Our Future

Imagine Headwaters Planning Our Hospital’s Future Together was chosen to support our true intention of inclusiveness, as we imagine the future of care at our community hospital.

We will work together to establish clear priorities for our programs and services. We will engage members of the Headwaters family – from front line staff to physicians, board members, local health care partners, volunteers, donors and community members – to create this vision.

We want you to help us plan our future. What are our strengths and opportunities? What are the programs and services we can provide to bring care close to home?

Headwaters’ Role

Our hospital is a medium-size community hospital serving the geographic region of Dufferin County – Caledon. We are funded by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care through the Central West Local Health Integration Network.

Headwaters offers a large variety of programs and services from women’s and children’s health and palliative care through to emergency care and rehabilitation.

The hospital has clinical partnerships to support the community’s needs in stroke care, cancer care, heart health and renal care.

Our community support is tremendous. Each piece of hospital equipment is funded by our community. Donors have a direct impact on those cared for at Headwaters each and every day.

Our goal is to provide as much care to our patients, close to home.

Our History

In 1907, a group of local women recognized the need for a hospital to provide health care services close to home. Five years later in 1912, the first hospital opened in Orangeville, ready to care for the town’s 1,000 residents. 106 years later,

Headwaters now serves  the Dufferin County – Caledon area with more than 135,000 residents, but our vision and commitment remains the same as it did over a century ago: provide our patients and the community with exceptional care, close to home.

Your Hospital. Your Voice. Our Future.
