The Muskoka and Area is proud to be one of the inaugural communities in Ontario to move forward with establishing an Ontario Health Team. On December 6, 2019, the Honourable Christine Elliott, Deputy Premier and Minister of Health, announced the Muskoka and Area Ontario Health Team (MAOHT) as one of the first teams in the province to implement a new model of organizing and delivering health care to better connect patients and providers to resources in their communities making seamless delivery of patient care a priority.

Please note: There will be NO immediate changes to any care at this time. We are dedicated to communicating all changes as we move forward.

Our Priorities & Concentrations

What are some of the highlights of having an Ontario Health Team in the Muskoka region?

  • Reinvestments in front-line care; and
  • Access to new and improved digital initiatives for patients and clinicians.

Currently, the scope of services focuses on improving care coordination and care transitions for those 65 and older and includes:

  • inter-professional primary care;
  • acute care;
  • home care and community support services;
  • mental health and addictions;
  • health promotion and disease prevention;
  • rehabilitation and complex care;
  • palliative care;
