Dr. Morris Mymko

Dr. Mymko has provided care to many patients and their families in Thunder Bay and the region. His current work in retirement is to support the Adolescent Mental Health Program at the Health Sciences Centre. It’s hard to believe that someone retired is on the unit at 7 am each day.  Dr. Mymko is a tireless advocate for the care of these unknown patients and their families. He is also a tireless volunteer of the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Foundation, celebrating his 20th anniversary as a volunteer this year. He is an integral part of the organizing committee for the Thunder Bay Regional Golf Classic. This tournament has raised over 320 thousand dollars in support of excellence in health care. Because of this group of volunteers, our Health Science Centre is equipped with state of the art equipment.  Dr. Mymko also sits on the board of directors where he offers invaluable perspective to grants, funding and the family care grants programme. These two programmes ensure due diligence for the disbursement of donor funds to programmes of the Health Sciences Centre. He offers physician perspective as the group is largely comprised of lay people. He is an advocate for all areas of health care and gives freely of his time. These committees rely heavily on Dr. Mymko’s input and insights.
