Remembering Dr. Thomas Bailey, 1951 - 2019. Tom was a truly exceptional man and an integral part of the LTC system. He held a big vision for excellence and saw the ‘long game' of our work in LTC - he embodied the notion of "gentle persistence, relentlessly applied” to making improvements in the system, with professionalism, wisdom, and humour.
Tom would have appreciated that this photo was chosen by our web designer at random as the most "doctor-y".
