Dec 2, 2019

Residents of Guelph and area will be some of the first in Ontario to benefit from a new model of organizing and delivering health care that better connects patients and providers in their communities to improve patient outcomes.

On Nov. 29, the Honourable Christine Elliott, Deputy Premier and Minister of Health, announced the Guelph and Area Ontario Health Team (OHT) would be among the first 24 teams in the province. St. Joseph’s Health Centre Guelph is among the group of collaborators  making up the new team.

“In the Guelph area, we are building on what we already do well – collaborating to meet the needs of patients. Together, we are able to achieve much more than we can separately. All of us are committed to strengthening our local health system and available services, improve client experiences and ultimately, make the community healthier.”
