A Global Powerhouse in Research and Care

Located in Toronto inner city, St. Michael’s Hospital is a global powerhouse in research and care. It is an international leader in neurosurgery, complex cardiac care, multiple sclerosis, kidney transplantation, HIV/AIDS, ophthalmology, diabetes, cystic fibrosis and the use of artificial intelligence in health care. St. Michael’s relentless physicians, surgeons, scientists and staff take on some of the world’s toughest health challenges, digging deep to find solutions to intractable medical problems. And true to the hospital’s history, they advocate on behalf of those whose health is complicated by life circumstances.

St. Michael’s MAP Centre for Urban Health Solutions is a world-leading research centre whose mission is to mitigate the negative effects of poverty on complex urban health, through big-picture research and street-level solutions. MAP is changing how the world understands the health consequences of social inequality in cities across Canada.

"Large cities such as Toronto are facing complex urban health issues,” said Paul Genest, senior vice-president of Power Corporation. "The scientists at MAP are addressing these urgent problems with innovative community partnerships and sustainable policies. St. Michael’s Hospital exemplifies compassionate community care, and Power Corporation is proud to support its path-breaking work.”

This gift from Power Corporation has allowed us to respond quickly to situations like COVID-19. It has also enabled us to create the Solutions for Healthy Cities Symposium, which was an opportunity to really scale up our research across Canada.
