Mount Sinai Hospital, Bridgepoint Active Healthcare and Circle of Care to form Sinai Health System

Posted on Thursday January 22, 2015

Today marks the official launch of the new Sinai Health System!

Through a voluntary amalgamation that took effect January 1, 2015, Sinai Health System brings together Mount Sinai Hospital and Bridgepoint Active Healthcare. Joining as an affiliate is leading home care and community services provider Circle of Care, extending Sinai Health System’s continuum of care into home and community programs. Together, our vision is to create a premier exemplar of an integrated health system for the future.

The Sinai Health System will focus on innovation and integration to address the challenges and opportunities arising from a rapidly aging population and the growing number of people living today with complex health conditions.

The new Sinai Health System will combine acute care, complex and rehabilitative care, primary care, home care, and other community-based services to create an integrated continuum of care across the life course, from healthy beginnings to healthy aging. Mount Sinai, Bridgepoint and Circle of Care will work together to create care models for patients who require care from all segments of the system enabling seamless transitions, an improved patient experience and improved outcomes.

Bridgepoint and Mount Sinai will operate as one corporation with one board, one management team, one medical staff. We will work as an open system, strengthening existing partnerships, and seeking out new partners to deliver better access to care. While working together as a system, Bridgepoint and Mount Sinai will continue to deliver their excellent programs and services, and retain their names and unique identities. Circle of Care will operate as an affiliate organization, linked into the Sinai Health System at the governance, planning, and system development level.

Together, we will elevate standards of clinical practice and excellence fueled by best in class research and education. Research to improve care for complex patients will be accelerated by integrating Bridgepoint’s Collaboratory for Research and Innovation into Mount Sinai’s internationally recognized Lunenfeld-Tanenbaum Research Institute.

The Sinai Health System is fully affiliated with the University of Toronto Faculty of Medicine, expanding the scope of the Wightman Berris Academy and developing the clinical, education and investigative synergies among complex acute and chronic conditions, and rehabilitation. 

This is an exciting new beginning for our organizations.  We look forward to continuing to partner with you as we bring the new Sinai Health System to life!
