Halton Healthcare Services, which operates hospitals in Oakville, Milton and Halton Hills, asked H+K to develop and implement a community engagement and communications strategy to build support for the New Oakville Hospital. Community acceptance was needed to relocate the hospital to the north end of town and for municipal funding for the redevelopment project. After community meetings, site tours, a hospital-ambassador program and communications through the media and web, the Oakville Town Council voted to support Halton Healthcare’s request of up to $200 million toward the New Oakville Hospital.
