Humber River Health Lighting New Ways In Healthcare.

Humber River Health (HRH) is a prominent 1.8 million square foot, fully digital acute care facility in Canada, equipped with state-of-the-art technology and catering to a wide range of medical needs. It serves a population of over 850,000 individuals residing in the northwest Greater Toronto Area. HRH operates 722 acute inpatient beds at the Wilson site, with over 4000 staff, approximately 800 physicians and over 1,000 volunteers. HRH also includes the Reactivation Care Centres (RCCs) at the Finch and Church Campuses, which represent a unique partnership among multiple hospitals in the GTA with a focus on delivery of specialised care with the focus on reactivation to patients who have been designated as Alternative Level of Care.

 As Canada’s first digital hospital and home of the first digital Command Centre, our commitment to innovation, research, and academic excellence remains at the core of our organization. The HRH Research Institute drives the hospital’s pioneering position in digital healthcare innovation as Canada’s first digital hospital. Our Command Centre acts as a “mission control” to manage patient flow and drive the quality of care. We prioritize patient safety and high reliability care through the use of closed-loop automation, robotics, predictive analytics and artificial intelligence. We have developed advanced patient flow and care monitoring tools supported by the Command Centre, enabling us to use real-time data feeds from across the Hospital to improve patient flow, patient safety and outcomes.

 Our focus on equity and inclusivity is something we share with our partners at the North Western Toronto (NWT) Ontario Health Team (OHT). Our mission is to work together with our community to deliver innovative, safe and equitable healthcare.

HRH has developed short and long-term objectives that are outlined in the 2023-26 Strategic Plan, with a core direction of advancing HRH as a community academic healthcare institution. Examples include:

·   Evolve workflows and align scopes of practices to improve patient care and the provider experience;

· Adopt and adapt technology to promote exceptional patient care, and outcomes;

· Pursue partnerships and integration opportunities to advance equitable and inclusive care for our community; and

·      Advance our Medical Education programs.

As an associate member in the Toronto Academic Health Sciences Network (TAHSN), HRH provides many academic opportunities to all professions. We have established the Schulich Family Medicine Teaching Unit (FMTU) in partnership with the University of Toronto, further strengthening our commitment to academic excellence. The Schulich Family FMTU provides opportunities for residents to learn with academic and community-based family physicians. Residents also have access to interdisciplinary health professionals to support collaborative learning and comprehensive care experience
