Muskoka Health Link

Health Links are an initiative of the Government of Ontario to support and encourage greater collaboration between existing local health care providers, including family care providers, specialists, hospitals, long-term care, home care and other community supports. With improved coordination and information sharing, patients will receive faster care, will spend less time waiting for services, and will be supported by a team of health care providers at all levels of the health care system.

The Muskoka Community Health Link Steering Committee was formed in the winter of 2013 and is a partnership between the District Municipality of Muskoka, the Algonquin Family Health Team and Cottage Country Family Health Team, the North Muskoka Nurse Practitioner-Led Clinic, the North Simcoe Muskoka Community Care Access Centre, Muskoka Algonquin Healthcare, Canadian Mental Health Association, Muskoka-Parry Sound Branch, and other community agencies.

Muskoka's Community Health Link is focused on:

  • increasing access to primary care through Muskoka Community Health Hubs;
  • improving system navigation through co-ordinated care planning;
  • reducing Alternative Level of Care needs through community capacity building.
