Ontario is improving our health care system to give patients better connected care, focused on their needs.
Effective April 1, 2021:
- Home and Community Care Support Services Central is one of 14 Home and Community Care Support Services organizations in Ontario with a focused mandate to deliver local health care services such as home and community care and long-term care home placement. These organizations were previously known as Local Health Integration Networks (LHINs) at a time when they also led local health care planning and funding, and those functions are now part of Ontario Health.
- Home and Community Care Support Services is dedicated to ensuring the ongoing delivery of local services while Ontario makes changes to improve the health care system to give patients better connected care with health care providers working as one coordinated team in Ontario Health Teams. Our name has changed but services and contact information remain the same, including home and community care, long-term care home placement and help finding services and local doctors.
- The health care planning and funding functions previously within the LHINs are now part of Ontario Health, a government agency responsible for ensuring Ontarians continue to receive high-quality health care services where and when they need them.
