Who We Are

Welcome to

Kids Come First Health Team

The Ontario Ministry of Health supports the new Kids Come First Health Team! Kids Come First includes over 60 organizations, family and youth partners, nearly 1,100 physicians, and thousands of individuals including children, youth and families who have come together to deliver services in ways that matter to children, youth and families.

Priorities

The Kids Come First Health Team will implement its Integrated Home and Community Care plan which includes connecting care and providers in hospital, home, school and community settings. Kids Come First will also implement a regional, bilingual, Coordinated Access and Navigation Service — One Call/One Click — for children and youth with complex mental health and addiction needs, and the families and physicians that care for them. The new model for health care in Ontario will have everyone connected to an Ontario Health Team (OHT). Coming together as an organization focused only on children and youth, our Kids Come First Health Team will enhance, not replace, other OHT’s by offering them pediatric expertise and working collaboratively with them to provide seamless care for children and youth.

“It takes a village to raise a child. It also takes a village to keep a child safe. Bringing together these Kids Come First partners each day to talk about what we’re seeing, allows us to wrap around young people and their families more quickly and effectively. We each have a part to play and we do it better when we do it together.” —Dr. Michelle Ward, Division Head, Child and Youth Protection, CHEO
