Trillium Health Centre’s multifaceted definition of success encompasses the six core values that set the standard by which the organization, and its health care professionals, operate: excellence, teamwork, balance, service, integrity and learning. These values have been instrumental in making Trillium the preferred health care provider for more than one million residents in Mississauga, south Etobicoke and the surrounding region, and are the key to achieving sustainable value for our patients, our people and our community.

Addressing a wide variety of health care needs, Trillium’s clinical services are organized into eight health systems: Cardiac, Neuromusculoskeletal, Emergency, Medical, Surgical, Women’s and Children’s, Mental Health and Diagnostic Imaging/Laboratory/ Pharmacy.

Trillium is a Regional Centre for Stroke, Neurosurgery and Cardiac Services, has the busiest emergency service in Canada, and is home to a model ambulatory care centre and the largest free-standing day surgery facility in North America. Trillium’s commitment to quality of work life and excellence in all areas is reflected in its ongoing distinction as the winner of the national 3M Health Care Quality Award and, most recently, the Healthy Hospital Innovators Award. We are transforming the health care experience through an integrated approach that puts the patient at the centre of decision-making.

Allied health professionals find here a challenging practice environment, with rehab programs that are considered leaders in the province, as well as new programs, including the Seniors Health Initiative, designed to meet the needs of Trillium’s highly diverse patient populations.

Occupational Therapists

More than 70 professionals make up the occupational therapy team at Trillium, and each is charged with the important task of helping patients return, as much as possible, to life as they previously knew it. To that end, clinicians aid patients in relearning their daily living activities, from brushing their teeth to getting in and out of a car. Guiding and supporting patients each step of the way and liaising closely with families to ensure success, OTs are committed to devising and executing personalized, goaloriented treatment plans.

In advancing professionally at Trillium, OT’s participate in Trillium initiatives such as our Safe Step and Falls Restraint programs. OTs may also collaborate with respiratory therapists by performing ADL-O2 assessments to determine patient eligibility for home oxygen funding.

Physiotherapists

Trillium’s more than 80 physiotherapists and physiotherapy assistants play a critical role in helping patients reach their optimum physical condition. Physiotherapists use their assessment, pain management and mobility enhancement skills to facilitate a patient’s recovery. They also interact with patients and their families, and with other health care team members, to devise comprehensive treatment plans.

Physiotherapists at Trillium are well represented in decision-making and planning processes. This includes participating on hospital-wide and discipline-specific committees that focus on quality, standards of care and trends in health care.

Social Workers

When illness strikes, Trillium’s 65 social workers play an integral role in addressing the psychological, social, emotional and environmental needs of patients. Fulfilling the role of researcher, interdisciplinary consultant and patient advocate, each social worker helps patients and their families cope with health-related factors and transitions, and achieve and maintain optimum well-being.

At Trillium, social workers are able to explore and practise the full scope of their profession, including individual counselling, marital/family therapy, group therapy, stress management, grief counselling, crisis intervention, research, patient and family advocacy, and information, education and referral to community resources.
Speech-Language Pathologists

Speech-language pathologists work with clients to help them gain, and in some cases regain, essential skills of life - communication and swallowing. With a staff of 16 SLPs and a communicative disorders assistant working in acute, rehabilitation, complex continuing care and ambulatory care, they cover the population spectrum from paediatric to geriatric. SLPs work within every health system at Trillium. Paediatric clinicians identify and provide intervention to children at risk of developmental difficulties, and to those up to the age of five who have difficulty talkingor understanding language. Clinicians working with the adult population are instrumental in managing clients with stroke, brain injury, neurodegenerative and complex medical disorders.

In promoting an environment of skill development and enhancement, Trillium creates many opportunities for SLPs to act as mentors to graduate students in speechlanguage pathology programs, as well as communicative disorders assistant students. The mutual learning that takes place allows clinicians to stay abreast of new training at the graduate level, further hone their own skills, and forge valuable partnerships with teaching facilities.


Integrated interprofessional care and learning opportunities

Working across all disciplines to their full scope of practice, in a collegial, supportive, interdisciplinary environment, allied health professionals have ongoing opportunities to share information and ideas with each other and with other team members, such as nurses, pharmacists and respiratory therapists.

Communication between staff is central to Trillium’s success, and all clinicians are encouraged to provide input on matters of professional practice. They also interact with other learning facilities through clinical placements in the development of students.

Clinicians can learn about issues and trends, and regularly fine-tune their clinical skills and expertise, by accessing Trillium’s broad selection of professional development initiatives, including scholarships, bursaries, mentorships, training programs, and its annual two-day Back to School conference, featuring high-profile keynote speakers from the health care arena.
