For Physicians and Primary Care Providers

Link your patients to Home and Community Care and other health programs and services

The moment you connect your patient to us, you link them to a wide network of caring professionals. Whether it is specialized nursing and home care or community resources such as "meals on wheels", we open the door to community services designed to help patients remain at home.

Our primary care hotline makes it easy for you to contact a Central LHIN care coordinator. We’re here to support you and your patients.

Tel:  416-222-2241 or 1-888-470-2222 (Press 1 for Home and Community Care, then press 4 to speak to a care coordinator) 

Fax:  416-222-6517 or 905-952-2404

When you refer a patient to home and community care, you give them an advocate in the health care system. Our care coordinators are specialists in assessing and finding ways to meet patients' home and community care needs. We link patients to an extensive array of care services, including specialized nursing, palliative nurse practitioners, rapid response nurses to assist with hospital-to-home transitions, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, as well as personal support workers and more.
