Dr. Bob Howard Biography:

President and CEO of St. Michael’s Hospital since 2009, Bob is a cardiologist known for bringing a comprehensive quality improvement (QI) program to the downtown Toronto academic hospital. He embedded a QI philosophy in the hospital’s strategic plan, championing work related to the six Institute of Medicine dimensions of quality. This effort has set the benchmark for hospitals, and has allowed staff to continue to foster and build a culture of quality improvement that spreads outside of the institution’s walls.

On Aug. 1, 2017, Bob became interim president and CEO of the new health network formed when Providence Healthcare, St. Joseph’s Health Centre and St. Michael’s Hospital integrated as one corporate entity with a single governance and management model. The health network spans the full spectrum of care from primary, secondary community, tertiary and quaternary care services to post-acute through rehabilitation, palliative care and long-term care.

Prior to his appointment as president and CEO of St. Michael’s, Bob was the chief medical officer and executive vice-president of Programs and Education at St. Michael’s. Bob has an undergraduate degree in Industrial Engineering from the University of Toronto, a medical degree from McMaster University and an Executive MBA from the Richard Ivey School of Business. He is a professor of Medicine at the University of Toronto and is a board member for MaRS Innovation and the Hospital Diagnostic Imaging Repository Service. During his tenure as board chair of the Michener Institute, he helped oversee its transition to UHN.
