Medical & Diagnostic Services
We completed a very busy year in medical services.
We continue to work hard to provide continuity of care for Grandview families and to ensure that new families are seen as soon as possible. Despite having a dedicated and skilled team who put in a lot of hours, our wait list continues to grow. This is mostly due to the growth of Durham Region, particularly young families. We are pleased to offer medical services to families who are new to Canada and these clients represents an increasingly large proportion of our overall.
This year we have expanded to include Medical Services at 4 Grandview locations. Our new satellite location at Dwyer is a model of the space we hope to utilize at our New Grandview headquarters. This design is working very well to serve families and to provide maximum efficiency for appointments
Grandview is an integral part of the new Durham Ontario Health Team (OHT).
The highlight of the year was having the Durham OHT selected as one of the first teams to receive approval in the province. We were absolutely thrilled to have the honourable Christine Elliott Minister of Health, attend Grandview in November 2019, along with our OHT partners. Minister Elliott made the OHT announcement at Grandview and highlighted the paediatric stream that is built in to the OHT funding which will provide support for children with medical complexity close to home, right here in Durham.
We look forward to this exciting venture through the Ministry of Health to expand an innovative and family focused model for children with medical complexity. We also look forward to expanding this model to include children with severe behavioural complexity and those children who are vulnerable based on social and economic circumstances. We are inspired to have begun work with our partners at CAREA and Durham CAS on this latter infinitive.

Sending our thanks to all the caring individuals, businesses and organizations whose contributions changed lives and made so much possible in 2019/2020. You helped Grandview kids move, play, learn, communicate and connect in ways their families never dreamed possible.
