Critical-care unit pioneer 'driving force,' innovator
By Mary-Jane EGAN, Free Press Reporter, Tues., October 10, 2006
Dr. Bill SIBBALD, founder of critical-care medicine in Canada and a visionary who helped establish London's critical-care trauma unit, was wooed by hospitals across North America but chose to spend most of his career in London.
SIBBALD died September 14 after a battle with cancer. He was SIBBALD came to London in 1964 to attend the University of Western Ontario and made London his home for more than 30 years before leaving in 2000 to become chief of medicine at Toronto's Sunnybrook and Women's College Health Sciences Centre.
Dr. Murray GIROTTI, medical director of trauma care at London Health Sciences Centre, remembers SIBBALD as a key force in internal medicine and trauma who attracted trainees from around the world.
"Even though it's called the Richard Ivey Critical Care Trauma Centre, the lifeblood and driving force for the establishment of that centre at old Victoria (hospital) and the new Victoria really was Bill SIBBALD," GIROTTI said.
"He had job offers from all over Canada and the United States, but he really wanted to stay in Canada to influence the system here."
SIBBALD graduated from Western in 1970 and joined University of Western Ontario as chair of the critical- care program in 1977 after two years of training at Detroit's trauma unit.
He was president of the Canadian Critical Care Society and helped create a national training program in critical care in 1982.
SIBBALD also chaired the section of critical care medicine of the Ontario Medical Association and helped design a distinctive fee code with Ontario Health Insurance Plan for Ontario physicians dealing with critically ill patients.
SIBBALD put London on the map as the only Canadian hospital participating in a worldwide initiative to come up with a safe and effective blood substitute for such critically ill patients as cancer, stroke and heart attack victims.
"Bill's research interests spanned a wide spectrum, from looking for blood substitutes to understanding the effect of infection on your body. He did a lot of tremendously innovative things to support critical care," said GIROTTI.
On a personal level, GIROTTI described SIBBALD as "a real character."
"We loved working with Bill. He was an absolutely crazy guy to work with. He had endless energy, a great sense of humour, but you couldn't mistake his dedication to excellence in patient care, research and education."
Dr. Frank RUTLEDGE, chair of University of Western Ontario's critical-care program and site chief of the critical- care trauma centre at Victoria Hospital, first met SIBBALD in 1979 and counted him as both a colleague and a friend.
"He was a golfing buddy," said RUTLEDGE, who accompanied SIBBALD on an annual trek to Tampa, Florida, for a golf trip for London's then Memorial Boys and Girls Club.
"He was demanding," adds RUTLEDGE, who used to counsel people on how to "survive working for him."
His advice: "If he mentioned something once, ignore it. If it comes up a second time, start to pay attention. If it comes up a third time, it's probably worth pursing. And that's because he would have 100 ideas an hour and only those that kept recurring were worth pursuing because you couldn't possibly pursue all the ideas he had."
In an interview with The Free Press in 2000 when SIBBALD accepted the Toronto position, he spoke of his love for the Forest City.
"My heart will always be in London," he said.
SIBBALD is survived by his wife, Connie, and five children.

William SIBBALD, Doctor And Educator (1946-2006)
Physician-in-chief at Sunnybrook and Women's College hospitals in Toronto was an infuriatingly single-minded visionary who guided the city through the severe acute respiratory syndrome crisis and helped alter the nature of intensive-care treatment in Canada
By Douglas McARTHUR, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S6
Toronto -- Bill SIBBALD was an ideas machine. Strategies, suggestions and potential solutions cascaded from his lips at the Ontario teaching hospitals where he built an international reputation, at global medical conferences and around the family dinner table.
His ideas helped to change the face of intensive-care treatment in Canada, to shape the way health care is delivered in Ontario, to guide Toronto through the severe acute respiratory syndrome crisis of 2003 and to inspire a new generation of critical-care professionals.
Dr. William John SIBBALD was director of critical care at Victoria Hospital in London, Ontario, and a professor at the University of Western Ontario from 1977 until 2000. Then he became physician-in-chief at Toronto's Sunnybrook and Women's College Health Sciences Centre and a professor of medicine at the University of Toronto. In both roles, he was a physician, teacher, leader, mentor and researcher.
"I used to tell people who didn't know him they should ignore something the first time he mentioned it," says Doctor Frank RUTLEDGE, who heads the critical-care programs at Victoria Hospital and Western. "They should pay attention the second time. The third time they should put it at the top of their pile. He threw out so many ideas, if you tried to work on everything the first time it was mentioned, you'd never get anything done." Doctor Steven SHUMAK, deputy physician-in-chief, says many of Doctor SIBBALD's ideas involved medical informatics, the application of computers and information systems to improve patient care and education.
Colleagues remember him as gruff but generous, an infuriatingly single-minded visionary who smoked heavily in his early years to burn off excess energy, but who gave it up after an operation for salivary gland cancer. He was an advocate for those he worked with, giving them his undivided attention in private meetings. In the workplace or on the golf course, he strove for perfection, but often interrupted a game to respond to a BlackBerry message. He occasionally told off-colour jokes and he followed hockey religiously, even when out of the country.
