Toronto General Hospital (TGH), one of eight hospitals that make up Canada’s University Health Network, was recognized as one of the ten best hospitals in the world according to a study by Newsweek magazine. Newsweek covers various aspect of health care and partnered with Statista Inc., a global market research and consumer data company, to develop a ranking of the world’s best hospitals. The hospitals on this list are at the forefront of adapting to new challenges while providing top-notch patient care.
TGH was recognized for being the biggest and most well-funded research organization in the country and the largest transplant center in North America. As the teaching hospital for the University of Toronto, it leads transplantation research and innovation, accomplishing many “firsts,” including a triple organ transplant (double-lung, liver and pancreas) in 2015. TGH is home to the Peter Munk Cardiac Centre (named for the founder of Barrick Gold, who donated $100 million), a global leader in open-heart surgery and cardiovascular health.
Congratulations to all our CDTRP colleagues at TGH for this very well deserved recognition.
