We’ve mentioned before how much working with hospitals in the communities we build in is important to us, and North York General Hospital is one of those hospitals. Not only are we all North York natives, but the hospital’s transition from a suburban hospital to a regional health centre able to cater to over 400,000 people a year has been truly staggering to watch. North York General has become one of the most in-demand and prestigious health centres in Canada. At Paradise Developments, we wanted to support a priority at the hospital that would benefit patients and the system and as a whole.
As many of you already know, giving back to the communities we build in is a huge part of what we do. One of the initiatives we’re most proud of is the Wellspring Chinguacousy cancer support centre in Brampton – we donated land that’s just a short drive away from our Upper Mount Pleasant project, so that Wellspring could expand and build one of their centres there.
Giving back to the communities we live, work, and build in is important to the entire Paradise Developments team. We’ve made it our mission to not only contribute to cities and towns by creating new communities to live in, but to contribute to the greater good of those places as well. This is why we choose to make considerable donations to hospitals in every community we build in! Our VP, Rob Baruch, has taken a particular interest in North York General Hospital and is even the chairman of their hospital board.
One of our favourite events is right around the corner and we couldn’t be more excited! The 3rd annual Heart of Fashion gala is almost here and we’re lucky to be a part of this amazing cause as one of its key sponsors. Each year, North York General Hospital invites over 500 of Toronto’s top socialites and philanthropists to come together at Heart of Fashion and raise money for a different wing in the hospital. This year, we’re happy to announce that proceeds from the event will be going to the construction of a new, full-service, state-of-the-art Interventional Radiology Suite at North York General Hospital!
In our 43 years in business, Paradise has created communities all around the GTA. From Aurora to Brampton to Whitby and everywhere in between, we truly believe that the 905 is a great place to grow and give back. That’s why, for almost as long as we’ve been in business, we’ve been re-investing in those communities to help them thrive. We’ve worked with a great number of charities over the years, but the one closest to our hearts is North York General Hospital. The world-class work they do every day is truly staggering, and being able to help them do it is an incredible privilege.
Both of Paradise’s founding families have long been based in North York, and so we’ve watched North York General go from a suburban hospital to regional health centre that serves over 400,000 people per year. North York now performs world-class patient centered care and innovative new techniques, making it one of the most in-demand treatment facilities in the country.
