Joint Centres for Transformative Healthcare Innovation

The Joint Centres is a partnership between seven large community hospitals focused on collaboration and sharing to improve quality, safety and performance in health care. Member hospitals comprise Humber River Hospital, Mackenzie Health, Markham Stouffville Hospital, Michael Garron Hospital, North York General Hospital, Southlake Regional Health Centre, and St. Joseph's Health Centre.

As a platform for innovation and collaboration, the Joint Centres is guided by five strategic directions:

  • Seek and share innovative ideas that improve service delivery and/or value across the system
  • Serve as a living laboratory to demonstrate innovation
  • Provide a forum for the rapid execution of new ideas, technologies, products and processes to improve system performance
  • Provide a test environment for Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care and/or LHIN sponsored innovation and demonstration projects
  • Create opportunities for shared innovation, learning, and knowledge transfer among the member organizations, their staff and physicians
