  • Advance outstanding partnerships with hospitals and other healthcare providers across the region to further build and foster an integrated regional health system.
  • Optimize opportunities for health system leadership, innovation, and improved health outcomes by actively seeking out new external relationships across the business community, universities and colleges, governments, research centres, and other regional and provincial partners as appropriate.
