Patient Care

Medical Assistance in Dying (MAID)

As an organization sponsored by the Catholic Health Sponsors of Ontario, St. Michael's Hospital is committed to treat each person we serve with respect, dignity and compassion – values deeply rooted in our mission as a Catholic health-care provider.

St. Michael’s does not provide medical assistance in dying.

If a St. Michael’s patient wants to learn about their options for end-of-life care, including medical assistance in dying, we will provide them with information necessary for making a sound decision. In some cases, this may require the safe and timely transfer of care of the patient to another institution.
