PATH-C HND: Improvement Project - The Transition Between Hospital Care and Community Care at Notre-Dame Hospital

The integration of the Notre-Dame Hospital (HND) within the Centre intégré universitaire de santé et de services sociaux du Centre-Sud-de-l’Île-de-Montréal requires the transformation of its current vocation. The HND will change from a teaching hospital that provides subspecialty care to a community hospital that provides community care to the catchment area. A new service offering will be put together for Montreal’s downtown population to address urban healthcare issues. Population data point to poor health outcomes, mental health issues, vulnerable clients, social inequalities, and a poor fit between the population’s needs and the actual care provided.

The Improvement Project to enhance the Transition between Hospital Care and Community Care (PATH-C HND) aims to: 1) Plan a service offering in order for the HND community hospital to meet the needs of its population, including vulnerable patients who live in the city’s core, through strong local front-line care; 2) develop an optimal transition between hospital care and community care and prevent the use of emergency services through an integrated approach that promotes access, continuity and flow across the entire care journey. Based on the analysis of population’s characteristics and available evidence, the PATH-C HND project aims to define a new service offering and establish the connections required with the community to better meet the needs of downtown Montreal’s population.
