Impossible. That’s what some people said when Women’s College Hospital set out to help create a more sustainable Canadian health-care system. They were wrong. We are well on our way to creating one of the most ground-breaking institutions in the world focused on advancing health care for women and pioneering new models of care that can impact and benefit patients everywhere.
From a ground-breaking breast reconstruction surgical approach to pain management that begins even before surgery is underway, Women’s College Hospital is pioneering new ways of getting patients home safely and comfortably within 18 hours. Our work is challenging the traditional concepts of what can be accomplished in ‘day surgery’ and is influencing health-care practice across Canada and beyond.
Women’s College Hospital and the University of Toronto have developed a better way to help patients with chronic conditions take control of their symptoms, while also teaching the health-care professionals of tomorrow the practice of ambulatory care. In the Centre for Ambulatory Care Education (CACE) Complex Care Clinic, patients receive one-stop, coordinated care from a team of specialists and residents.
At Women’s College Hospital, research underpins all that we do. Many of our scientists are clinically-based and their research questions are shaped by the needs of their patients. Real-life clinical needs and cultural perspectives drive the focus of all of our work.
We identify the problems that strain and undermine Ontario’s health system to inform targeted solutions for better managing illness and preventing health crises. By improving health-care access and delivery for Ontarians, we’re building models of care that can support health and well-being for all Canadians. It’s about delivering care that works, the first time.
