Operating Plan

This year, the Ontario Hospital Association (OHA) proudly celebrates 100 years of service to Ontario's hospitals. Over the last century, hospitals have adapted with remarkable resiliency and ingenuity, rising to challenges, collaborating on pivotal advances and delivering historic levels of care and attention to the health system, particularly while facing the COVID-19 crisis.

After nearly two years of post-pandemic recovery and system stabilization, Ontario is at a turning point. Facing an increasing lack of capacity, large labour and inflationary cost pressures, and population growth, combined with a rising number of seniors who have complex health care needs, new thinking has never been needed more than now.

As the OHA enters the second year of its strategic plan, we continue to directly engage with hospital and health system leaders as we focus our efforts on laying the foundation for this urgently needed transformation. In the short term, the OHA will maintain advocacy for the financial and operational stability of the sector and begin taking action to enable long-term policy change. While the system is facing deeper challenges, its future depends on the decisions and actions we take today. Effectively meeting these needs will require the resolve to move beyond the status quo and a firm commitment to embracing change and innovation. The groundwork in support of these long-term ambitions is laid out in this Operating Plan.
