The Ottawa Hospital (TON) is ground zero when it comes to treating people infected with COVID-19. For more than one year, its doctors, nurses and medical staff have toiled day and night to save lives in this worsening pandemic. As vaccines continue to roll out, the president and CEO of the hospital will speak at the Mayor’s Breakfast on April 29.
Cameron Love took the leadership role on July 1, 2020. With a $1-billion budget and more than 1,200 employees, TON is considered to be one of Canada’s largest academic health sciences centres. A key project in Love’s mandate will be advancing the region’s new “super hospital,” which is slated to be built later this decade at the former site of the Sir John Carling Building. Love will be interviewed by local media personality and OBJ founder Mark Sutcliffe.

The hospital’s core values of ‘Compassion, Teamwork, Commitment to Quality and Respect for the Individual,’ are bolstered by Cameron’s passion and integrity, which he has applied in the health-care sector since 1998.
