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, coordinate, integrate and fund health services at the local level. 

LHINs work with local health service providers and communities to design real-life solutions that improve access to care, better coordinate services and improve people’s experience with the health care system. 

Bringing together health care providers from sectors such as hospitals, community care, community support services, community mental health and addictions, community health centres and long-term care as well as collaborating with primary care providers, LHINs work locally to achieve meaningful system improvements – results that could only be achieved at a local level based on a thorough understanding of our local health care needs and established relationships.

In 2017/18, Central LHIN’s budget of $1.8 billion was allocated across a range of health programs through 98 Service Accountability Agreements delivered by our health service providers, including:

  • Seven* public and two private hospitals
  • 46 long-term care homes
  • 33 community support service providers
  • 23 mental health and addictions service providers
  • Two community health centres
Note that some health service providers deliver care and services in multiple sectors.

*One of the seven accountability agreements is with a hospital outside the Central LHIN.
