Statement on Scarborough Health Network Foundation’s Launch


TORONTO, ON - I would like to congratulate and extend my warmest wishes to all those involved in the launch of the new Scarborough Health Network Foundation (SHN).


Formally, Scarborough Rouge Hospital Foundation, SHN has been shaping the future of care in the Scarborough community for over two years. Their new vision is to transform the health experience of the community by leading with exceptional care through research and teaching. Their plans include improving the operating rooms, planning for future facilities and upgrading the state of the emergency departments at Birchmount and Centenary Hospitals and the Bridletown Neighbourhood Centre. Thank you to the community members that participated during the consultations process, to help shape the direction of the new SHN. 


I am looking forward to this new beginning in Scarborough as SHN begins to shape the future of care in our community. Their strategic plans for the community cater to the needs of the residents and will develop with the growth of the population and diversity.


Under the Liberal Government, $1.1 billion was budgeted for hospital improvements but no plans to pull through with this promise have been announced by the Ford Government. Each patient deserves adequate health services and the professionals that provide these services deserve to be equipped right here in Scarborough.


Thank you to SHN and their team of health care professionals for their dedication and commitment to Scarborough. Your passion improves the lives and health of our community. We welcome SHN and look forward to all the new health care innovations to come.
