After an international search, Dr. Sacha Bhatia has been appointed the F.M. Hill Chair in Health System Solutions at Women’s College Hospital for a term of five years.

Dr. Bhatia is the founding director of the Women’s College Hospital Institute for Health System Solutions and Virtual Care (WIHV), a clinician scientist at Women’s College Research Institute (WCRI) and a cardiologist in the Department of Medicine at Women’s College Hospital (WCH).

Dr. Bhatia is a health policy researcher with experience in health system innovation. At the University of Toronto, he is an assistant professor in the Department of Medicine and the Institute of Health Policy, Management and Evaluation. He is the national Evaluation Lead for Canada’s Choosing Wisely Campaign – an effort to help clinicians and patients engage in conversations about unnecessary tests and treatments to reduce harm and improve care, while stewarding precious healthcare resources. Dr. Bhatia’s research program has improved policy and practice and his leadership has helped shape WIHV’s mission and priorities.

The F.M. Hill Chair in Health System Solutions at Women’s College Hospital was made possible through a legacy gift from the late Dr. F. Marguerite Hill, former physician-in-chief at WCH and a devoted long-time supporter. The chair was established by Women’s College Hospital Foundation within the Department of Medicine and Women’s College Research Institute at Women’s College Hospital in collaboration with the University of Toronto.

As the new chair, Dr. Bhatia will be working with an innovative and successful cross-disciplinary team that works in healthcare policy, program evaluation and groundbreaking quality improvement work that addresses some of the most pressing challenges in Canadian healthcare.
