Canada has a new leader in its healthcare system. Dr. Eric Hoskins is Ontario’s new minister of health and in that task will oversee the country’s largest and most expensive system. We hope that Dr. Hoskins’ appointment will signal a new chapter in the relationship with patients and families and especially those whose experiences with the healthcare system have caused them to question its commitment to transparency and accountability.
It’s an important job on so many levels and much is riding on the outcome. So, as he begins his new duties, Patient Protection Canada would like to wish Dr. Hoskins all the best.
