True definition of collaboration

A St. Michael’s-Providence initiative is tackling painful wait times

September 2018

Trevor Kampen marvels at the number of people he’s met during his journey from St. Michael’s Hospital to Providence Healthcare to treat his debilitating pressure wound, a condition caused by his spina bifida.

“There’s a lot of people involved in this,” the 30-year-old says with a chuckle as he tries to list off the names of all the doctors, nurses, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, his dietitian and others who have had a part in his care.

Happy anniversary to us!

Highlights from our first year, arranged to make a number '1'.Aug. 1, 2018

Today marks an important milestone in our collective history – one year ago today, we officially became a single health network when the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care approved our integration proposal.

Providence, St. Joseph’s and St. Michael’s came together with a shared purpose to advance the health of our patients, clients and residents, and our respective communities, as well as enhance the broader health system.

In the past year, we’ve made some great progress towards integrating and becoming a single health network.
