CIBC makes a healthy investment by pledging $500K for the New Humber River 
Hospital 
TORONTO, May 16, 2013 /CNW/ - CIBC today announced a generous pledge of 
$500,000 in support of the NEW Humber River Hospital - North America's first 
fully digital hospital. The new hospital's Cancer Centre waiting room will be 
named in recognition of CIBC's investment in the health of our community. 
Representatives from CIBC, led by Senior Vice President Larry Tomei, gathered 
at the construction site of the new Humber River Hospital on May 16(th) to 
celebrate CIBC's pledge and to take a tour of the new Hospital construction 
site, including the Cancer Centre. 
The new Cancer Centre is projected to receive over 17,000 visits annually. 
From assessment and detection to treatment, Humber's Cancer Program provides 
an integrated approach to care that puts patients and their families first. 
CIBC is committed to working with organizations that support research and 
services for people affected by cancer, as well as with programs focused on 
advocacy and treatment that make a difference in the lives of people living 
with the disease. Over the past 15 years CIBC and its employees have invested 
$135 million nationally in health care and research, with a focus on cancer.