Dr. SIBBALD started work before dawn, even on weekends, so he could be home to spend time with his wife and five children. He coached his sons in hockey, attended his children's sporting events and told them all he was their "biggest cheerleader."
Over his career, Doctor SIBBALD wrote about 250 articles and editorials, more than 70 book chapters and some major textbooks on critical care. He was invited to give some 550 lectures in 16 countries. He held many positions with medical and critical-care associations.
Dr. Ron HOLLIDAY, a general surgeon at Victoria Hospital and a professor of surgery at Western, says Doctor SIBBALD was often thinking of issues five or 10 years down the road. And he always knew who to approach to get around the system. "We called it the SIBBALD end run," he says.
Critical-care experts around the world knew him as a friend and a trendsetter. "He was a fantastic scientist and a great clinician respected by all," says Doctor Jean-Louis Vincent, a professor of intensive care at the Free University of Brussels. "He could always ask the right question and raise the appropriate issue in any kind of debate or scientific discussion."
Bill SIBBALD, as his Friends called him, was the middle of three children of Jack SIBBALD, a banker, and Shirley (née STONE) who grew up in a suburb of Guelph, Ontario As a boy, he played basketball, football, badminton and hockey.
Gale KAY, now a retired Presbyterian minister, babysat him when he was about 12. "He was quite clear that he was going to be a doctor," she says, "not that he wanted to be a doctor, but that he was going to be one."
He was graduated from medical school at the University of Western Ontario in 1970 and stayed on to complete a residency in internal medicine in 1974. That was the year he married Connie ECKERSLEY, a nurse he worked with in intensive care.
From 1974 to 1976, he did a fellowship in critical-care trauma at Wayne State University School of Medicine, in Detroit. The specialty was in its infancy in Canada at the time, and he returned to London as one of the country's few experts in the field.
At the time, Victoria Hospital had become "a massive zone of deferred maintenance," according to Doctor David NAYLOR, president of the University of Toronto and a long-time friend. Doctor Adam LINTON, the hospital's physician-in-chief, put the young Doctor SIBBALD in charge of the intensive-care department where he overcame professional turf wars and put together a team of specialists in medicine, surgery and anesthesia. Doctor Trevor LOBB, an anesthetist at the hospital, says Doctor SIBBALD helped change "a glorified recovery room" into a critical-care trauma centre that treated patients flown in by helicopter and that trained fellows who came from around the world. In 1976, he made the news for using an armed forces pressure suit to control massive bleeding in a patient. A year later, he was in the headlines for telling a medical conference in France that the common practice of lowering the head of a critically ill shock victim might actually have detrimental effects.
In one highly publicized incident, Doctor SIBBALD, accompanied by Dr. HOLLIDAY, went to court in the middle of the night seeking permission for a blood transfusion to save the life of a Jehovah's witness boy. The judge bypassed the family's religious objections by making the boy a ward of the court, allowing the procedure to go ahead.
Much of Doctor SIBBALD's research centred on sepsis (disease-causing agents in the blood), trauma, blood substitutes, and ethical issues involving life-support and end of life. In later years, he branched out into the field of health-care policy and delivery.
For many years, he used sheep to study infections in people. "In our research lab at Victoria Hospital, you could hear the sheep baaing," Doctor HOLLIDAY says. Doctor SIBBALD introduced infections into the animals and studied the effects. Then he treated the sheep, so they didn't have to be destroyed.
He served as co-chairman of a Working Group on Critical Care in Ontario, which presented its findings to the province's health ministry in 1991. Over the years, he received many honours, including a distinguished investigator award from the American College of Critical Care Medicine in 1998.
Dr. SIBBALD turned down many job offers in the United States, and in 2000 he moved to Toronto as Sunnybrook's physician-in-chief. That put him on the front lines when many of the patients from the 2003 epidemic of severe acute respiratory syndrome ended up at Sunnybrook. He threw his back out while dealing with the crisis, so his bed at home became the command post where he kept in contact with officials from hospitals, government and the military.
In one phone call, he told Doctor Tom STEWARD/STEWART/STUART, director of critical care at Toronto's Mount Sinai and University Health Network, that his staff was starting to become ill. "He's a strong man, but he broke down crying," said Doctor STEWARD/STEWART/STUART. "It struck me how soft and sensitive he is."
Two back operations followed. Doctor SIBBALD returned to work after each of them, even though he had to hobble around the hallways.
After the severe acute respiratory syndrome emergency ended, Ontario's ministry of health set up a Critical Care Steering Committee. Doctor SIBBALD and Doctor STEWARD/STEWART/STUART were among its members. Many of Doctor SIBBALD's ideas showed up in the report and are now being implemented, Doctor STEWARD/STEWART/STUART says.
In November, 2004, Doctor SIBBALD was diagnosed with colon cancer. He carried on working and, hoping for a remedy, sought treatment at Roswell Park Cancer Institute in Buffalo. In early September, he was told the end was near. He resigned as Sunnybrook's chief of medicine on September 5 and spent the following week as a patient in the hospital.
