Proposed Algoma Ontario Health Team Progresses

A group of Algoma health agencies are moving forward with efforts to form an "Ontario Health Team".

The "Algoma Ontario Health Team" says it's been selected by Ontario's Ministry of Health to proceed to the next stage - including a comprehensive full application - after submitting an initial self-assessment on readiness to form the organization.

It plans to complete the application "over the next several weeks", at which point the Ministry will evaluate all applications.

Partners in the local group include Algoma Family Services, Algoma Public Health, Sault Area Hospital, and medical groups, clinics, and a few other facilities in the region.
