TORONTO, Feb. 15, 2012 /CNW/ - The Ontario Hospital Association (OHA)
and Ontario's hospitals welcome today's release of Public Services for Ontarians: A Path to Sustainability and Excellence, by the Commission on the Reform of Ontario's Public Services.
The OHA agrees that moving forward to address the province's financial
challenges requires significant change. We also know that any solutions
to address health care spending must bring lasting results and be
guided by what is in the very best interest of patients.
Overall, the OHA and its member hospitals welcome the perspective that
Mr. Drummond brings to the broader public sector and intend to review
the report and its recommendations carefully.
"We are especially encouraged by recommendations aimed at system-wide
enhancements to patient care," says the OHA's Interim President and
CEO, Mark Rochon.
The OHA and Ontario's hospitals recognize that the Commission's report
is intended as advice for the government and believe that careful and
effective implementation of any recommendations will be key. The OHA
will do its part to work with the government and other health system
providers to help inform implementation decisions and ensure that high
quality patient care remains the foremost goal of Ontario's health
