Improving care for kids with complex special needs
The Ontario government is investing $97 million over three years to launch a pilot program at three major hospitals in Toronto, Hamilton and Ottawa to help children and youth with complex special needs such as developmental and intellectual disabilities, mental health concerns, chronic conditions and physical disabilities, connect to the highly individualized and specialized care they need.
Beginning in April 2023, the Integrated Pathway for Children and Youth with Extensive Needs pilot program will be offered at McMaster Children’s Hospital (MCH), Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital and Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario.
MCH is grateful for this much-needed investment in the pediatric health system.
