On November 26, 2019, the Honourable Christine Elliott, Deputy Premier and Minister of Health announced Mississauga Health as one of the first of 24 Ontario Health Teams (OHT) in the province.
Mississauga Health is a partnership of local health care providers who are committed to better health in the community and better experiences for patients and providers. Together, we will work to make sure patients, families and caregivers have better access to the care they need, when and where they need it.
In early 2019, the Government of Ontario introduced the OHT model to integrate health care providers to work as one team, so that patients experience seamless transitions one care setting to another as well as have better access to after-hours services and community supports. Our approach is aligned with the province’s plan to build a connected health care system that is centred on patients, families and caregivers.
