Company Biography

Scarborough Ontario Health Team (SOHT) is one of the largest OHTs in the province and based in one of Canada′s most vibrant and diverse communities. We are a network of over thirty partner organizations with a rich history of collaboration providing health and community services across the continuum of care. Our OHT′s attributed population of almost 900,000 goes beyond the residents of Scarborough to include residents of neighboring communities that have made Scarborough their health care destination of choice.

SOHT partners are working together with the hundreds of physicians in the Scarborough Family Physicians Network (SFPN) and our active Client and Family Advisory Committee to co-design innovative,

integrated solutions to providing care. SOHT is governed by a 24-member “Collaboration Council” that includes individuals from SFPN, CFAC and partners from across all health sectors. The Collaboration Council is co-chaired by a representative of the lead agency (Scarborough Health Network) and a primary care physician representative of SFPN.

We are strongly committed to reducing health and social inequities to achieve improved population health. We provide integrated services for frail seniors living with mental health and/or addictions issues and multiple chronic conditions, and provide support for caregivers. While we face some hard challenges when it comes to social determinants of health, access to proper care and health literacy, we also have the passion, drive and determination to meet these challenges head on. Working together with our partners, we are setting the course to deliver better care and services for all the residents of Scarborough.

Leveraging our long history of collaboration, SOHT can and will transform how care is provided for the people of Scarborough.

SOHT′s strategic plan focuses on three main areas of development including driving further system integration, advancing our operations as an Ontario Health Team, and our #Scarborough Strong priority, which prioritizes working with our Scarborough community to shape the future of healthcare delivery in our communities.

SOHT Is Guided By The Following Vision And Values

Vision - People will have optimal health and positive experiences through an accessible, equitable and integrated team, system of care, services and supports.

Our Values lead to EPIC CARE: Equity, Person-centered, Innovation, Compassion, Collaboration, Accountability, Respect and Excellence

and committed to the ongoing relationship with SPFN by providing staffing and administrative support to this incorporated organization.
