Dear Valued Stakeholder/Partner:

As a valued stakeholder/partner we would like to inform you that as of April 1, 2016, the Ontario Stroke Network (OSN) and Cardiac Care Network of Ontario (CCN) have come together as a single entity to ensure a comprehensive and integrated approach to cardiac, vascular and stroke care in Ontario. The corporate structure will be the CCN.

The immediate priority is to harmonize operations, and the Ontario Stroke Network staff will relocate their operations to the CCN’s offices at #502 – 4100 Yonge Street, Toronto. The core programs and services of each organization will continue, and Chris O’Callaghan will remain as the Executive Director for stroke at CCN.

A key priority in the very near future will be for the CCN Board of Directors to oversee a strategic planning exercise that will include an examination of the vision, mission, values, name, branding, strategic priorities and performance goals of CCN in connection with the delivery of cardiac, vascular and stroke-related services.

On behalf of both organizations, we are most appreciative of the strong support we have received from the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care as well as our partners, Boards of Directors and staff throughout this process to date. We look forward to continuing to work with everyone to advance patient care in Ontario.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
