All In for SickKids

SickKids needs a new hospital. And Toronto is All In.

Our Digital Revolution

SickKids does away with the disjointed systems and paper charts in exchange for a seamless, state-of-the-art health information system.

Partners in Mental Health

To meet Ontario's surging demand for child and youth mental health care, we're going to need all our friends – and make new ones.

From birthdays to first steps, SickKids is often the backdrop to our patients' and families' lives. In this section, we celebrate the everyday moments – big and small – of the children, families, staff and volunteers who make up the fabric of life at SickKids.
Follow us on Facebook and Instagram to catch more of our everyday moments as they happen!

Hospital Financials

Hospital financial highlights for the year ended March 31, 2018

SickKids is committed to operational efficiency, transparency and accountability. We support evidence-based decisions to enhance our financial health, conduct business under the principle of fiscal prudence and act with integrity and good judgment when allocating resources.

The hospital continues to maintain its financial health. Excess of revenues over expenses contribute positively to the hospital's net assets, which are then reserved for specific purposes or reinvested into operations and capital investments aligned with the hospital's strategic priorities.
