Our regional hospital is joining forces with 18 others from across Canada to offer the Acute Care for Elders program.
The ACE program is adapted from a Mount Sinai Hospital elder strategy and is a partnership between several health care and senior citizen foundations.
Officials say local doctors will have access to expert coaches in Toronto.
They add the program will build the capacity of hospital leaders, front-line managers and providers to better meet the complex needs of ill older adults.
Our local hospital is seeing 40-thousand dollars in funding to run the program starting this month to March of next year.
