The Central Local Health Integration Network (LHIN) is one of 14 LHINs established by the provincial government through the Local Health System Integration Act (LHSIA), 2006, to plan, fund and integrate health services at the local level.
In 2017, in accordance with the Patients First Act, the LHINs mandate was expanded to include responsibility for providing home and community care services delivery.
In fulfilling our mandate to create a robust, integrated system of care and service delivery for almost 1.9 million people who reside in the Central LHIN, we collaborate with patients, caregivers and families along with hospitals, community health centres, long-term care homes, mental health and addiction service providers, other service providers and community support service organizations, primary care providers, public health units, and many others.

Note that some health service providers deliver care and services in multiple sectors.
