As a global leader in pediatric health, dedicated to helping children and youth live their best lives, CHEO provides excellence in complex pediatric care, research and education. We are committed to partnering with families and the community to provide exceptional care — where, when and how it’s needed. In pursuit of our vision and values, CHEO has always prioritized direct investments in care and has sought to carefully manage and control administrative expenses.
We’ve put a lot of focus on driving down our administrative costs while providing exceptional care.
- After amalgamating with the Ottawa Children’s Treatment Centre in 2016, we reduced the number of executive positions from 12 to seven, resulting in a savings of more than $830,000 in 2018.
- Even though CHEO is a larger and more complex organization than it was in 2016, the overall number of management positions has been reduced at the top three levels of the organization.
- Since 2010, our executive salaries have been frozen.
CHEO is committed to allocating more of its resources to patient care and services.
