Passionate about making a positive difference in the lives of others, the new CEO will be a dynamic, and values-driven leader who will drive revenue growth and community engagement in support of West Park Healthcare Centre’s mission. The successful candidate will combine an innovative business acumen with creative storytelling to help others see the impact of the incredible work done at West Park.

Critical deliverables for the CEO include leading the Foundation team to meet and exceed a $5M+ annual target; completing phase one of the $80M Get Your life Back Campaign while setting the Foundation up for future success in the completion of phase two; and strategically building the Foundations brand and profile in a manner that further supports annual and strategic objectives.

A fearless networker and enthusiastic champion, the successful candidate will proactively reach out to potential supporters and will collaborate with internal partners and volunteers to grow the prospect pool and engage donors.

This is an opportune time to join the West Park Foundation as we are on the precipice of seeing the completion of the new hospital building, which will allow the new Foundation CEO to capitalize on fundraising momentum to drive support for ongoing and longer-term objectives.


West Park Healthcare Centre is building an integrated campus of care located near Jane and Weston Road in northwest Toronto. West Park has more than 1000 employees and 40+ physicians, plus the support of over 200 dedicated volunteers.

West Park Healthcare Centre helps patients get their lives back by providing specialized rehabilitative and complex care after a life‐altering illness or injury such as lung disease, amputation, stroke, and traumatic musculoskeletal injuries. In addition to 169 beds for continuing complex care, and 130 bed for rehabilitation and community living, West Park also has 200 beds for long-term care, helping the community that it serves.


West Park’s new hospital will open its doors to patients in late 2023. Our new facility is at the heart of a stunning campus transformation that will enable us to continue providing the highest quality specialized rehabilitative and complex continuing care and meet the rising demand for our services. With the external structure of our new hospital largely complete, the interior spaces are now taking shape.

Take a look at the videos spotlighting the different areas of construction, and how they will benefit our patients. You can also learn more about our new hospital on our Campus Development page.

Our patients face some of life’s most difficult health challenges, including severe trauma, amputation, chronic lung disease, and spasticity, which is a debilitating symptom of stroke, cerebral palsy, and multiple sclerosis. They work hard to get back to their lives, supported by our skilled, caring team, and they deserve the very best care on their difficult journey.

Our new hospital will:

The new West Park will make great use of our beautiful, expansive grounds, visually integrating the indoor rehabilitative space with the invigorating outdoor environments. Each patient floor will have an outdoor terrace; the campus will have gardens, trails, and outdoor, multi-use rehabilitation spaces to help patients learn to navigate all types of terrain. This design celebrates West Park’s extraordinary setting, allowing patients to benefit from the healing power of nature.


West Park Foundation has been an integral partner with West Park Healthcare Centre for almost four decades. The Foundation has partnered with the Centre to expand programs and facilities, support clinical research and education, and acquire new medical equipment.

West Park’s vision is to be a world-class centre of rehabilitative and complex continuing care. The support of our community is now more important than ever, as we build for the future, supporting innovative methods of treatment, leading-edge research, and excellence in patient care.

In June 2018, the Centre received final approvals on a massive new construction project valued at $1.2 billion that will include the construction of a six-story hospital overlooking the Humber River valley. The new hospital, scheduled to open in 2023, will include a 20% increase in inpatient beds and a significant increase in outpatient care space to serve double the current patient volume.

Today, we are in the midst of the largest fundraising endeavour in the history of our hospital: the Get Your Life Back Campaign. This campaign is raising $80 million towards the capital costs of our new hospital so we can continue providing the very best care for the growing number of people who need it. The campaign will be tackled in 2 phases, and $30M has been raised to date.
