At SHN, our frontline staff are working hard to lead the community through the COVID-19 pandemic. Today on May 1, Doctors’ Day, we’re celebrating one of many doctors who’s gone above-and-beyond to support their colleagues during these challenging times.
Long-time SHN supporter Dr. Dhun Noria is leading the way to keep the frontlines at Birchmount fed and comfortable with a $5,000 donation to stock the hospital’s staff lounge. Dr. Noria’s generous gift will keep the lounge filled with snacks and refreshments for the next two weeks. Her previous giving to SHN was recognized with the naming of Farokh and Dhun Noria Laboratory at the General and Birchmount hospitals.
Following in Dr. Noria’s lead, a number of other local supporters have stepped forward to keep the lounge supplied for an additional five weeks. With the help of Deputy Toronto Mayor and City Councillor Michael Thompson, we’re thrilled to share that the following donors have also supported our frontline staff through this initiative:

On behalf of SHN Foundation, thank you to Dr. Noria and all of our lounge sponsors. Your support goes a long way towards keeping our frontline staff feeling motivated, energized and appreciated as they continue the fight against COVID-19.
As well, in honour of Doctors’ Day, thank you to all of our SHN doctors for your commitment to Scarborough and to keeping our community safe and healthy.
