Job Description

Care Coordinator

 

If you are a Registered Nurse, an Occupational Therapist, a Physiotherapist, a Speech-Language Pathologist, a Dietician or a Social Worker in Ontario, the Toronto Central Community Care Access Centre (CCAC) would like you to become part of our team. As a Care Coordinator, you will act as a liaison between your clients and the various health care providers they need to achieve optimal health, independence and dignity. Drawing on your knowledge of health services, you will conduct face-to-face or telephone assessments and help your clients navigate through the complexities of the health care environment. This will involve explaining relevant services, and coordinating and monitoring their implementation. You will be there to facilitate every step of your clients' health care experience, linking them with the right information and helping them understand and manage their short- and long-term health care goals.

 

Care Coordinators may work in a variety of settings to plan and coordinate care - the community, a local hospital or one of our offices - so be sure to indicate whether you have a preference.

WHO WE ARE:

 

Community Care Access Centres (CCACs) have a unique mandate within Ontario’s health care system. Each year, over 637,000 Ontarians count on their local CCACs to help them navigate the complexities of the health care system and access quality care and support. CCACs play a dual role in meeting evolving community needs: they facilitate the delivery of community health care services by overseeing and managing contracted service providers; and they provide direct clinical care through new programs, including innovative nursing initiatives such as the School Mental Health and Addictions Nursing Team, and the Rapid Response Nursing Team.

 

The Toronto Central Community Care Access Centre is governed by the requirements of the French Language Services Act and therefore encourages applications from French speaking candidates.

 

The Toronto Central CCAC is a scent-free work place.

 

We offer competitive salaries, comprehensive benefits and continuing education initiatives.

 

Toronto Central CCAC is committed to accommodating people with disabilities as part of our hiring process. If you have special requirements, please advise Human Resources during the recruitment process.
