WDMH’s strategic plan identifies research as one of the three strategic directions. We want to make evidence-informed decisions, always asking ‘why’ and ‘how can we do this better’. Then we want to apply the knowledge that we gain for better patient care.


WDMH partners with established research institutes and university partners including Elisabeth Bruyère Research Institute (EBRI), Women's College Hospital, Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario and Boehringer Ingelheim. 

We have the opportunity to encourage established researchers to include the rural environment and related factors in their research projects. Our focus is on increasing participation, awareness and knowledge about the research process by being part of existing research teams and projects. 


Research impacts healthcare delivery. In particular, research at WDMH benefits rural healthcare delivery for our local communities.

It`s not just the outcomes that will make research rewarding.
The research process itself - the process of exploring the unknown and discovering
answers to previously unanswered questions - can be exciting.
