Annual General Meeting minutes

The first Annual General Meeting for the University Health Network occurred on September 15th, 1999. Series includes the contents of a binder labeled “Annual General Meeting Minutes Jun 1947-2005”. This binder included minutes of the University Health Network’s Annual General Meetings (1999-2005) as well as the minutes of the Annual Meetings of the Subscribers of its predecessor corporations The Toronto Hospital (1987-1998) and the Toronto General Hospital (1947-1986). The original purpose of these meetings was to elect Trustees. The annual meeting was extended to several meetings in 1947 and 1949 due to a lack of nominations. Minutes from September 17, 1997 are missing. Most minutes are signed originals.

Caring Together

Series consists of copies of Caring Together, The Toronto Hospital’s staff newsletter after the merger between OCI/PMH and TTH. This newsletter combined the news and information formerly reported in the separate publications OCI Post and Caring. The design of the newsletter reflected the new partnership with both logos being combined into one and the colours of the separate hospitals (yellow and blue) seen merging together.

The inaugural issue of Caring Together was first published on September 19, 1997 as Vol 1, Number 1. When The Toronto Hospital changed its name to University Health Network in 1999, Caring Together continued with the same name and volume and issue numbering. The only change was the subheading which now read “A newsletter for and about the staff of University Health Network”. The last issue as Caring Together was Volume 4, Number 45 from November 6, 2000. Beginning with the November 13th issue, the newsletter changed its name to UHN News but continued with the same numbering.

Issues were arranged chronologically by volume in separate binders. Some issues of ITF News, from the Integration Task Force, have been inserted. There are quite a few missing issues of Caring Together. From Volume 2, issues 26, 30, 36 and 37 are missing. From Volume 3, issues 2, 4, 13-17, 19-21, 23, 25, 27, 32, 36, 38, 40, 43-44, and 49 are missing. From Volume 4, issues 6-7, 10, 17-18, 20, 25-30, 33-34, and 43 are missing.

There is no Volume 2, issue 3 in existence. During printing what should have been Volume 2, issue 3 was incorrectly labeled Volume 2, issue 4.
