Learning + Innovation
Grand River Hospital is dedicated to improving care through learning, research and innovation. Through partnerships with institutions across the Waterloo-Wellington region in the tech, innovation, and education sectors, we provide researchers and clinicians with the opportunity to work together on groundbreaking projects that lead to new advancements in treatment and care. Our current research priorities are cancer, chronic disease management, ageing well, care of older adults, patient and family experience with care, and innovation in health care.
Learning is also a key value at Grand River Hospital that serves as a foundation for innovation. By offering education and training support related to leadership and personal development, our staff have the opportunity to grow as individuals and as members of a team, which in turn has a positive impact on patient care, service delivery, retention, and organizational culture.
Looking forward, Grand River strives to transform health care delivery and explore new, innovative approaches to delivering high quality health care as the need for health services continues to grow. Our advantageous location as a health care institution in the Maple Valley of Innovation, surrounded by successful start-ups and by some of the most innovative medtech companies in Canada, favours Grand River Hospital as a key partner to advance medtech innovation in our region and beyond.
