The Scarborough Hospital (TSH) is collecting a few new pieces of information from patients during registration to better understand their unique needs and improve the programs and services TSH provides.
Currently, TSH collects information on gender, age, religious affiliation, languages spoken, and any interpretation services required. Patients will now also be asked about their ethnicity, ability status, length of time in Canada, and family income when they register at the hospital.
All questions are voluntary and patients can choose not to answer any or all of the questions. More information on the additional data collection can be found in our brochure.
