Happy anniversary to us! (preview)

Highlights from our first year, arranged to make a number '1'.Aug. 1, 2018

Today marks an important milestone in our collective history – one year ago today, we officially became a single health network when the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care approved our integration proposal.

Providence, St. Joseph’s and St. Michael’s came together with a shared purpose to advance the health of our patients, clients and residents, and our respective communities, as well as enhance the broader health system.

In the past year, we’ve made some great progress towards integrating and becoming a single health network.

How K!DConnect’s patient navigator is changing lives

July/August 2018

Arlene Mendoza’s son Brian was three when she noticed he was having trouble talking.

But, living in the Philippines at that time, she couldn’t afford to take him to a doctor.

It wasn’t until last fall – after Brian, now 14, joined his mother in Canada – that he was diagnosed with autism by Dr. Joelene Huber, a St. Michael’s pediatrician who participates in the hospital’s school outreach program. Knowing the family would need support through this journey, Dr. Huber referred them to a new St. Michael’s initiative, the RBC-K!DConnect Pediatric Patient Navigator Program for Children and Youth with Developmental and Mental Health Conditions.
