A Statement from Humber River Hospital President & CEO Dr. Rueben Devlin

TORONTO, Oct. 18, 2015 /CNW/ - The move to our new hospital is now complete. It was a successful day for everyone, thanks to outstanding work by our hospital team and our move day partners. A total of 351 patients were safely and professionally transported to our new site without incident. Great job, everyone!

On behalf of everyone at Humber River Hospital, I extend our thanks to Pat Moriarty, Colleen Tew, Jay Card and the team from Health Care Relocations for their guidance in helping us plan and deliver the largest single day inpatient move in Canadian history.

Thanks also go to Toronto Paramedic Services, Spectrum Patient Services and the Humber River Hospital volunteers for their work on behalf of our patients and families today.

We couldn't have done it without each and every one of you.
