Our inaugural Partnering for a Healthier Tomorrow Awards held on Wednesday, September 30, 2015 showcased the collaborative initiatives underway amongst health service providers across our LHIN.

The 2015 Awards are aligned with the five key priorities of the Mississauga Halton LHIN’s 2013-2016 Integrated Health Service Plan (IHSP) – Accessible and Sustainable Health Care; Family Health Care When You Need It; Enhanced Community Capacity; Optimal Health – Mental and Physical; and High Quality Person- Centred Care. Each priority has goals and strategies that have served as a road map to keep us focused and move us forward.

For our inaugural awards, we received 15 applications reflecting three of our five priorities. These initiatives include the work of 39 health care organizations reflecting partnerships that are improving the health care system for patients, clients, families and residents.

Through strong partnerships and high quality initiatives that ensure better access to the right care for those who need it most, we are truly partnering for a healthier tomorrow.
