 About

The Institute for Better Health was established in 2014 to support the hospital’s collective mission to build a new kind of health care for a healthier community, with an unwavering commitment to better health through research and innovation. At the Institute for Better Health, we believe the key to building a new kind of health care is to focus on what matters most to patients – better health.

Through the diversity of our patient population and the full continuum of care available in the surrounding community, the Institute for Better Health has an exciting opportunity to test solutions that can be adapted to benefit any hospital or community to impact health and health care in our province, country and beyond.  We believe that solutions that work within our walls will work beyond our walls.
