Going Beyond

for Healthier Communities

Osler is ready to go beyond like never before to deliver safe, high quality care. Our new Strategic Plan will take us on a five-year journey that pushes the boundaries on innovative, bold, collaborative and sustainable change, altering the way patients access and engage the health system.

 

Our Strategic Directions

Everything we do and every decision we make over the next five years will be driven by a dedicated focus on quality excellence, organizational effectiveness, and health system leadership, which form the basis for our three strategic directions. This plan is our blueprint for the future – one that promises to create a sustainable future for health care at Osler and in our communities.

What Success Looks Like

We are championing a new tomorrow for health care, one that Osler is well positioned to lead with the help and support of our staff, physicians, volunteers, our patients and families, our partners, our donors and our community. By fulfilling the directions outlined in our plan, in five years:

More people are living healthier lives because they have the tools, education and resources to confidently manage their chronic diseases at home, minimizing unnecessary hospital admissions and visits to the Emergency Department;
 

Patients have greater access to the services they need, when they need them, due to a better coordinated health system and optimal use of virtual technologies;
 

Staff, physicians and volunteers feel a strong connection to Osler, enjoy working in a safe environment, and are inspired to learn, innovate and grow;

Osler services reflect the needs of patients and families who have taken an active role in helping to plan and shape those services; and
 

The foundation has been set for sustainable, accessible health care for generations to come.
