About Our LHIN

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 its mandate to create a robust, integrated system of care and service delivery for almost 1.9 million people who reside in the Central LHIN, the Central LHIN collaborates with hospitals, community health centres, long-term care homes, mental health and addiction service providers, community support services, patients, caregivers and families, as well as primary care providers and public health units.
