Everyone at St. Michael's can speak about the hospital's values and how both patients and staff are treated with dignity and respect. As CEO Bob Howard has said, "I don't know of another institution where that would be the case. From the clinical and housekeeping staff to the the engineering and administrative team, St. Michael's is a place where everyday, committed people feel that what they do matters."

St. Michael’s image captures its reputation for compassion and caring along with its reality as a modern, sophisticated, and innovative organization.

Inspired Care. Inspiring Science. These words emphasize equally our three roles – a hospital providing compassionate care, and a teaching and research organization committed to moving knowledge and discovery from the classroom and the lab to the bedside.

At St. Michael's, we have a rich tradition of serving the needs of patients with our specialized clinical programs and services. With the development of the Keenan Research Centre and the Li Ka Shing International Healthcare Education Centre to create the Li Ka Shing Knowledge Institute, we have spread our wings to become a global resource for healthcare practice and discovery. The deliberate choice of the words "care" "inspire" and "science" truly reflects our vision to champion the never-ending quest for a healthier world through our culture of caring and discovery.

In choosing to be known simply as St. Michael's, the potential impact of our collective efforts as a hospital committed to research, education and care is clear. Together, we will pursue our agenda for a bold future.
