Senior Friendly Hospital Strategy

The Senior Friendly Hospital Strategy is a cross-LHIN, provincial wide strategy to enable seniors to maintain optimal health and function while they are hospitalized, so they can transition successfully home or to the next appropriate level of care. Currently, St. Michael’s Hospital has a refreshed 3-year Senior Friendly Hospital Strategy (2016-2019). Please visit the website below to find out more about the provincial strategy.
