Group Name: Women’s College Hospital – Wellness for Independent Seniors
Description: Women’s College Hospital is established in women’s health – our remarkable history goes back more than a century in Ontario. We have gone through many changes in the past several years – the most recent being regaining our independent governance on April 1, 2006. This is a very exciting time for us, as we explore new and better ways to provide care to women and their families throughout every phase of their lives. Women’s College Hospital is a community dedicated to achieving leadership in women’s health in an ambulatory care setting.
