Bring us the impossible

At Sunnybrook, we take on the cases others have labelled as impossible to fix, treat or heal. To us, impossible is not insurmountable – it's a challenge we meet with expertise and compassion. We're on the cutting edge of health care. Bring us your worst and you will find our best. This is where impossible becomes I’m Possible.
