I have received extraordinary and insightful feedback after my last All Users about UHN's efforts to balance this year's budget. These efforts, coordinated by our SVPs, are designed to ensure that we balance this fiscal year (FY) and that we are positioned to balance our budget in FY 2016-17. I am committed to keeping everyone informed and this message will update you on our activities and the timelines that our teams are working towards:
The people of UHN are our most valuable asset and we will do everything possible to ensure that job loss is minimized and where possible job loss will be managed on a voluntary basis. We will do this by implementing a hiring freeze immediately with exceptions approved by the respective VPs and SVPs. Leaders will be working to reduce agency use and overtime. We will continue to utilize the Nursing Resource Team and other strategies so that we can keep our people while reducing our overall costs. We will also be looking across the organization for ways to reduce utilization of imaging and lab services and spending in non-clinical areas.
I know that UHN is resilient and we have been through challenging times before. We will pull together now, as we always have. The community that we serve continues to depend and to count on us for the incredible care that we provide. Together with the Ministry of Long Term Health and Toronto Central LHIN, we share a commitment to this community. My sincere thanks for everything that you do and for your support.
