Seven Oaks General Hospital
Seven Oaks General Hospital is home to the Seven Oaks Hospital Chronic Disease Innovation Centre, which is also supported philanthropically by Seven Oaks General Hospital Foundation. Seven Oaks Hospital provides the space, and the connection to patient care. While the work at CDIC has global reach, it also directly impacts the local community. Research results are applied in the practice at Seven Oaks Hospital to directly improve patient care. And, community physicians are becoming knowledge users incorporating new methods into their practice. Together with Seven Oaks Hospital, CDIC provides a community solution to chronic disease prevention and management.
The Wellness Institute is a self-supporting non-profit organization, integrated into the Seven Oaks General Hospital campus. It is an important part of the continuum of care – from prevention, to recovery and rehabilitation. The Wellness Institute strive to safely improve and maintain the health and well-being of members, no matter their fitness level. They also are our partners in applied research on chronic disease treatment and prevention.
Innovation in chronic disease research, treatment and programs at a community hospital is changing the way healthcare is delivered. See how Seven Oaks created the Wellness Institute and the Chronic Disease Innovation Centre to help patients stay well and out of hospital.
