Our Process

We are pleased to announce the launch of our 2020-2025 strategic planning process.

The Strategic Planning process for the Brant Community Healthcare System includes five phases – Preparation Phase, Discovery Phase, Review & Synthesize Phase, Validation Phase and Approval Phase.

The consultation is broader than ever before. We are engaging employees, medical staff, learners, volunteers, our foundation, community partners, community members, as well as staff from partner hospitals across the region, to gather their thoughts on what the future of health care should look like in our community. Engagement sessions will be held online and in numerous communities across our region.

We want to hear from YOU! There are many ways to participate in our process. We invite you to:

  • Take part in our internal and external consultations unfolding until June 25th (dates and time to be advertised)
  • Join us for one of nine electronic brainstorming sessions (dates and times to be advertised)
  • Provide your thoughts through our electronic portal.
  • Attend our speaker series (dates and times to be advertised) to inform your thinking about BCHS’s future
  • Email us your thoughts at strategic.plan@bchsys.org
  • Take part in our validation of our draft 2020-2025 plan between November 1st and December 19th
  • Encourage others to do the same!

Community Circle

Whether you’re an employee, volunteer, visitor, patient, or local community member, the “Community Circle” represents the connection we all take part in to shape our community.

Each “individual” that makes up the circle represents a member of the community’s voice and vision coming together to create one unified voice and vision for BCHS. Tying in with BCHS’s current colour scheme, we use different tones of purple, blue, yellow and green that are positive and vivid reflecting BCHS’s bright future ahead.
