Planning for Our Future

As our community grows and gets older, the demand for healthcare will increase.

To care for you and your family for years to come, we are forging a new path.

We will continue our digital transformation, develop new partnerships, connect care throughout the community and build new facilities.

Our Master Plan, currently being developed, will be our guide for how we will expand to meet the needs of a changing healthcare system and our growing communities over the next 10, 20 and 30 years.

Through the Southlake Community Ontario Health Team, the hospital, along with a dozen home care, community and social service providers, are reinventing how healthcare is delivered in Ontario.


What is Master Planning?

Our 2019-2023 Strategic Plan commits us to forge a new path to meet the changing needs of our growing communities. In keeping with this goal, we launched a master planning process at the beginning of 2019.

The first step in this process is to develop a Clinical Services Plan (CSP). The CSP provides an understanding of the services that Southlake will need to provide in the future, taking into account population growth, the changing needs of the people that we care for and how healthcare will be delivered in the future. All program, facility and services needs for the next 10, 20 and 30 years are included in the CSP. This information is used to forecast the amount of space that Southlake will need in the future.

Once the CSP is complete, a Master Program is developed to outline when, where and why all of Southlake’s programs and services will need to expand.

The final step of the master planning process is the development of the Master Plan itself. Incorporating the CSP and the Master Program, the Master Plan will define how Southlake will evolve and grow to meet the needs of our communities and continue to deliver exceptional patient care for decades to come.

Leading edge care. By your side.

Our 2019-2023 Strategic Plan

Southlake has always created innovative solutions to our most pressing challenges. But innovation does not happen on its own. Southlake’s core strength is our people. Staff, physicians, and volunteers have come together to provide leading edge care for patients and families.

We are not resting on our past achievements. A new set of challenges will test our collective ability to meet the needs of our communities, including:

  • The need to address overcrowding
  • The requirement to deliver clinical excellence
  • The responsibility to provide the best patient and staff experience
  • The opportunity to help improve the healthcare system

We will rise to these challenges.
