“Because of the integral role of small and rural hospitals within their communities, keeping pace with the increasing demand for health care services is critical. Hospitals across the province are seeking new and creative ways to meet the needs of a growing and aging population that has more complex health care needs, while facing other challenges, such as a lack of capacity in other parts of the system. It requires both courage and ingenuity to make the changes that are urgently needed to ensure that health care services will be available for years to come.

While change is not often easy, it is necessary to re-think the way hospitals deliver care to create more capacity within the system, make better use of the resources we have, and also take advantage of technological advancements, like safely reducing the time patients have to spend in hospitals while also improving quality.

Small and rural hospitals are at the heart of their communities and take their commitment to building a better health system seriously. They are well-positioned to take a leadership role in moving beyond the status quo, by embracing change and ingenuity to meet the health care needs of the communities they serve into the future”

The Future of Health Care in Muskoka

Muskoka Algonquin Healthcare’s (MAHC) future service delivery framework is meticulously crafted, drawing from expert planning, comprehensive evaluations, and numerous studies, all enriched by the direct input of our communities and dedicated health care providers. Looking ahead, MAHC is committed to enhancing acute care services across both of our sites, each supported by essential diagnostics and core support services. Our vision encompasses a broad array of acute care programs, including emergency, inpatient, and surgical services. Our proposal includes the addition of new inpatient beds, a cutting-edge stroke rehabilitation unit, and advanced MRI technology.

Our focused approach ensures that specialized services such as Chemotherapy and Complex Continuing Care continue to be centrally available to serve the entire region effectively. Furthermore, the COVID-19 pandemic has reinforced the Ministry of Health’s directive to transition services from hospital settings to community-based care. As a result, we are identifying and designing community-appropriate services such as prenatal care, pacemaker clinics, and diabetes education to enhance accessibility and convenience for our patients.

We are proud that our multi-site strategy not only supports patient- and family-centered care but also provides optimal access to care, ensuring the sustainability of acute care services for Muskoka and its neighboring areas. This model is well-supported by our communities and is designed to be dynamic, allowing for ongoing adjustments to incorporate evolving technologies, best practices, and community needs. This strategic flexibility ensures that our service delivery remains adaptable and responsive to any future challenges or opportunities that may arise.
