One million dollars to change
the face of health care for women.
The Ontario government directs 46% of spending to care for more patients, many of them chronically ill, within a system designed for acute illnesses and reactive treatment. Women’s College Hospital has a solution: we are changing the very definition of hospital and creating a health-care system that delivers services better, faster safer and more cost-effectively than ever before.
As a result of the many individuals, corporations and foundations that have invested in The Campaign for Women’s College Hospital, we are now well on our way to achieving our $70 million goal. More than 50% of our goal has been committed — an incredible achievement that we celebrate with our entire community.
Women’s College Hospital and the University of Toronto have developed a better way to help patients with chronic conditions take control of their symptoms, while also teaching the health-care professionals of tomorrow the practice of ambulatory care. In the Centre for Ambulatory Care Education (CACE) Complex Care Clinic, patients receive one-stop, coordinated care from a team of specialists and residents.
Nearly 20% of patients discharged from Toronto hospitals are readmitted within three months. Women’s College Hospital’s Virtual Ward applies the best elements of care to patients discharged from Toronto hospitals so they can recover in the comfort of home. It offers direct, 24/7 access to physicians and other health-care professionals, dramatically reducing the need for patient readmission.
At Women’s College Hospital, research underpins all that we do. Many of our scientists are clinically-based and their research questions are shaped by the needs of their patients. Real-life clinical needs and cultural perspectives drive the focus of all of our work.
With studies underway in more than 30 countries and publications in the world’s major medical journals, Women’s College Hospital is leading the world in research about women’s health and health system solutions. We are the niche hospital that creates innovative health-care models, and then publishes and evaluates them for the benefit of health-care systems around the world.
