Joint Centres for Transformative Health Innovation

Joint Centres for Transformative Health Innovation


The Joint Centres for Transformative Healthcare Innovation (Joint Centres) consists of seven member hospitals: Markham Stouffville Hospital, Mackenzie Health, Michael Garron Hospital, North York General Hospital, Southlake Regional Health Centre, Humber River Hospital and St. Joseph’s Health Centre Toronto.

The Joint Centres are a platform for innovation and collaboration. Innovation is a great way for hospitals to help improve your patient experience. The Joint Centres are guided by four strategic directions:

  • Seek and share innovative ideas that improve service delivery and/or value across the system
  • Serve as a living laboratory to demonstrate innovation
  • Create opportunities for shared innovation, learning and knowledge transfer
  • Provide a forum for the rapid execution of new ideas, technologies, products and processes
