Healthcare in Canada - September 1998

The Health Services Restructuring Commission has issued notices for East Toronto hospitals to co-ordinate their services, particularly maternal, newborn and pediatric programs. This is in addition to a voluntary merger of the Scarborough General Hospital and the Salvation Army Scarborough Grace Hospital, to provide perinatal and ambulatory pediatric services.

The inpatient pediatric services of the Scarborough General will be transferred to the Rouge Valley Health System (amalgamation of Centenary and Ajax & Pickering hospitals) and the Toronto East General and Orthopaedic Hospital. Inpatient pediatric services of the Salvation Army Scarborough Grace Hospital will be transferred to the Rouge Valley Health System and North York General Hospital.

Pediatric Oncology Group of Ontario (POGO) has announced the launch of a provincial program that will take components of the care of children with cancer closer to the family home. The program will combine the advantages of specialist run tertiary hospital care with those of care within the local community.
