Statement on the passing of Mrs. Teresa Longo

The Joseph Brant Hospital Foundation and Joseph Brant Hospital Foundation are saddened by the passing of Teresa Longo and are incredibly thankful for the impact of the family’s generosity.

Mrs. Longo has a long history with Joseph Brant Hospital including annual holiday visits with Longo’s staff and the Halton Regional Police. During these visits, Mrs. Longo would bring gifts for patients who are in the hospital over the holidays, in addition to a donation to support the hospital’s urgent priorities.

Mrs. Longo’s husband Joseph, co-founder of Longo’s, passed away at JBH in 2008, and a room in the Palliative Care Unit was named in his honour.

In 2015, The Longo’s Family Charitable Foundation made a $500,000 matching gift challenge towards the Our New Era Campaign, in support of the redevelopment and expansion project.

It is truly an honour and privilege to have known Teresa and called her a friend. Her annual visits were a highlight of our holiday season and we will truly miss her smile, sense of humour, and the joy she brought to our hospital and our patients during the holiday season.

We share our heartfelt condolences with the Longo family and everyone that knew her at this time.

    Celebrating Black History Month: Ancilla Ho-Young

    Every February, people across Canada participate in Black History Month to honour the legacy of Black Canadians and their communities.

    The 2022 theme for Black History Month is “February and Forever: Celebrating Black History today and every day,” which focuses on recognizing the daily contributions that Black Canadians make to Canada.

    The Joseph Brant Hospital Foundation is proud to celebrate and recognize Ancilla Ho-Young and her contributions to Joseph Brant Hospital and the Burlington community.

    Ancilla worked at JBH for over 45 years, including her last 10 years as Charge Nurse for Nina’s Place.

     “It was the best job I ever had,” she said. It was difficult but it was satisfying.”

    Since her retirement in 2016, Ancilla has remained active in the community as the president of the Burlington Caribbean Connection.

    She feels that Black History Month is a start, but wishes the accomplishments of black Canadians and people of colour were a deeper part of Canadian history.

    “I feel it is important that people know that Canada has had many black and people of colour who have made incredible contributions,” she said. “The history is important – diversity, equity and inclusion is important.”
