On October 12, we opened our new palliative care unit to support our patients at the end of their lives and their families. Close to 150 people were in attendance for the ribbon cutting and to tour the space, including his Eminence Thomas Cardinal Collins, Sisters from the Sisters of St. Joseph of Toronto, Sun Life Financial President and Chair of our Hope Starts Here campaign Kevin Dougherty, and Patsy Badali, who provided a moving testimonial of her own experience with our palliative care program when her uncle Sal died.
We move patients into the new unit on October 24. Thank you to everyone who attended the grand opening and to all our donors who made this space possible.
