Scarborough Ontario Health Team proceeds to full application stage
August 13, 2020
In an exciting step forward, the group of more than 40 Scarborough health service provider partners including Hong Fook, is now being invited to move on to the next phase of the readiness assessment process and complete a full application to become the Scarborough Ontario Health Team (OHT). The application will be submitted to the Ministry of Health on September 18, 2020.
If approved, the Scarborough OHT will join the already approved 29 teams supporting the health service needs of Ontarians and serve one of the largest populations in the province. In the first year, the group will focus on one of Scarborough’s most vulnerable populations: people with age-related frailty, as well as multiple chronic diseases and mental health concerns. Health equity for Scarborough’s diverse community is a priority for the OHT.
