Your participation in the most stylish Toronto fashion event of the year will not only be an unforgettable evening, it will help the hospital better meet the dynamic needs of our diverse and growing population.

Funds raised from Heart of Fashion 2016 will support the construction of a new full-service, state-of-the-art Interventional Radiology Suite that will expand our capacity to treat patients, while reducing wait times and improving overall health outcomes.

Interventional Radiology is a highly specialized subset of medical imaging and surgery and uses high resolution imaging to diagnose and treat diseases affecting nearly every organ system. Each year, we care for over 4,000 patients using Interventional Radiology procedures and benefit patients from all areas of care, including the critical areas of Emergency, Surgery, Intensive Care and Cancer Care.

Compared to conventional surgeries, Interventional Radiology procedures help patients experience shorter hospital stays, recover faster and have improved long-term health outcomes.
