Simon Hillier, MD
Interim Chair, Department of Anesthesiology
"An operation is a stressful time for a patient and their family. As anesthesiologists, we have a very short time in which to establish a rapport, create a climate of trust and help them safely navigate their procedure and recovery. Looking after patients and seeing them do well is a rewarding part of my job.
I do the best I can to support a healthy work-life balance for my colleagues. I understand that employees have different needs and priorities. I strive to create a feeling that we are an inclusive department and that all of our colleagues are valued. I enjoy being a part of a great team of dedicated providers and seeing members of our department be successful."
"I am an advocate for our patients and our department."Simon Hillier, MD
