At Sinai Health, 2021 was another eventful year. While we continued to navigate the ever-evolving pandemic, there were many memorable moments and milestones that we celebrated together.
“Our achievements in 2021 were possible because of the extraordinary efforts of all of our people to care, create possibilities and offer hope.”
Dr. Gary Newton
President and Chief Executive Officer, Sinai Health
