Transforming Care to Serve People Better | A conversation between Dr. Michael Guerriere, Extendicare CEO and Cameron Love, CEO of The Ottawa Hospital
This past fall, in partnership with The Ottawa Hospital, our Transitional care unit (TCU) at Extendicare West End Villa in Ottawa doubled in size to care for up to 95 patients as they transition from extended stays in the hospital to an Extendicare care setting that better meets their complex care needs and supports improved quality of life for both them and their families
Innovative partnerships like this one are needed to close gaps in seniors’ care in the broader health system. By working together, Extendicare and the Ottawa Hospital are better able to meet the diverse health needs of residents and patients in the Ottawa region, while also alleviating pressure on the hospital system by freeing up resources for those in need of acute care.

You can also listen to the broader conversation between our CEO, Dr. Michael Guerriere, and Cameron Love, CEO of the Ottawa Hospital, on the OLTCA’s podcast, Coming of Age, as they discussed how long-term care operators and hospitals can work more closely together – across the care continuum - to better meet the needs of aging Canadians.
