It is with heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of Queensway Carleton Hospital’s beloved President & CEO, Tom Schonberg.
With his wife by his side, Tom was rushed by ambulance to Queensway Carleton Hospital late Monday evening, and unfortunately he passed away shortly after.
As President and CEO of Queensway Carleton Hospital for 20 years, Tom was a steady, guiding hand, and deeply devoted leader — steering our west-Ottawa hospital through many seasons of expansion and growth into the regional leader that it is today, admired and respected across Ottawa and surrounding regions, and in the province at large.
Honoured and respected by colleagues and peers, Tom Schonberg carried a mighty weight for the good of the community he called home. A man of integrity, respect and care, his achievements are due high praise, though his character never sought it. His pride in Queensway Carleton Hospital ran deep, yet he led each step with humility.
The entire Queensway Carleton Hospital and Foundation family offers their deepest condolences to Tom’s family, Ene and Alex.
In Tom’s memory, donations to the Queensway Carleton Hospital Foundation would be appreciated. Condolences, memories or donations may be made here.
