The WEOHT is comprised of both and internal team and partners. The internal team ensures that the WEOHT pushes forward and is responsible for all backbone supports (e.g. document sharing, meetings, improvement projects, etc.). Partners support the initiatives set out by the WEOHT, which includes, but is not limited to promotion, execution, and implementation.
There are four internal team members:
- Transformation Lead
- Project Manager, Decision Support Lead
- Engagement and Equity Lead

The Steering Committee is accountable for the implementation and outcomes for the year one population. Decision-making power rests with this group. They manage detailed planning and implementation activities necessary to oversee the work of the WEOHT. They are responsible for community engagement, identifying health care priorities, creating an appropriate set of working groups to establish and execute the overall work plan, and for establishing and overseeing a secretariat to support our work in improving healthcare in Windsor-Essex.
The Partnership Council includes representation from all member organizations and the Patient, Family, and Caregiver Council, as well as other relevant stakeholders. The council is a key body for engaging and building consensus for direction of WEOHT strategy as well as sourcing of support for implementation through participation in working groups.
