To provide a new kind of health care for a healthier community requires the engaged support of our community. Trillium Health Partners is grateful for that support.
Your monthly giving, philanthropic gifts, in-kind donations, and corporate sponsorships have enabled us to create special programs, renew patient spaces, and make practical innovations through applied research.
Here are some of our many recent achievements that you’ve helped us with:
INNOVATIVE PROGRAMS and PARTNERSHIPS
Every year Trillium Health Partners introduces specialized programs in response to our diverse community’s needs. Here are highlights from the past year:
Paediatric Oncology Group of Ontario (POGO) - The Largest Paediatric Cancer Clinic in Ontario
THP partners with SickKids Hospital to provide world-class paediatric cancer care treatments right here in our community where our patients and families live. THP’s clinic is the largest POGO satellite clinic in the province, and treats the largest number of patients referred from SickKids for satellite care. Discover more about Ontario’s largest satellite paediatric cancer clinic.
Peel Children’s Centre - Improved Mental Health Access for Kids
Trillium Health Partners recently partnered with Peel Children’s Centre, which operates a centralized intake system for child and adolescent mental health patients and directs them to the right care provider. We are now part of their triage and assessment process, which will now better integrate our adolescent mental health care in the community and will be coordinated with our RBC Paediatric Mental Health Urgent Care Program. Learn about other mental health programs we're forging for greater care with our new Chief of Mental Health, Dr. Ian Dawe.
KidFit Health and Wellness Clinic - Fitter Kids for Stronger Families
With a generous gift of $1.25 million from the Medavie Health Foundation and support from Ontario’s Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, we’re making a difference for our kids through our new KidFit Health and Wellness Clinic for children who suffer from child obesity, type 2 diabetes, and related mental health issues. Already in our first intake of referred children, the KidFit Program is helping families achieve greater long-term health.
ENHANCED SPACES and EQUIPMENT
Every year Trillium Health Partners invests in reconfigured patient-first care spaces and the latest technologies. Here are some highlights:
Home Hemodialysis - Important Home Care for Renal Patients
Trillium Health Partners recently opened the Renal Transition Unit to provide training and support for our renal patients so that they can perform dialysis from home at a time of their choosing. Our innovative Transition Unit—on Watline Avenue—provides home dialysis training, the latest technology, and comprehensive 24-hour phone support. Renal patients, like Vijaya Katwaroo, can now seamlessly integrate dialysis into their lives in a way that works best for them.
Neuroscience Special Care Unit - Highest Quality Care
The Neuroscience Special Care Unit was recently redesigned to be more sensitive to patients’ needs and provide the highest quality care. The new unit now offers private rooms with individualized climate and sensory-controlled settings, so that sensitive neurological patients can control environmental conditions like light and sound levels.
CryoAblation Catheter - “A Game Changer”
This year Trillium Health Partners gained a new technology for atrial fibrillation patients, the CryoAblation catheter–entirely through generous donor support. See for yourself why our Electrophysiology Lab physicians call the CryoAblation Catheter “a game changer” in this inspiring donor story.
RESEARCH and EDUCATION
Trillium Health Partners is committed to training the next generation of health care providers for our community:
Trillium-St. Michael’s Collaborative Program for Interventional Cardiology - Advanced Cardiac Training
Trillium Health Partners’ leading interventional cardiology program—which has the fastest average time for unblocking coronary arteries in Ontario—has partnered with Toronto’s St. Michael’s Hospital to create the Trillium-St. Michael’s Collaborative Program for Interventional Cardiology. This innovative partnership allows the program’s Fellows—licenced physicians who seek a second year of advanced training—to gain regular rotations and specialized training on a diverse range of cardiac cases with cardiac experts at both hospitals’ catheterization laboratories, where urgent cardiac surgeries are performed. Learn more about our Cardiac Health program.
Over 35 Scholarships Each Year - Supporting Medical Education for Our Community
Trillium Health Partners provides over 35 scholarships and bursaries per year in support of medical excellence in our community. Establishing an endowment as a planned gift can support lasting medical education for our community for generations.
The Sean and Lynne Seawright Centre for Health Education - Inaugural Graduating Class
Trillium Health Partners is affiliated with the University of Toronto to deliver medical education excellence through the Mississauga Academy of Medicine. This year we celebrated the Academy’s first graduation.
