Markham Stouffville Hospital is the first community hospital to join Kids Health Alliance

We are thrilled to share that we are part of an exciting new partnership that was launched today. The Kids Health Alliance (KHA) is comprised of founding members The Hospital for Sick Children, Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario and Holland Bloorview.  MSH was invited as the first community member of KHA. This great partnership brings together some of the best resources for providing care to children and youth.   This alliance provides a terrific opportunity to improve quality and safety by spreading evidence-based leading practices, sharing specialized resources and expertise, making transitions easier when patients are transferred between healthcare providers and finally, improving collaboration - all things that will ultimately benefit our patients.

We are excited to be working with these partners given that we have identified Childbirth and Children’s Services as a strategic priority and focus for our hospital.   The KHA will focus on the emergency department, inpatient paediatrics and the NICU ensuring physician thought leadership, implementation of best practice guidelines, and educational opportunities for staff working in these areas. This will ensure MSH is well positioned to lead the way among community hospitals in paediatric and neonatal clinical best practice close to home.

This media release contains more information about the event today and about KHA. In the coming weeks, we look forward to sharing with you more information about the partnership and how it will benefit our hospital and our patients.
