Who we are?
CarePoint Health (CPH) is an innovative team of physicians and healthcare professionals that aims to improve the health and wellness of the Mississauga communities.

CPH’s mission is to improve health outcomes for our community through partnerships and a culture of innovation. Our goals are to increase patient satisfaction, improve provider work life, improve population health, and reduce health care costs.

CPH has recently been named as a Network Lead Organization for the Ontario Structured Psychotherapy Program (OSP). OSP provides access to publicly funded, evidence-based, short-term, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and related approaches to clients with depression, anxiety, and anxiety-related conditions. The program is delivered through a “hub and spoke” model; the hub provides shared administrative services and clinical quality oversight of the network, and community-based delivery sites such as community mental health agencies and primary care practices deliver the majority of client services.
