Caring for our tiniest patients

When planning to have a baby, few people consider the possibility of needing additional care or support after delivery. But the reality is that some babies are born premature or may have a serious health concern and require specialized care before they can go home. That’s where the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) comes in. […]


What having a baby in the NICU taught me

With more than 700 babies coming through the NICU every year, our teams have a lot of experience supporting families through what can be a stressful and critical time. We asked three moms whose babies spent time in our NICU about their experience — and what their advice is for other parents in the same situation. […]

It’s recommended right after birth and then on an ongoing basis to keep the baby calm and warm, for bonding between the new parent and baby and […]

This model of feeding is driven by infants

Newborn feeding is complex, and it’s an especially demanding and skilled task for the fragile, premature and/or critically ill newborn. Learning how to feed can be the last hurdle for an infant before they can be discharged home – it can prolong their NICU stay for a substantial amount of time. In order to better […]


New clinic helps babies get home sooner

When Ponam gave birth to baby Kaia in May, they both required extra support – Kaia was underweight and Ponam was having trouble breastfeeding. As patients, they were referred to a brand new resource available at St. Joe’s – our Newborn Clinic. The Newborn Clinic supports babies who are discharged but need a final next-day […]

This represents the culmination of a months’ long process that began when the […]

Earlier today, the three boards, the Sisters of St. Joseph of Toronto as well as Catholic Health Sponsors of Ontario formally and unanimously approved our integration proposal. This follows the endorsement, almost […]


How to take care of your skin this summer

As summer rolls around, many people start planning cottage weekends, patio evenings and backyard barbeques. But while we’re enjoying being outdoors, it’s important to make sure we’re protecting our skin – sun exposure can cause long-term damage that will affect us down the road. We caught up with Dr. Erin Dahlke, a dermatologist at St. […]

St. Joe’s surgeon develops app to help patients navigate surgical journey

“I found something.” It’s been four years since Rick Williamson heard his doctor say those words, but he will never forget the moment he did. Rick had completed a routine examination of his digestive tract when his doctor asked him to come back in a week for an update. “I was so anxious, I couldn’t […]
