Orillia group makes pitch to form an Ontario Health Team

Orillia | by Ian MacLennan  

Hospitals, long term care, primary care and municipalities take the first step.

An Orillia group has made a pitch to form an Ontario Health Team.

Under changes to the health care system, the province wants community organizations to come together with proposals on how they can provide services under a local team.

The Couchiching Regional Planning Table has reached out over 20 community agencies including hospitals, long term care, primary care and municipalities.

"Health leaders across Orillia and area are genuinely excited about the opportunities that the establishment of an OHT will bring to patients and families," said Lynne Davies,  Executive Director of the Couchiching Family Health Team.

The province will invite select groups to submit a more in-depth application  by July 12.

The first Ontario Health Teams will be announced in the fall.
