Join us on the race to replacing all of North York General’s hospital beds in every area of care! Set your fundraising goal today and be a champion in supporting our efforts by raising funds to support North York General’s Bed Campaign.
North York General Hospital (NYGH) serves over 420,000 patients each year in one of the most diverse populations in Canada, nearly 30,000 of who are admitted into 426 beds. We only need to think about our own bed at home to imagine the importance of a hospital bed to a patient. Imagine a single bed at NYGH, and how many patients use it throughout the year – 24 hours a day, 365 days a year!
BUT, DID YOU KNOW that while the Government of Canada funds many of the hospital's day-to-day operations, it often does not cover the cost of new and replacement equipment, including beds. Many of NYGH’s beds are 10, 15 and even 25 years old and are approaching the point where they must be replaced to enhance patient care and safety.
That is why we have launched our It’s Not Just a Bed campaign, a three year plan to replace all hospital beds at NYGH throughout every area of care by 2018.
Because it’s not just a bed – it’s a place our patients experience diagnosis of critical illness, recovery, the birth of their baby, or the passing of a loved one.
Our goal for the 2017 B&O Yorkville Run is to raise $20,000 which will go toward replacing these beds. And we need YOU!
You Can Help Us Go Beyond Care
Going Beyond Care is about providing our patients with the highest standard of care in a world-class community hospital, with the same dedication and concern that we would show our loved ones.
Going Beyond Care is what we do at NYGH – but we can’t do it without you. Thank you for joining us in the race to the finish line.
