Strategic Directions 2013 2017

In 2013 the Board of Trustees approved a new set of Strategic Directions for the Collingwood General and Marine Hospital.

Five new Strategic Directions were identified with a focus on Patient Experience, Right Care at the Right Place, Access to Orthopaedic Care, Innovation and Our Hospital.

A deep environmental scan was completed which identified potential demographic needs the hospital must address. In recognition of current challenges which include increased volumes to the emergency department and frequently high overcapacity levels, an aging facility, a shortage of space, and sustained financial stability, the Board of Trustees has laid the groundwork for a new path which focuses on sustaining the future of the G&M Hospital.

Governed by these new strategic directions all physicians, nurses, staff and volunteers at the Collingwood General & Marine Hospital will continue to provide the best possible patient experience, by ensuring community members and visitors receive the right care at the right place, with access to innovative and efficient technology. The hospital will provide care closer to home for those with complex conditions and timely access to orthopaedic care and local rehabilitation services. By implementing these new directions we will sustain the future of our hospital, as we build our case for a Health Campus or a major hospital expansion.
