Unity Health Toronto’s Virtual Memorial

Unity Health Toronto has created this Virtual Memorial to support the loved ones, families and friends of those who have died at our three sites, St. Joseph’s Health Centre, St. Michael’s Hospital and Providence Healthcare. This memorial is designed to offer comfort and support for those suffering a loss. As part of wraparound care, the video includes contact information for anyone who watches the video and would like references for additional local support.

We share this memorial with hope that it helps those grieving with their healing journey.
