SuperstarHeader

Have you or someone you know received exceptional care from a physician, nurse or staff member at Scarborough Health Network? Share your gratitude with our frontline heroes by making a donation in honour of an SHN Superstar!

The SHN Superstars program gives patients, families, the community and even other SHN staff members the opportunity to recognize a physician, nurse or staff member who has gone above and beyond in caring for our patients by making a gift to the Foundation in their honour.

Not only will you recognize a member of our SHN family for their contributions to the health and well-being of the community, but you will also give back to the lifesaving care and state-of-the-art equipment needed across our three hospitals to keep Scarborough healthy.

Recognizing an SHN Superstar is simple! Click here to use our online donation form and we'll take care of the rest. The Superstar you've honoured with your donation will be surprised with a personalized card, a special certificate and a unique gift that will identify them as one of our SHN Superstars. They will also be celebrated on our virtual SHN Superstars wall below.

It was such an honour to be recognized as an SHN Superstar. To know I made a difference in someone’s life after just a short period of time gives me so much motivation and happiness.

To have someone make a donation in recognition of the care I provided validates the hard work I put in every single day.
