Meet the Departments

Doctors, patients, nurses and staff members from all three sites of Scarborough and Rouge Hospital, Birchmount, General and Centenary, will come together to race in the annual Brave T.O. obstacle course.

Not only do our hospital staff know how to provide the best care for each unique patient, they know better than anyone what equipment is needed to do so. Let’s face it medical equipment is expensive. This is where the power of our community comes in: each and every person has the power to make a huge difference! Please join our staff in the effort to raise thousands of dollars for their departments!
