The voluntary merger of three Toronto hospitals is now official.

 

As of Aug. 1, the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care has approved the plan which officially unites Providence Healthcare in Scarborough, and St. Joseph’s Health Centre and St. Michael’s Hospital, both downtown, under one corporate entity.

 

“This is an important and exciting milestone for each of our organizations and the people we care for as we work toward our vision of advancing the health of our patients and our urban communities,” said Tom Woods, chair of the inaugural board of directors of the new health network, in a press release.

 

The merger was proposed last year by the leaders of the three organizations, who submitted a proposal to integrate. The goal is to provide better and more accessible local health care for everyone under the umbrella of a single health network.

 

The 10,000 combined staff members are now employees of the new health network.

 

 “Our new health network presents an opportunity for us to reinvest in patient care as well as help patients and their families obtain better access to higher quality, integrated care,” said Dr. Robert Howard, interim president and CEO, in a press release.
