Vision, Mission and Values


Canada’s leading academic, ambulatory hospital and a world leader in women’s health.


We advance and advocate for the health of women and improve healthcare options for all by developing, researching, teaching and delivering new treatments and models of integrated care.


We are guided by our values in everything we do.

We value, promote, and create equitable access and opportunities for achieving optimal health for the communities we serve through research, education, and practice. We build and advance a culture of inclusion and respect for all who work and visit here and we see this as our foundation of excellence.

We value quality and safety excellence in a learning environment that motivates care and service improvement through research, education, and best practice. We rigorously apply health, safety, and risk management practices to ensure a safe and healthy environment for all who work and visit the hospital.

We value a culture of innovation, translating creative ideas, and new discoveries, or adapting previous solutions in new ways that energize the organization, revolutionize care, and contribute to system solutions.

We value the collective strength, created through relationships within and beyond our organization, which aligns to support our mandate.

We value and develop courageous, innovative, collaborative and accountable leaders whose decision-making is guided by evidence and expertise. We inspire others to achieve their goals and lead by example.

We value cooperative sharing of ideas and information that promote a positive climate and alignment within and across internal and/or external groups/partners and contribute to the development of sustainable, quality, system-integrated care.
