Alliance for Healthier Communities Statement on new Ontario PC Government

The Alliance for Healthier Communities congratulates the Ontario PC Party on their election win and looks forward to working with them to implement their healthcare platform.

“We look forward to working with the new Minister of Health and Long-Term Care, and to providing input on government plans as they work to meet the promise of ending hallway medicine and addressing hospital overcrowding. Our members provide primary health care in the community to keep people healthy and out of hospital emergency rooms,” commented Adrianna Tetley, CEO of the Alliance for Healthier Communities.

“We were pleased to see the Ontario PC party commitments to new spending on mental health and addictions issues, as well as dental services for low income seniors delivered in Community Health Centres and Aboriginal Health Access Centres. Our member health centres are ready and willing to work with the new government to help implement these commitments.”

The Alliance for Healthier Communities is a network of over 100 community-governed primary health care organizations who serve diverse communities across Ontario. Our members believe that everyone matters and they work to ensure the best possible health and wellbeing for everyone in Ontario. The Alliance for Healthier Communities stands for healthier people, healthier communities, a more inclusive society, and a more sustainable health care system.
