Patients, families, and community will be able to provide input into integration activities
Scarborough and Rouge Hospital (SRH) is well-positioned to meet the deliverables of its 100-day plan, which outlines the initial integration activities for the organization following the merger of The Scarborough Hospital’s Birchmount and General sites and Rouge Valley Health System’s Centenary site on December 1, 2016. The plan is available on the hospital’s websites at www.tsh.to/scarborough-and-rouge-hospital/ and www.rougevalley.ca/scarboroughandrougehospital.
“The 100-day plan sets the stage for us to create a truly integrated and accessible hospital system for Scarborough, building on the safe, high quality care of our legacy organizations,” said Andrée Robichaud, interim president and CEO of SRH.
“What’s more, it will allow us to develop cohesiveness within our organization through culturally aligned teams and harmonized operational structures.”
Guided by the 100-day plan, SRH’s integration efforts are proceeding at many levels, including integrated leadership teams, committees, human resource policies, financial planning, information systems, and communication tools.
“These activities are necessary steps towards fully integrating the two legacy hospitals into one single, hospital corporation,” said Robichaud.
“However, it will take time to truly operate as one health system and so this work will continue beyond the first 100 days.”
Patients, families, and the community are invited to ask questions and provide feedback on the 100-day plan by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. In addition, community engagement sessions, where community members can share their ideas on how the hospital can best meet the health care needs of its community now and into the future, will be announced in the coming weeks.
