A special message from Dr. Brendan Carr, Osler’s new President and CEO

by Osler Staff | Sep 06, 2017

Since starting my role as President and CEO, it’s clear that this organization is deeply committed to providing exceptional care to those we serve and fulfilling our Vision, patient-inspired health care without boundaries. 

Having worked in health care for over 25 years, most recently as the President and CEO of Vancouver Island Health Authority (Island Health) in British Columbia, as a senior leader in hospitals and health care organizations on Canada’s East and West coasts, and as a physician in emergency medicine, I am passionate about the patient experience and the delivery of safe, quality care. That’s why I am so excited to be part of an organization like Osler.

To successfully realize our Vision, we can’t do it without you - our patients, families, health and community partners, donors and the communities we serve. Over the coming months, I look forward to meeting with our community partners, further strengthening our relationships with primary care physicians, speaking with the many donors who so generously support our work, and getting to know the people in Brampton, Etobicoke and surrounding communities who inspire us to be the best at what we do every day.  If you have any questions or input, I encourage you to contact us at

We will continue to focus on our existing priorities and projects as defined by our current 2013-2018 Corporate Strategic Plan. We will also begin to thoroughly think through what’s next for Osler in terms of our longer-term strategic priorities so we can continue to build on Osler’s many successes and look to the future. 
Osler was an exceptional organization before I arrived thanks to dedicated and strong leadership. From opening the modern, new Peel Memorial Centre for Integrated Health and Wellness, to advancing Osler’s transformation of Etobicoke General Hospital, and to improving patient care for our community, so much has already been accomplished.  

I am truly excited about the future of Osler, and know that together, we will continue to build on the successes of the past and take patient-inspired care to new heights.

Dr. Brendan Carr
