Indian-born Dr. Dhun Noria is a surgical pathologist and Chief of Laboratory Medicine for The Scarborough Hospital-Birchmount Campus. For more than 25 years, she’s played an integral role in the ongoing growth and development of The Scarborough Hospital.


Dr. Noria also chaired the former Metro Toronto District Health Council, responsible for the restructuring of 44 hospitals and the administration of a $17.9-billion budget. The council has since been replaced by the Local Health Integrated Network, Canada’s largest hospital network.

Dr. Noria and her husband are active in many community causes and charities, including The Scarborough Hospital Foundation. She is also a long-standing board member of the Yee-Hong Wellness Centre.


Not only is she an accomplished physician, Dr. Noria is also a successful business woman, owning several medical-related companies in Scarborough. She was awarded the 2004 Business Woman of the Year by the Indo-Canada Chamber of Commerce.


A two-time breast cancer survivor, she understands the fear and emotions experienced by woman faced with fighting this cancer. She was the public face for the Ontario Medical Association Awareness Campaign and has devoted her life to improving the quality of patient care.
