Ontario Health is the provincial agency created by the Government of Ontario with a mandate to connect and coordinate our province’s health care system in ways that have not been done before, to help ensure that Ontarians receive the best possible care. Since it was established in June 2019, we have brought together many existing health care organizations, applying our world class experience, knowledge and expertise to support better health experiences and outcomes and value for health care dollars spent.
Together with the Ministry of Health, we are making great progress in establishing Ontario Health, working with our partners to support the government in building a modern, connected and sustainable health system. For more information, visit www.ontariohealth.ca.
