Sinai Health System: Where care connects.

Connections are at the heart of Sinai Health System.

We are working to forge stronger connections between patients and caregivers; colleagues and care settings; and research and treatment. By leveraging the power of connections, we are creating a new, seamless care experience that centres around our patients, their families and their health goals.

The best care happens when things connect.

Health care is changing because people’s needs are changing. That’s why we created Sinai Health System, four unique organizations that have come together to deliver a seamless continuum of care.

Leading the future
of health care today

In January 2015, Sinai Health System set an ambitious goal to be an exemplar for high quality integrated care for patients with complex care needs. While we are only one year young, we are already transforming the future of health care.

We created a new clinical pathway for patients who have experienced hip fractures. By bringing together the orthopaedic surgical teams at Mount Sinai and the rehabilitative team at Bridgepoint, as well as an interprofessional team of nursing, social work and occupational therapists to map out the most effective course of treatment and recovery for patients we have seen extraordinary results:

  • We doubled hip fracture referrals from Mount Sinai to Bridgepoint.
  • Patient’s length of stay in hospital decreased by – 22% which means that they could return to their community sooner.
  • The reduction of patient length of stay exceeded best practice benchmarks – which means we are a top ranking performer in this area.
Laying the foundation for a bright future
  • One Sinai Health System Board of Directors and Committees
  • One integrated executive team
  • Single Medical Advisory Committee (MAC) including harmonized Clinical Practice Committee
  • Launch of a new brand, vision, mission, values
  • Coordinated the management of Foundation resources
  • 400% increase in medical residents at Bridgepoint through the Wightman-Berris Academy

The drive to innovate more impactful and effective models of care is felt by each and every one of our clinicians. Nurses, physicians, social workers and physiotherapists are just a few of the extraordinary clinicians who work together, inter-professionally to develop new professional practice and care pathways that improve patient outcomes. Empowering staff to collaboratively reimagine how we deliver care means that we can harness their passion and commitment to do even better for our patients, as a team.

Bridgepoint Active Healthcare

Active Healthcare is not a name, it’s a philosophy. Today people are living with complex health conditions – affecting not only their body but the entire fabric of their lives. Over the last decade, we have put an entirely new model of health care into action, one that places the patient at the centre of their own care universe, family and friends included. We call active health care.

return home

All his life, Duncan Skinner has liked to dance. So much so, that when Duncan retired in the spring of 2015, he had only two goals in mind for retirement: visit his eldest daughter more often and do more Scottish country dancing with his wife Carole. But the couple’s plans were waylaid when, in the first week of December, Duncan started to feel “funny.”

Harold E. Ballard Foundation is growing a legacy for years to come.

Some of Mary-Elizabeth Flynn’s fondest memories are with her family in the garden. When it came time to make a gift to Bridgepoint that would respect her father’s wishes, a greenspace was the perfect fit. The Harold E. Ballard Foundation Rooftop Garden is located on the 10th floor and is a place where patients and families can enjoy some quality time while experiencing unparalleled views of the Toronto skyline.

How our community is driving connected care

With the support of our donor community, we have achieved some incredible accomplishments this past year. From supporting a national aging strategy to advancing research into some of the most-pressing health issues like diabetes and cancer, we are connecting people to the type of care that addresses their broader needs.

We rolled out an Acute Care for Elders (ACE) Strategy that is now being recognized by Canada’s federal Minister of Health and is being modeled and rolled out throughout 17 hospitals in Canada and one in Iceland. This is an incredible leap forward in Sinai Health System’s approach to addressing the needs of our older patients through this innovative ACE Collaborative. Transformation is fueled by philanthropic leaders like Bob Rubinoff, Ben & Hilda Katz Charitable Foundation and Peter and Shelagh Godsoe who have been committed to ensuring that elder care remains a priority.
