In July 1997, the Health Services Restructuring Commission directed the Mississauga Hospital and Queensway General Hospital to merge to become a new hospital corporation. By April 1, 1998, the two hospitals had successfully amalgamated.
On October 6, 1998, Trillium Health Centre unveiled its new name and visual identity at special ceremonies at each hospital location. In the same year, a single board of directors assembled to form Trillium Health Centre Foundation. These events launched the beginning of a bright future. Together, the hospital and Foundation have worked together to lead extraordinary health innovation that is transforming the health care experience for our catchment population – over one million residents in Mississauga, West Toronto and the surrounding region.
On April 7, 2011 an announcement was made about the intent to amalgamate Trillium Health Centre and The Credit Valley Hospital to bring the best possible patient care services to the communities of Mississauga and West Toronto. After an intensive and comprehensive review of the clinical benefits of the merger, community consultation and due diligence, the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care gave final approval for the amalgamation of the two organizations.
December 1, 2011 marked the beginning of a new chapter in the hospitals’ history and a turning point in a longer-term process of bringing the two hospitals together to provide even better service and meet the rapidly changing health needs of our community – one of the fastest growing in Canada.
On November 30, 2012, Trillium Health Centre and The Credit Valley Hospital celebrated the first anniversary as one organization with the launch of a new name, brand and exciting strategic plan: Trillium Health Partners, Better Together.
Trillium Health Partners encompasses three sites – Mississauga Hospital, Queensway Health Centre and Credit Valley Hospital – to form the largest community hospital in the province. Academically affiliated with the Mississauga Academy of Medicine of the University of Toronto Mississauga, Trillium Health Partners is committed to a new approach to health care.
While the Foundations continue to work collaboratively on select projects, such as the Mississauga Academy of Medicine, there are no plans in place for us to join together. Trillium Health Centre Foundation will continue to fundraise for Trillium Health Partners Mississauga Hospital and Queensway Health Centre sites, focusing on the hospital-wide priorities of the current Giving 110% campaign.
