The Best of Healthcare. The Worst of Healthcare.

There are two health-care systems in Canada. Not just the public and private ones. But the Toronto system and the...well, let’s call it The Rest of Canada system. If you happen to live in the Greater Toronto Area, the 6.2 million of you are luckier than the other 31.8 million Canadians who don’t. Got cancer? Get treated at Princess Margaret Cancer Centre, one of the Top 10 oncology centres in the world. Heart disease? The Peter Munk Cardiac Centre, one of the top heart hospitals in the world.  If you’re a sick child, or their parent, take them to Sick Kids, the best children’s hospital anywhere. Need physical rehab? There’s the  Toronto Rehabilitation Institute whose research arm is also the best in the world.

Just plain really sick? Head to Toronto General Hospital, the 4th best hospital on earth, one below Mass General in Boston and one above Johns Hopkins in Baltimore.

With superlatives like these, it’s little wonder that of the 10 Top hospitals in Canada, 6 are in Toronto including the top 4.
