Chief of Staff and Chief Nursing Executive Message

We are grateful to Humber’s leadership team for its continued commitment to creating a supportive environment for our medical, nursing, and professional staff teams to provide exceptional, compassionate patient care this past year.

Discharge Planning Pathway

In collaboration with the Central Local Health Integration Network (LHIN) and hospitals, Humber helped create the discharge planning pathway to standardize discharge planning. Humber then created the web-based iPlan application to centralize and align patient care services with home and community needs for timely access to care. iPlan, which captures an overview of all activity, was adopted by hospitals throughout the Central LHIN.
