Toronto Plastic Surgeon Supports First Digital Hospital In North America

TORONTO, Dec. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Construction is currently underway on North America's first fully digital hospital, and Toronto Plastic Surgeon Dr. Jerome Edelstein has pledged $25,000 to its development. Located at Keele Street and Wilson Avenue in Toronto's northwest end, the new facility of the Humber River Regional Hospital aims to revolutionize health care. It combines state-of-the-art technologies and lean design to optimize the focus on patient care, most importantly, because it will allow care providers more time at the bedside of patients by streamlining and automating processes. 

"Being involved in both public and private medicine, I get to see firsthand the power that sufficient funding can have on patient well being," Dr. Edelstein states. "Having devoted my life to medicine, I'm excited that Canada is going to be at the forefront of healthcare with this new hospital."

As Head of the Division of Plastic Surgery at Humber River Regional Hospital, Dr. Edelstein oversees a team of 9 active plastic surgeons and over 4,700 patients annually. The new facility will house a large Plastic Surgery Division.

"I couldn't be happier to use money from my private cosmetic practice to give back to the community and help deliver a level of care that will be unsurpassed. We take great care with each and every single patient at Edelstein Cosmetic. With the new facilities at the hospital, public health patients will be able to enjoy some of those same benefits and attention as my private practice. It's an important step for medicine in Toronto, one that will impact the whole of the country and set a precedent for great patient care. As a doctor, I wouldn't feel right standing on the sidelines for this historic occasion."

Dr. Edelstein's pledge supports the hospital at which he routinely performs necessary plastic and reconstructive surgeries.
