This is an exciting time in health care for Ontario with the announcement of Ontario Health Teams.
The Ontario government is building a connected health care system centred around patients, families and caregivers. These changes will strengthen local services, making it easier for patients to navigate the system and transition between providers.

Ontario Health Teams (OHT) are being introduced to provide a new way of organizing and delivering care that is more connected to patients in their local communities. Under Ontario Health Teams, health care providers (including hospitals, doctors and home and community care providers) work as one coordinated team - no matter where they provide care.

The Burlington OHT is proud to be one of the first wave of OHTs. We have an opportunity to participate in building a new model of healthcare service provision within the Burlington community.
