The newly named
Hennick Bridgepoint Hospital
Canada’s largest complex care and rehabilitation hospital gets a new name
A transformative $36 million gift enables Hennick Bridgepoint Hospital to respond to its highest priorities.
Thanks to the single-largest philanthropic gift in Sinai Health’s history, Toronto’s pre-eminent complex care and rehabilitation hospital has a new name.
The former Bridgepoint Active Healthcare is now known as Hennick Bridgepoint Hospital in recognition of a transformational $36 million gift from Jay and Barbara Hennick, long-time leaders and supporters of Sinai Health.
Jay was the Chair of the Board of Directors of Mount Sinai Hospital and Sinai Health from 2013 to 2016 and Chair of the Sinai Health Foundation Board in 2011 and 2012. Barbara currently sits on the Sinai Health Foundation Board of Directors and was President of the Auxiliary from 2005 to 2007.
Hennick Bridgepoint Hospital is the largest organization in Canada to focus exclusively on complex and long-term health conditions through innovative research and world-class rehabilitative care for people in hospital, in the community, and at home.
Hennick Bridgepoint Hospital played a critical role during the pandemic, accepting the largest number of recovering COVID-19 patients transferred from acute care hospitals across the province.
“This gift is truly inspiring,” said Peter Cohen, Chair of the Board of Directors at Sinai Health. “The proceeds of this benefaction are unrestricted, designed to support the highest priority programs at the new Hennick Bridgepoint Hospital, including our renowned Zane Cohen Centre for Digestive Diseases, and to establish a newly created Chairperson's Strategic Initiatives Fund that will enable the organization to respond to its highest needs whenever they arise. We are profoundly grateful to Barbara and Jay for the single-largest philanthropic gift we have ever received.”
