It also provides educational opportunities, help with policies and with professional certification for administrators. Nisbet staff are active at both the regional and board level. Link
East Toronto Health Team
The provincial government has introduced a new model of health care called Ontario Health Teams. The goal is to “end hallway medicine and build a connected and sustainable health care system centered around the needs of patients.” Nisbet Lodge is part of the East Toronto Health Partners, which intends to “create a local health care system that provides coordinated care for patients, reduces wait times and leads to better health outcomes for the population.”
Almost from its inception Nisbet has provided placement and work opportunities for students. We believe that such experiences are mutually beneficial. They provide students with work experience and for staff a chance to pass along their expertise.
|Centennial College||George Brown College||Ryerson University|
|Danforth C.I.||North American College|
We take placement students in various disciplines from activation to personal support workers and registered nurses to food service workers. In addition, we offer co-op experiences from local high schools. Thanks to the federal government’s Summer Career Placement Program we provide summer employment to the children of our employees and others.
