William Osler Health System (Osler) is inviting community members to participate in its next Telephone Town Hall on Tuesday, May 3 from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m., and to join the conversation about Osler’s COVID-19 recovery efforts, the transformation of Peel Memorial
Centre for Integrated Health & Wellness into Brampton’s new hospital, the future of hospital services, the latest on its visitor policy and more.
As always, residents will have an opportunity to provide feedback and ask questions of Osler’s senior leaders on the call, or by submitting questions in advance through Osler’s website.
Hosted by Dr. Frank Martino, Osler’s Interim President and CEO, this live event will be moderated by Gurjit Kaur Bains, a member of Osler’s Patient and Family Advisory Council (PFAC). They will be joined by Osler leaders including Linda Franklin, First Vice-Chair, William Osler Health System Board of Directors; Kiki Ferrari, Chief Operating Officer; Ann Ford, Executive Vice President, Strategy and Corporate Services; Mary Jane McNally, Chief Patient Experience Officer; and Shelagh Barry, Director, Community Giving, William Osler Health System Foundation.
“Osler’s Telephone Town Halls provide the community with a real-time opportunity to engage with hospital leaders,” said Dr. Frank Martino. “For Osler, two-way dialogue with residents of Brampton, Etobicoke and surrounding areas is invaluable as it enables us to engage directly with those we serve, and hear their feedback first-hand. We hope as many as possible will join us on May 3 for important updates about the hospital, and the programs and services we know matter most to this community.”
Residents interested in participating in the Telephone Town Hall can pre-register online at www.williamoslerhs.ca/townhall or by leaving a voicemail with their name and phone number at (416) or (905) 494-2120 ext. 50200 before 12:00 p.m. on Tuesday, May 3, 2022.
“I’m delighted to be back moderating Osler’s Telephone Town Hall this spring,” said Gurjit Kaur Bains, member of Osler’s Patient and Family Advisory Council. “One of the reasons I joined Osler’s PFAC was to share my experiences and insights as we all work together to improve health care in our community. I am pleased to see Osler’s leadership has continued the commitment to meaningful two-way communication with the community and I am proud to be a part of it.”
