Mackenzie Health’s pediatricians are all in for the Exceptional Care Belongs Here campaign.
Under the leadership of Chief of Pediatrics Dr. David Gryn, every physician in the pediatrics program has made a gift to the $250-million campaign to help build and equip Mackenzie Vaughan Hospital and enhance care at Mackenzie Richmond Hill Hospital, according to Mackenzie Health Foundation President and CEO Ingrid Perry.
“As physicians who know first-hand that investments in patient care have widespread and far-reaching impact, they are emerging as early leaders, advocates and ambassadors for our Exceptional Care Belongs Here campaign,” Ingrid says. “Quite simply, they truly believe that exceptional care belongs here. Their support to our campaign, combined with incredible talent and a passion for what they do, is ensuring that Mackenzie Health’s tiniest patients and their families will have the best care in their time of need.”
As a physician at Mackenzie Health for eight years, Dr. Gryn says he feels a personal responsibility to support the campaign that will help build a new hospital that will serve the rapidly growing community in southwest York Region.
“I really believe strongly in the mission of the hospital and in the Foundation’s goal of helping to ensure we have the infrastructure and equipment we need to meet our community’s needs.” Dr. Gryn added, “We, as physicians, have to be leaders in this important cause of donating to the hospital and in the culture of philanthropy across the community that we serve.”
