What are Ontario Health Teams?

Ontario Health Teams provide a new way of organizing and delivering care that is more connected to people 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.

Help improve health and well-being in Elgin County.

Your Elgin Ontario Health Team (OHT) is working to understand what the community needs, and we invite people accessing care, caregivers, and families who support loved ones needing care, to share your thoughts about care in Elgin with the Elgin Ontario Health Team. There are a number of ways to participate. For more information, please contact Lauren Caruana at lauren.caruana@elginoht.ca or 226-927-8036.
