Women’s College Hospital (WCH)

For more than 100 years Women’s College Hospital (WCH) has been developing revolutionary advances in healthcare and we continue to build on this rich legacy established by our founders – courageous pioneers who refused to accept the status quo. Today our hospital culture is still shaped by leaders, healthcare providers and community members who break down barriers and push the boundaries of traditional healthcare in the pursuit of equity and excellence for the 21st century.

Women’s College Hospital is now a leader in health for women, health equity and health system solutions – a hospital designed to keep people out of hospital. We are developing ground-breaking innovations that address the most pressing issues related to population health, patient experience and system costs. We advocate for health equity because we know that a healthy society requires a level playing field where everyone has access to timely, high quality, efficient and compassionate care.

In this next great era for Women’s College Hospital, we are building on an ambitious vision - to revolutionize healthcare for a healthier and more equitable world. We are achieving this bold objective as a unified organization, in partnership with our diverse communities – patients, family members, thought leaders, philanthropists, innovators and disruptors in government, community, academia and the private sector.

We see a future of Healthcare Revolutionized – where we are setting a new pace for radical redesign in healthcare. Like our founders, we aim to shift the balance of power, to confront gender and social inequities that threaten people’s health, to bring virtual care into the mainstream and to reimagine how ambulatory healthcare services are delivered so we can provide substantial health system solutions and close the health gaps for all.
