- Healthcare and Hospitals

Healthcare and Hospitals
Beyond the fact that Hospitals represent over 50% of Tenet’s revenues, we realize that meeting the healthcare needs of our aging population will require creative approaches and community support. Besides leading Public-Private-Partnership projects, such as our Pandemic/Emergency Preparedness & Response toolkit, Tenet also supports the fundraising efforts of several hospital foundations, including the following:
- Mount Sinai Hospital Foundation
- Southlake Regional Health Centre Foundation
- St. Michael’s Hospital Foundation
- Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre Foundation
- York Central Hospital Foundation
ISID and ProMED
Of particular interest to Healthcare Providers, and related to our Pandemic Preparedness toolkit, Tenet also supports and promotes ProMED, the Program for Monitoring Emerging Diseases, an electronic outbreak reporting system that monitors infectious diseases globally.
ProMED is a service of ISID, the International Society for Infectious Diseases, and serves as a central site for news, updates, and discussions of outbreaks of emerging and re-emerging diseases that affect human health. ProMED-mail provides up-to-date information on disease outbreaks around the world, seven days a week.
The Bruce Trail, Canada’s oldest and longest footpath, provides the only public access to the magnificent Niagara Escarpment, a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve. The Bruce Trail Association is a charitable organization committed to establishing a conservation corridor containing a public footpath along the Niagara Escarpment, in order to protect its natural ecosystems and to promote environmentally responsible public access.
Tenet encourages its employees to enjoy the Bruce Trail, and to support the Association, by contributing 50% of the annual membership fees.
Youth sports organizations, usually run by volunteers, play an important role in the life and well being of a community, providing healthy alternatives for youth to develop into caring, responsible adults. Tenet is proud to support several community sports groups, including:
- Martingrove Bantam 2009 Express – City Champions of the 2009 Toronto Baseball Association Bantam A !!!

World Community Grid’s mission is to create the world’s largest public computing grid to allow organizations and individuals around the world to contribute their unused computer time to tackle projects that benefit humanity.
World Community Grid is making technology available only to public and not-for-profit organizations to use in humanitarian research that might otherwise not be completed due to the high cost of the computer infrastructure required in the absence of a public grid. View 2-page summary.
