Care Coordinator – Simcoe County

Casual and Temporary, Full-time Opportunities

Ontario's health care system is evolving and, as part of Ontario Health, the North Simcoe Muskoka Local Health Integration Network (LHIN), in close partnership with Ontario Health Teams (OHTs), is on the forefront of helping to build a modern, technologically supported health care system. This will enable integrated teams of health care professionals to deliver the best possible care for improved patient outcomes.

By building high-performing integrated care delivery systems that provide seamless, fully coordinated care for patients, OHTs will help to achieve better outcomes for patients across the province. As an essential component of an integrated and sustainable health care system, this includes a strong and robust Home and Community Care sector.

More than ever, your skills and experience are required now and into the future, which is why we want you to join us in being part of the journey. We invite you to learn more about OHTs in our area by clicking here. The future of health care in Ontario is now. Join Ontario Health's North Simcoe Muskoka LHIN team and, together, we will build a healthier community for all.

As a Care Coordinator, working in collaboration with the patient, physician, caregiver and/or family, you will develop treatment goals, and service and discharge plans in a fiscally responsible manner through face-to-face assessments. In partnership with care partners, you will promote awareness of the services of the LHIN and act as an entry point to the community health care system.

  • Excellent interpersonal, communication, assessment and decision-making skills.
  • Effective time management skills, with the ability to work independently and co-operatively in a busy multidisciplinary environment.
  • Knowledge of health care delivery system and community resources.
  • Ability to use a computer in a Windows environment in a remote environment.
  • A valid driver's licence and access to a reliable vehicle, as there is a requirement of travel. (Please review our North Simcoe Muskoka geography to ensure it is understood where our patients are being served).
  • Ability to communicate in French or other languages, an asset.

  • $35.34 per hour to a maximum of $46.11 per hour, based on experience.
