Biographical history

The integration of the Finance Departments of the Toronto General and Toronto Western sites of The Toronto Hospital (TTH) was completed in 1986. This involved the integrated management of the Payroll, Research accounting, and Foundation accounting departments, as well as the adoption of common reporting and budgeting methodologies.

The Finance Directorate’s mission was:
<blockquote>“…to provide efficient, timely, high quality accounting, fiduciary, financial reporting, analysis and other services that, in collaboration with other directorates, would enable the [Toronto Hospital] to achieve its overall mission of providing exemplary patient care and fostering excellence in health care delivery, teaching and research.”</blockquote>

The first Vice-President, Finance was Mr. J. Elliott (1986-1991), previously the Director of Finance for the Toronto General Hospital. The position of Vice-President, Finance was subsequently held by Ms. D. Arsenault (1992-1993), Mr. John A.B. Callum (1993-1997), and Ms. Susan A. Connor (1998- ). By 1997 the Vice-President, Finance was also Chief Financial Officer.