Staff members still came to him for advice. Doctor Andreas LAUPACIS, now the director of a research institute at Toronto's Saint Michael's Hospital, asked for his opinion on an upcoming debate. "His eyes lit up," Doctor LAUPACIS says. "His energy came back. He said, 'Look at this article and that article and here's the point I would be making.' "
Dr. SIBBALD went Toronto on September 12. A day later, his fourth grandchild was born in Vancouver. His son Martyn phoned to say the baby would be called William. The next morning Doctor SIBBALD was shown an e-mailed photo of his new namesake. He died later that day.
William John SIBBALD was born in London, Ontario, on June 28, 1946. He died of colon cancer at his Toronto home on September 14, 2006. He was 60. He leaves his wife Connie; children Tammie, Martyn, Robert, Katie and Georgie; four grandchildren; his mother, Shirley, and sisters Nancy DAVIDSON and Susan TAILOR/TAYLOR.

Dr. Bill SIBBALD, 60: Intensive Care Unit pioneer
Physician-in-chief at Sunnybrook also noted scholar
'But his greatest achievements were with his family'
By Tanya TALAGA, Health Reporter
A doctor with the soul of a teacher, a father who took great joy in his five children and his medical students, Doctor William (Bill) John SIBBALD thrived on pushing forward those who dared to dream.
SIBBALD was a founder of critical or intensive care medicine in North America -- a pioneer of setting up intense medical units to treat fragile patients recovering from traumatic accidents, exhaustive surgeries or life-threatening disease.
As physician-in-chief at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, SIBBALD also presided over the hospital's critical care unit, which is one of the largest in Canada, with almost 120 beds.
Surrounded by family, SIBBALD, 60, died of cancer at home Thursday, just days after he resigned from his position at Sunnybrook.
"I have met few scholars in medicine with his breadth and boundless curiosity," said Doctor David NAYLOR, president of the University of Toronto.
The two men were Friends for nearly 20 years.
"Bill SIBBALD was an international giant in critical care medicine truly one of the pioneers in the field."
Long before it was fashionable, SIBBALD was drawing together physicians, surgeons, anesthetists, nurses and others and creating a team-based approach to treat medically fragile patients, said NAYLOR.
"He built the Critical Care Trauma Unit at Victoria Hospital, now London Health Sciences Centre, into a magnet for trainees from around the world."
The author of countless academic papers and the editor of many books, Doctor SIBBALD's research interests and output was simply, "extraordinary," said NAYLOR. " Toronto was fortunate to recruit him."
SIBBALD graduated from the University of Western Ontario's medical school in 1970.
He went on to specialize in internal medicine.
A passionate physician with a love of learning, SIBBALD held a variety of leadership positions at London, Western, the University of Toronto and at Sunnybrook.
"I'm glad people know of his international achievements," said his son Robert SIBBALD. " But his greatest achievements were with his family. That's what he focused on."
SIBBALD and his wife Connie spent most of their lives in London, Ontario, where they worked and raised a family of five. SIBBALD refused all offers from big health centres and universities in the United States because he wanted to keep his then-young family in London.
"He worked some pretty crazy hours but he still found time to coach myself and my brother Martin in hockey," said Robert.
Leaving London was difficult for the SIBBALDs, but when the children grew older and there was the chance to come to Sunnybrook and the U of T, the family took it.
"He had a brilliant mind," said Leo STEVEN, Sunnybrook's chief executive officer. "Whenever I met him, he'd be going a mile a minute. He was constantly thinking of ways to promote medicine."
Enquiries, tributes and emails from colleagues all over the world have been pouring into Sunnybrook during these past few days, said Sunnybrook's Doctor Robert FOWLER, who is SIBBALD's friend and colleague.
Hospital staff are mourning his passing; the critical care unit he loved so deeply has been a "somber place" of late, added FOWLER.
The chance to work with SIBBALD was largely the reason FOWLER came back to Toronto from Stanford University in northern California.
"He really had this genuine passion in what he did and it was infectious. He could spend five minutes with someone and he could fire them up to take on the world."
Team building to care for patients and mentoring medical students, health-care staff and aspiring leaders was a lifelong interest of SIBBALD's.
Those who knew him regard this as one of his greatest strengths.
"He made people more productive and enthusiastic about their own lives," said FOWLER.
In his quest to educate the public on the importance of critical care medicine, SIBBALD was extremely supportive in providing the Toronto Star exclusive access to Sunnybrook's staff and medical units. The Star series "Situation Critical" was published last November.
SIBBALD continued his position at Sunnybrook until his illness made it impossible for him to continue working.
"He died at peace, surrounded by his family, after a very courageous two-year battle with cancer," said NAYLOR. "I miss him."
Friends may call at the Trull "North Toronto" Funeral Home and Cremation Centre (2704 Yonge St.), today from 6 to 9 p.m. Funeral service will be tomorrow at St. Clement's Anglican Church at 1 p.m. In lieu of flowers, remembrances may be made to the Sunnybrook Foundation, 2075 Bayview Ave., Toronto, Ontario, M4N 3M5.
