In July, East Toronto Health Partners (ETHP) progressed to the next phase of the Ontario Health Team application process.
It has been a busy summer working together with partners as we develop our full application and focus on our three priority populations for year one: seniors and caregivers, with a focus on chronic disease; people living with mental health challenges and addictions; and priority neighbourhoods to meet the local needs of diverse communities.
We are holding several engagement sessions and we appreciate the involvement of many of you in these discussions.
ETHP is hosting a webinar to discuss the engagement and co-design work that is currently underway, to provide updates on primary care engagement and involvement, and to answer your questions as we work to develop a transformative health care model that wraps care and services around patients, clients and families.
With warm regards from the ETHP leadership team,
Anne Babcock, President & CEO, WoodGreen Community Services
Carol Annett, CEO, VHA Home HealthCare
Jennifer Bowman, Vice President, Providence Healthcare (Unity Health Toronto)
