Serving Ontario’s hospitals to build a better health system

Across Ontario, hospitals have transformed and adapted like no other part of the health care system. Hospitals are working collaboratively with their system partners to deliver care in new and innovative ways, and are fundamentally redefining their role in the health care system. Our purpose, at the OHA is Serving Ontario’s hospitals to build a better health system. At the heart of our new strategic plan is the conviction that striving for excellence in our core services to me​mbers – advocacy, learning and engagement, collective bargaining and data and analytics support – must come first. At the same time, hospitals have made it clear that the OHA cannot lose sight of the system view on the strategic questions facing the future of Ontario’s health care system. Members expect that the OHA be a leader in shaping new funding methodologies and in providing thought leadership on key ideas that help build a better health system and ensure that Ontario hospitals have a strong voice in reshaping the system in the coming years. This purpose is outlined in our new strategic plan and will come to life through our annual Budget and Operating Plans. With our new strategic plan, and our commitment to continue to engage our members, we are confident that we’ll be able to deliver the level of service that many of you have come to expect from the OHA.
