CAHO hospitals eager to partner with new government towards a healthier, wealthier, smarter Ontario

Toronto, June 12, 2018 – The Council of Academic Hospitals of Ontario (CAHO) congratulates Premier-designate Doug Ford and is eager to support the new government in reducing hospital wait times, ending hallway medicine and creating good jobs for Ontarians.

“CAHO members, Ontario’s 23 academic research hospitals, provide care to Ontarians across the province and serve as strong partners to government,” said Michelle Noble, Executive Director of CAHO. “We look forward to partnering with Premier-designate Ford to drive Ontario’s health care priorities and continue making the province healthier, wealthier and smarter.”

Academic research hospitals play a unique and vital role in Ontario’s health care system. They care for their local communities and provide advanced care to Ontario’s sickest patients with the most complicated and resource-intensive needs. CAHO hospitals also train the health care workforce of tomorrow and strengthen the economy as the research and development arm of Ontario’s health care system. In 2017, CAHO hospitals invested $1.5 billion in health research and engaged more than 18,000 researchers and research staff.
