St Michael’s Hospital in downtown Toronto was founded in 1892 by the Sisters of St Joseph. Go in the 30 Bond Street entrance to see masonry from the original building plus a mini museum detailing the hospital’s gloried past.
A nurse’s uniform from 1952 surrounded by cafe tables where you can sit and write or read. If you’re lucky you might hear the Metropolitan Church carillonneur playing beautiful music across the way on the church’s collection of 54 bells.

Secondhand St. Michael statue in the Victoria Street lobby shares a connection with Michelangelo.
A great hospital with some wonderful doctors and nurses and also a glorious past. Check out the museum, sit for a coffee, perhaps listen to the bells that have soothed St. Mike’s patients over the decades.
