JBH’s PHAST Program Takes Home a Series of Awards

Joseph Brant Hospital’s PHAST program was awarded $30,000 for the Overall Challenge in the Priority Health Innovation Challenge held by the Canadian Foundation for Healthcare Improvement.

The Overall Challenge asked teams to demonstrate overall how they contributed to improving access to care in mental health and addictions and home and community care.

The Prioritizing Health through Acute Stabilization and Transition (PHAST) program at Joseph Brant Hospital has won over $50,000 in awards through the challenge including:
 

  • Early Innovator Award (2019)
  • Mini-Challenge #1 (2019)
  • Mini Challenge #3 Project Charter (2020)
  • Impact Challenge (2020) 
  • Overall Challenge (2020) 

PHAST is an outpatient program that ensures immediate help is available to people ages 16 and up suffering a mental health or addiction crisis and to provide options for ongoing care outside a hospital setting. After stabilizing the patient, PHAST’s interdisciplinary team provides a warm, personal transfer to appropriate follow-up services through a network of community partners.
