The Guelph and Area Ontario Health Team (OHT) was one 158 Ontario teams that submitted an application to the Ministry of Health for consideration. Of those submissions, 31, including Guelph, were invited to the next step and submit a full application by Oct. 9. So far, 17 healthcare organizations* in Guelph and surrounding area have become core members of the new Guelph and Area Ontario Health Team (Guelph and Area OHT).
In developing our submission, numerous engagement sessions have been held over the past number of months involving patients, families, persons with lived experience, clinicians and other health care providers. From those meetings, the first two local priority populations were identified – palliative care and mental health & addictions.
In June, 2021, our OHT was expanded to include Groves Memorial Community Hospital and North Wellington Health Care and renamed the Guelph Wellington OHT.
The Guelph and Area Ontario Health Team (OHT) is, in part, funded through support from the Ministry of Health.
