Job Description


Client Organization: Trillium Health Partners
Position Title: Director, Neurosciences and MSK

Trillium Health Partners was formed in 2011 through the voluntary merger of Credit Valley Hospital and Trillium Health Centre, two large and forward-looking academic community hospitals. The new entity (or facility) is the largest community-based hospital in Ontario and, through numerous clinical programs and services, serves a diverse population in western Toronto, Mississauga and beyond that exceeds several million people. 

Trillium Health Partners’ (THP) focus is to provide the highest quality care and an exceptional experience for patients and families every time; the right care, in the right place, at the right time; and to drive research, innovation and education to help bridge the gaps to improve the journey and deliver better patient outcomes.

The strategic plan of THP envisions a new approach to health – working in partnership to create an inter-connected system of care that is organized around the patient, both inside the hospital and beyond its walls. The foundational goals of the strategic plan are: quality, access and sustainability. THP is guided by the following values: compassion, excellence and courage. THP is in the process of refreshing its strategic plan.

Trillium Health Partners has 1,250+ beds, an operating budget of $1 billion annually, and operates on three main sites with additional services at satellite sites.

Leading a large and multi-disciplinary team, the Director will manage a budget of $22M and ensure the delivery of several initiatives designed to yield high quality care for patients and their families. The Director will play a vital role in building and sustaining excellence in the Regional Stroke, Regional Neurosurgery and Orthopaedics Programs and will lead these programs toward their future goal of becoming a single, integrated system of Neurosurgery/Stroke and Orthopaedic care. 

With a commitment to an inter-connected system of care that is organized around the patient, both inside the hospital and beyond its walls, the Director will ensure the exceptional delivery of care to patients.
