Treasures of Baycrest

Since our inception in 1918, Baycrest’s greatest treasures have been our people. Because of the tremendous commitment of our donors, staff, volunteers, clients and friends, Baycrest has emerged as a global leader in aging and brain health.

Treasures of Baycrest – an exhibit located in the Silverman Garden Court of Baycrest Hospital – showcases the faces and stories of these remarkable men and women who have contributed to Baycrest’s transformation over the years.

Launched in 2004 with the generous support of Baycrest benefactor Joseph Gottdenker, Treasures of Baycrest pays tribute to the many people deserving of this honour. The stories and photographs of past honourees can be viewed on a computer touch screen beside the exhibit.

If you have a story to share about someone who deserves to be a Treasure of Baycrest, please contact Michelle Hoidas via email at, or by phone at 416-785-2500 ext. 3301. Thank you!
