The HCC Modernization Working Group aims to understand local needs for home and community care, and make recommendations to the province for a phased transition plan that will deliver the kind of care our patients need.

As an OHT, delivering home and community care means working collaboratively with patients, families, and caregivers, and all health care partners to design and deliver home care in a way that makes sense based on the unique needs and geography of Muskoka and Area. Patients will be able to expect timely and effective care when and where they need it. Receiving care at home is often preferable and more beneficial than at hospital. Keeping patients out of hospital who don’t need to be there also preserves capacity in our hospitals for those who truly need acute levels of care.
