Hospital Service Accountability Agreement

The Ministry of Health (MoH) and Bluewater Health have a joint responsibility to ensure accessible and high quality, patient-centered care. 

To fulfill this responsibility, the MoH and hospitals have, with the implementation of the Hospital Service Accountability Agreements, strengthened their accountability relationship to improve hospital services, and the efficiency and effectiveness of Ontario’s hospital system.

The agreements set out the rights and obligations with respect to funding and the process for planning for funding, each fiscal year.
