The Southlake Community OHT is committed to providing high-quality care for all residents of northern York Region and southern Simcoe County. Our OHT will initially focus on specific populations with unique needs where we believe can have the biggest positive impact. The healthcare organizations making up the OHT would focus first on improving care for these patients.
Based on a review of data from the partner organizations and with significant input from clinical leaders, front-line teams, and patients themselves, we have identified two initial priority populations:
- Older adults with complex healthcare needs
- Adults with mental health and addictions challenges
These are patient populations for which our organizations have historically worked together to provide integrated care.
“By partnering together, we can improve access to care and better support families and caregivers as well.”

“We are dedicated to ensuring people have access to high quality primary care, which is the basis for seamlessly accessing all parts of the healthcare system.”
