Understanding the Ontario Health Care System


The South East Local Health Integration Network (LHIN) and LHINs across the province not only allocate funding to Health Service Providers across the region (Community Support Services, Hospitals, Long-Term Care, etc.), but also works with each provider to plan, engage, and make decisions at a local level with the goal to improve the health care system for patient, clients, families, and the community at large.
