It is a pivotal time for health care in Ontario. The Connecting Care Act, 2019 lays the foundation for a new model of health care delivery to be created that puts the patient at the centre of a connected care system. Osler is working with community partners to co-design an integrated model of health care for the region. The hospital is also in an exciting phase of its history – strengthening its bond with patients and families, health care partners and the community through its renewed vision: Patient-inspired health care without boundaries.
