Discharge Planning

Your health care team will work toward your discharge home from the moment you are admitted to the hospital.  The health care team is multi-disciplined and is comprised of your physician, nursing staff, physiotherapist, occupational therapist, dietitian, diagnostic imaging staff, laboratory staff and discharge planning staff.

At Muskoka Algonquin Healthcare, discharge planning is carried out in partnership with Care Coordinators from the North Simcoe Muskoka Local Health Integration Network (NSM LHIN).

The NSM LHIN is one of 14 in Ontario funded by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care.  Care Coordinators at the NSM LHIN connect you with the care you need at home and in your community.  They support an individual getting the care needed to stay well, heal at home, and stay safe in their home longer.

All home and community care services provided by the NSM LHIN are publicly funded and are at no cost to those with a valid Ontario Health Card.
