healthcare leaders through outstanding educational programming, including a highly-rated community and family medicine teaching program affiliated with the University of Toronto. Our researchers create new knowledge that puts evidence into practice to benefit the dynamic neighbourhoods our hospital serves.

We aren’t just a hospital. We are the heart of the east.

Michael Garron Hospital Foundation raises funds and engages our community in support of our hospital. Your donation is an investment in the prosperity of each and every person living in East Toronto. When members of our community are healthy, they’re able to reach their full potential and better contribute to their family, neighbourhood, and ultimately, Canadian society.

Our Impact

A donation to Michael Garron Hospital has an impact on everyone who needs us.

With over 400,000 residents in 22 distinct neighbourhoods, East Toronto is one of the country’s most diverse communities. It’s home to more newcomers to Canada, children, elderly people living alone and refugees than elsewhere in the city.

With your generosity, we tailor care to the needs of our loved ones and neighbours, accelerate research and learning, and elevate the patient experience.

“I’d always assumed that only the wealthy made charitable gifts in their will,” says Gary Grant, a Michael Garron Hospital legacy donor and foundation volunteer. “But I discovered I can provide for my kids and still leave a gift as my thank-you to the place that has meant so much to me all my life.”
