Holland Bloorview’s new five-year strategic plan sets out to define us as world leaders in the field of childhood disability. As Canada’s largest children’s rehabilitation hospital, we are already at the forefront of clinical care, research and teaching. Our new plan positions us to thrive on the world-stage as we take on the next five years. Our new strategic plan, Leadership in Childhood Disability: 2012-2017, is the product of the ideas and wisdom of our many stakeholders, most importantly, our clients and their families. It is firmly anchored by our vision: A world of possibility for kids with disability. While our new plan is forward-looking, it is founded on a remarkable history. The achievements of our outgoing strategic plan, Infinite Possibilities 2007-2012, and over a century of dedication to improving quality of life for kids with disabilities and their families, is the basis for some new and exciting directions for Holland Bloorview. Holland Bloorview’s determination to lead has inspired us to be ambitious as well as thoughtful in our planning. Our new strategic plan will help us navigate a challenging health care environment, while we continue to make significant strides to deliver world-class care, research and teaching. In the midst of challenge and change, we will focus our organizational efforts on four strategic directions:

Transform Care | Lead the System | Accelerate Knowledge | Inspire our People In 2012, we are facing a toughening fiscal and legislative climate in health care, focused on greater economic restraint and enhanced transparency and accountability. The new challenges of the next five years are never certain, but our new strategic plan prepares us to respond the way leaders do: to stay focused on our directions. Our four strategic directions map out where we need to go. But we can’t get there alone. Our success depends on engagement, collaboration and partnership with clients and families, staff, volunteers, our hospital foundation, donors, academic partners, government and community providers throughout the province. Our combined efforts will ensure that we continue to make a significant difference in the lives of children and youth with disabilities.

RESPECT Embracing diversity, we seek to empower people and treat everyone with empathy and respect. A teaching hospital fully affiliated with
