Project Management Consultant – Temporary Full Time

The Algoma Ontario Health Team is a team of local health professionals, organizations, and community members working to create a network where citizens will have access to the right care, right team, and right care setting when they need it. We want individuals to experience seamless transitions throughout their care journey in a system that is understandable, digitally-enabled, and collaborative.
Algoma’s older adults living with frailty, especially those who have potential to improve with intervention, are one of the first groups we hope to positively impact through our projects. To do this, we’re bringing together local and regional health professionals to co-design improved care pathways for older adults living with frailty. Through the Healthy Aging program, we aim to contribute to the healthy aging of our older adults and enable them to continue to thrive – to learn, grow, make decisions, be mobile, maintain relationships, and contribute to society.
The Project Management Coordinator will contribute to the Healthy Aging mandate through engaging stakeholders, coordinating project resources, and ensuring timelines are met. The coordinator is someone who has outstanding written and oral communication skills and has the ability to engage and manage multi-disciplinary stakeholders. The successful candidate will ideally be focused on professional growth and continuing education, and have a desire to effect positive change in healthcare facilities.
