The future that citizens, stakeholders and providers have long asked for — local decision-making for health improvement — is now.
The Local Health System Integration Act, 2006, has changed the way that our health system is managed. The Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care created 14 Local Health Integration Networks (LHINs) to plan, integrate, and fund health care based on local needs. LHINs do not provide services; our role is to ensure the right services in the right place at the right time. Our goal is a health system that keeps people healthy, gets them good care when they are sick, and will be there for our children and grandchildren.
