Message from Hospital President & CEO

I am proud to join London Health Sciences Centre – an organization with the most skilled, dedicated and passionate team of people I have experienced in my 30-year career. In the very challenging environment we now face, where provincial funding constraints and ever-growing patient care needs have stretched our hospital beyond its capacity, the support of our community inspires us to remain steadfast in our goal to lead positive change that continually improves patient care. 

Our ability to do so is very positively influenced by the incredible support and generosity of donors. It is their ongoing philanthropic support that has helped us to innovate and provide the highest standard of care possible for the nearly one-million patients we support every year, when they need us most. 

To help us meet the region’s growing health care needs, ongoing donor support is critical in order to continually improve patient outcomes; innovate through ground-breaking research; acquire state-of-the-art equipment; and expand programs that will help shape and advance a more effective system of health for the future. 

I encourage you to reach out to my colleagues at London Health Sciences Foundation (LHSF) to learn more about how you can support LHSC’s greatest needs. Whether at our hospitals, specialized clinics, or regional satellite locations, donations to LHSF are instrumental in helping us provide the best possible care to patients and families throughout our southwestern Ontario communities. 

Thank you to all those whose contributions help change and save lives. 

Dr. Paul Woods
President & CEO
