Applications are invited for the position of Chief, Department of Diagnostic Imaging and Program Medical Director of the Diagnostic Imaging Service at Michael Garron Hospital, Toronto East Health Network, University of Toronto.
Nestled in the heart of East Toronto, Michael Garron Hospital (MGH), as a keystone of the Toronto East Health Network (TEHN), is a vibrant community 450-bed teaching hospital serving one of Canada’s most diverse communities. Since 1929, we have delivered high-quality, patient-centred healthcare services to more than 400,000 people in 22 distinct neighbourhoods. By late 2022, MGH will celebrate the opening of our new Ken and Marilyn Thomson Patient Care Centre. This transformational project will forever change the hospital and the care it provides to our community in keeping our strategic vision to Create Health, Build Community.
The Diagnostic Imaging Service supports the provision of care annually to 7000 in-patient admissions, 70,000 outpatient visits, in addition to consultative services to the Emergency Department and other in-patient Departments. The Department has 150 full and part-time staff and 19 full and part-time physician staff members who meet the needs of our diverse community. Cardiac and respiratory diagnostics are part of the DI portfolio. We provide comprehensive service to the ED, inpatients and outpatients with over 150,000 exams annually.
The Department seeks a visionary forward-thinking strategic leader who is a role model of an excellent practicing clinician, and whose commitment to leadership is exemplified in their support and execution of the hospital’s larger strategic direction. This leader will be forward-thinking for their Department’s future, embracing innovative integrated care approaches, driving ongoing quality improvement, and ensuring the timely and high quality access to services for patients. The Chief should have a demonstrated history of innovation and positive impact, and be comfortable with change management in the context of a move to a new Tower and new Strategic Plan in 2023. As we consider expansion of our interventional services, a Chief with experience in Interventional Radiology is welcomed but not essential. Michael Garron Hospital is a member of East Toronto Health Partners, and values its engagement with community partners. The Chief of Diagnostic Imaging will be dedicated to enhancing the Departmental academic mission in education, mentorship, professionalism, promotion, innovation, and clinical research, particularly with a view to joining the newly announced Scarborough Academy of Medicine and Integrated Health (SAMIH). We place a high value on supporting equity, diversity, and inclusion, as well as wellness.
Reporting to the Chief of Staff & Vice-President Medical and working in a highly collaborative relationship with the administrative Program Director of the DI Service, this individual will be accountable for the quality of care and performance of the Department and the Program. The qualified applicant shall hold an FRCPC, be eligible for licensure in the province of Ontario, have three to five years of management or leadership experience, and be eligible for appointment in the Department of Diagnostic Imaging at the University of Toronto.
