The Province of New Brunswick and Medavie Health Services recently announced a new partnership that will integrate the New Brunswick Extra-Mural Program, Tele-Care 811 and Ambulance New Brunswick to better meet the needs of our aging population.
Publicly-funded health services will continue to be delivered by public employees and will be managed by Medavie Health Services New Brunswick, a not-for-profit organization that is based in New Brunswick. Thanks to this new partnership, patients will have easier access to more in-home care as a result of better coordination and information sharing between health professionals.
The same services New Brunswickers count on from the Extra-Mural Program, Tele-Care 811 and Ambulance New Brunswick will continue to be available. This coordinated approach will keep patients at the heart of the health-care model. More communication and information sharing will ensure the right care, at the right time and place, by the right provider.
