Partnering for Patients: Trillium Health Centre and The Credit Valley Hospital merge
On April 7, 2011 an announcement was made about the intent to amalgamate Trillium Health Centre and The Credit Valley Hospital to bring the best possible patient care services to the communities of Mississauga and West Toronto. After an intensive and comprehensive review of the clinical benefits of the merger, community consultation and due diligence, the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care gave final approval for the amalgamation of the two organizations.
December 1, 2011 marked the beginning of a new chapter in the hospitals’ history and a turning point in a longer-term process of bringing the two hospitals together to provide even better service and meet the rapidly changing health needs of our community – one of the fastest growing in Canada.
On February 1, 2012, a CEO Selection Committee, a special committee of the Board of Directors of The Credit Valley Hospital and Trillium Health Centre, announced Michelle DiEmanuele as the President and CEO of the newly merged hospital.
Her main priorities will be to continue to lead the delivery of outstanding patient care to the communities of Mississauga and West Toronto while leading the integration of The Credit Valley Hospital and Trillium Health Centre.
While the Foundations continue to work collaboratively on select projects, such as the Mississauga Academy of Medicine, there are no plans in place for us to join together.
The priorities of our Giving 110% campaign are more important than ever. Our donors can continue to support the individual hospital site from which they have benefitted, and we will continue to provide those opportunities to our many supporters who give so generously of their time, energy and resources at Trillium’s Mississauga and West Toronto locations.
