WHY DO WE NEED A HUB? In 2014, local organizations, residents, and stakeholders undertook a Health Care Gap Analysis of Thorncliffe Park. It quickly became evident that, given the population’s size, complexity and diversity, there are insufficient local health services. Many living in Thorncliffe Park are in poorer health than other Toronto residents. Social and economic conditions in the community such as high un(der)employment, isolation, language and cultural barriers, overcrowded living conditions and the stresses of resettlement contribute to the neighbourhood’s health challenges. The Gap Analysis concluded thatthere is a need for comprehensive, coordinated primary health care that is responsive to the populations’ unique health and social needs and integrated in the neighbourhood.
