In 1918, our community imagined the beginnings of a place that could help older adults, and from imagination sprung reality. For more than 100 years, the Baycrest we have come to know - the one relied upon by thousands of patients, residents, clients and families daily - has been built up by our dedicated staff, clinicians, volunteers and community of supporters to become what we are today: a world leader in the geriatric health and residential care sector and the field of aging and brain health. Together, we have created a place that is renowned for our work in care, research, education and innovation. For a long time, our value as a campus that contains a hospital, a long- term care home and a leading research institute has remained primarily local and provincial in nature. As we've grown, the recognized value of our research and innovative care practices for the seniors' population has quietly – and steadily - increased both nationally and internationally. Now, it is time for Baycrest to help even more people – to move our expertise beyond a place or location. It is time to build and expand upon what has come before and share it more broadly with those in need across Canada and worldwide. 2 2020 BAYCREST IMPACT BRINGING OUR EXPERTISE TO MORE PEOPLE. Dr. William Reichman, President and CEO Baycrest
