Administrative history

There are two fundamental elements to the role of the University Health Network's Board of Trustees: decision-making and oversight. The decision-making function is exercised with respect to the formulation (with management) of strategic policies, strategic goals and approval of significant actions; the oversight function concerns the review of management decisions, the adequacy of systems and controls and the implementation of strategic policies.

The board establishes formal delegations of authority, defining the limits of management’s power and responsibility and delegating to management certain powers to manage the operation of the hospital. There are also statutory limitations specifying responsibilities of the board that cannot be delegated. Responsibilities not delegated to management remain with the board.

The Board of Trustees at the University Health Network is responsible for maintaining accountability and providing stewardship. The Board of Trustees consists of both appointed and elected trustees. Each trustee’s position is for a term of three years. Appointed trustees initially included two from Cancer Care Ontario and four from the University of Toronto.

There are three advisory committees to UHN's Board of Trustees: Finance and Audit Committee, Quality Committee and Governance/Nominating Committee.

The position of Chair of the Board of Trustees has been held by Fredrik S. Eaton (1999-2000), Anthony S. Fell (2000-2005), and Philip Orsino (2005-2009), John Mulvihill (2009- ).

Scope and content

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.
