Current Engagements

Central LHIN is committed to engaging with patients, families, community stakeholders – along with health service providers and health care innovators – to plan an integrated local health care system that puts patients first in everything we do.  

The Central LHIN has multiple collaboration groups underway, including our Patient and Family Advisory Committee.

Currently the Central LHIN has six active Sub-region Collaborative Tables. These tables include over 80 clinical, health system and community service leaders. They are working together to define and implement opportunities to improve access, continuity in care and patient experience in each of the Central LHIN’s six sub-regions.
