Niagara Health has fostered a number of partnerships to help deliver healthcare to patients across the region.

Niagara Health is committed to meeting the changing needs of the diverse population of Niagara. Our patient, student, clinical, academic and community partnerships continue to help us identify opportunities to enhance our program and services, increase access to care, and improve patient and family experiences.

Niagara Health is one of 47 partners who comprise the Niagara Ontario Health Team - Équipe Santé Ontario Niagara. The partners are from a broad range of healthcare, community support sector and social services – which includes 80 Primary Care Physicians, as well as patients/clients, families and caregivers. Partners work together as one team to create a coordinated approach to care that makes it easier for patient to access services, creating seamless transitions between providers, and improve the patient’s experience and health outcomes.

Feature Partner

Partners in Patient Care

Niagara Health relies on its partners in patient care to help identify service needs in the community and ensure the voices of patients and families are included across all programs and services.

Partners in Research and Education

Niagara Health offers a variety of educational opportunities including internships and clinical placements. The I-EQUIP program is an extension of the classroom, providing an opportunity for students and front-line staff to work together on a variety of quality initiatives that improve patient care. Niagara Health’s Research Office conducts research that informs care, inspires innovation and create environments of collaborative learning.

Partners in Community Services

By working more closely with family doctors and other healthcare partners, we are supporting people to manage their conditions in community settings, including in their homes. Strengthening care in community settings will avoid unnecessary hospital visits and ensure hospital services are appropriately directed to those who need this higher level of care. We are empowering our community to access the right level of care, at the right time, and at the right place.
