In its effort to end hallway health care, the Ford government has announced eight new Health Teams across the province.
“We will be providing 9 million dollars, approximately 1.1 million for each new team, to help them begin the important work of connecting care for patients and to support their local COVID-19 response,” Health Minister Christine Elliott told reporters. “With these new teams, there are now 50 Ontario Health Teams that will provide better connected care to 92 % of the province’s population.”
These new health care teams will be set up in:
*Hastings Prince Edward OHT in Hastings and Prince Edward Counties
